MacFarlane Pheasants, Inc. Employs Len Narra from Durbanville, South Africa

Published On: November 24, 2017Categories: Our Team

Len Narra is one of 10 employees from South Africa, who was hired to fill short-term positions at MacFarlane Pheasants, Inc. Len arrived in March 2017 and will return to his hometown in Durbanville, South Africa in January. Durbanville is a rural, residential suburb in the Western Cape Province of South Africa. It is surrounded by farms that produce wheat and wine.

Len applied for work in the United States, for an opportunity to see a different part of the world, while earning an income. MacFarlane Pheasants appealed to his sense of adventure. He had never heard of game bird farming and wanted to give it a try! Len had just finished his studies and had been chasing the dream of becoming a professional rugby player when he became interested in working in the United States.

Len currently works on the pen crew on our farm. He catches birds to help fill our orders for game birds. Len has learned a great deal in the few months he has been here and will soon get to experience a whole new season in Wisconsin that is quite a change from Durbanville.

Len enjoys experiencing a new culture and has found things he loves in this area, besides work! He enjoys American pizza and all kinds of music.

The things he misses are South African “braai vies” and “biltong,” better known here as barbecue and jerky. He misses traditional South African food and sushi buffets, his family, and his dog Zeus. The experience at MacFarlane Pheasants is a once in a lifetime experience, though, and Len appreciates the opportunity.

It is our pleasure to learn about the South African culture through Len and the other South African employees and we have appreciated how engaged Len and other workers have been in learning the game bird business.
