Willie spent his childhood roaming through the woods of Eastern Kentucky behind his house for hours. Not sure whose property he was on...but that's beside the point. We all love the forests, mounds, (and bigfoots) of Appalachia. When you shop with us just know your dollars allow us to contribute every month to local conservation groups that protect the woods and ancient structures of Southern Ohio and Kentucky.
