.Harry House began raising chickens as a 4H kid in Georgia.  After many years away from the hobby, he started his flock in Strawberry Plains.  His first chicks arrived via mail almost 8 years ago.  Harry now focuses on heritage breeds including Orpingtons, Welsummers, WFBS, Barnevelders, and Silver Campines.  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 for the last 5 years.  They have a flock of about 250 chickens.

hope HOLT- show secretaryHope Holt

I am a wife of almost 20 years married to my best friend Jim. Mom of 2 beautiful girls, 19 year old Stephanie and 10 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 along with Patti Brashear and have been asked to resume this role again which I am excited for and am thoroughly enjoying. .
