To learn more about the fancy and become a better breeder, he has developed friendships with poultry breeders around the world. He and his wife, Sharon, have been active members of the TVPC since 2013. They have a flock of about 250 chickens and a small flock of guineas, turkeys, peacocks and geese.

Hope Holt- Show Secretary
I am a wife of almost 21 years married to my best friend Jim. Mom of 2 beautiful girls, 19 year old Stephanie and 11 year old Emmalyn. We sold our farm in Maine in 2018 and went fulltime RV. I grew up around poultry due to my grandfather being president of the New Hampshire Poultry Fanciers for many years. After his death in 2015 I stepped into a secretary/treasurer role for the NHPFA and I was elected to become the superintendent of the Poultry Barn at the Deerfield Fair, which I have enjoyed doing and look forward to doing for many years to come. In 2018 I was hired on by the American Bantam Association to become their new Sanction Coordinator. I held that role until the fall of 2019 when I had to step down due to a hectic schedule. In 2018 I joined the Dixie Classic as Show Secretary.
