Delta Waterfowl is pleased to announce its new partnership with Rocky Mount, North Carolina-based Original Log Cabin Homes as The Official Log Home Of Delta Waterfowl.
Founded by New Yorker Tom Vesce in 1987, Original Log Cabin Homes combines tradition and cutting-edge technology to design and manufacture log cabins to suit any lifestyle.
“In 1973, Tom started one of the first log home companies when log home living became an industry in the United States. Tom sold out in the early 1980s and sub-sequently moved to North Carolina,” said Steve Brumfield, director of marketing for Original Log Cabin Homes. “He started up again in 1987, and we’re now selling and shipping homes worldwide, to over 80 countries.”
As part of the partnership, any Delta Waterfowl member who purchases a log home or cabin, the company will give back one percent of that sale to help fund Delta Waterfowl’s conservation programming. The partnership will also include a sportsman’s sweepstakes in 2010 in which a Delta Waterfowl member will have an opportunity to win an Original Log Cabin Home.
According to Brumfield, the company’s buffalo farm, located in Nashville, NC is recognized by the National Wildlife Federation as an official Certified Wildlife Habitat site that routinely attracts birds, butterflies, deer, fox, numerous bird species and other wild critters. In short, the site provides a great home for wildlife.
In that tradition, the employees of Log Cabin Homes with joint efforts of the local North Carolina Delta Waterfowl chapter will help make two lakes on the company’s property (commonly called Twin Lakes) more attractive to waterfowl, by erecting wood duck boxes and mallard hen houses, designed by Delta Waterfowl. These largely predator-proof artificial nesting structures have had great success attracting ducks, while also helping to increase the local breeding population.
“We’re hoping to create a better habitat for ducks,” said Brumfield. “That’s our goal.”
Original Log Cabin Homes also has a long history of working with the Boys and Girls Scouts and other groups like the Make-A-Wish Foundation that grant wishes for children with life-threatening illnesses, said Brumfield.
“We are very excited about our new partnership,” said Delta Senior Vice President John Devney. “Original Log Cabin Homes has a long history of environmental stewardship, and that will continue with our collaboration.”
