A grandniece of Havilah Babcock- the poet laureate to the uplands, Tucker’s artistic talents are showcased on the farmhouse walls in the form of paintings of sporting dogs. With a true appreciation for Virginia cooking in style and flavor, she is often found whipping up a quick dish, while entertaining in a true Southern manner. A Lynchburg native and James Madison University graduate, she tirelessly advocates for the inclusion of women and children into the traditional shooting sports. Tucker and Cassel have 4 children who are learning the joys of the outdoor life that comes with the farm.

A Shenandoah Valley native, Darin and his Vizslas have long called Richmond home. Darin’s passion for good dogs developed while attending 14 Rick Smith Seminars including two Advanced Academies. Before joining us, he guided at Blandfield Plantation for eight seasons. He holds an annual North Dakota Bird Dog Camp where he conditions and evaluates our dogs for the upcoming season.
When Hilton is off to shoot, you never know if it is with a cinematic camera or with his vintage Browning A-16. Owner of Richmond based Love Affair Creative, he understands the tangibles and the emotion of stolen moments in the field. An outdoorsman, enigma, and a childhood friend to the Adamson family, he is the perfect person to tell our story and help build the experience. We are proud that
he calls our ground home.
