The Miller Farm

On November 16, 2018 in Mature Birds by MacFarlane Staff

The Miller Farm

MacFarlane Pheasants raises pheasants in Wisconsin, Missouri, and South Dakota. The South Dakota farm is leased and we call it the Miller Farm. It is located about 10 miles outside of Miller, South Dakota. The farm was a pheasant production facility when we started using it. The owner contacted MacFarlane Pheasants online and offered to lease us the farm when he was ready to get out of the pheasant business. After careful consideration, we decided it would be a great idea to have a physical presence in South Dakota, where we sell lots of birds. Read More »

Both cases change our seasonal chore routines and affect our pheasants and other wild birds. We have over 100 acres of pens and thousands of birds to worry about, whether it rains or shines! Since we have had such a rainy season this year, we’ll focus on rain for this article. Read More »
