Black Hills Poultry Society

    For many area gardeners having a garden and having a flock of chickens seems natural. We are pleased to have the activities of the recently formed Black Hills Poultry Society posted on www.BlackHillsGarden. You will find here a calendar of upcoming events, perhaps some photos of folks and their favorite birds along with all the good reasons that gardens and chickens seem to go together (not to mention their delicious eggs!)

The mission of the society is to promote the keeping, breeding and exhibition of poultry of all kinds and to provide guidance and information from the wealth of experience from the most accomplished members.

The goal is to provide a fun, friendly atmosphere and encourage people of all ages to becomes involved with all breeds of poultry.

The group meets the third Friday of every month 6:30 p.m. at the West River Electric Association community meeting room. 

Persons who might be interested in keeping small flocks of chickens are  welcome to contact the society members at the information given below.

Contacts for the Black Hills Poultry Society are: blackhillspoultry@gmail.com and on Facebook as Black Hills Poultry Society or at 605-923-2366.

The 8 Seeds That Can Store At Least 5 Years


While storage methods have a big impact on seed longevity, the type of cultivar also makes a difference. Some of the longest-lasting seeds are members of the cabbage family (Brassicaceae), but there are eight different types of vegetable seeds that will remain viable for about five years, even if not frozen:

  • Broccoli
  • Cabbage
  • Cauliflower
  • Cucumber
  • Muskmelons
  • Spinach
  • Radishes
  • Lettuce
