Founder of SPN-USA

Front Back

Jim loves people and he is passionate about poultry! For the past 35 years, he has raised over 50 breeds and varieties of standard-bred poultry (that includes chickens, ducks, geese and turkeys). Jim has been teaching poultry field days and workshops for the equal amount of time throughout the United States and in other countries as well. In 1994, he received his poultry judging license from the American Poultry Association; which has taken  him to 35 plus states, Canada as well as Australia to judge standard-bred poultry. He is a passionate, effective communicator who loves poultry and loves to teach people about the available opportunities with standard poultry. He is one of the most requested workshop and keynote presenters in North America!

 

Adkin’s writings have included many articles for “Backyard Poultry,” “The Poultry Magazine,” “Poultry World” and “Poultry Press.” He is a regular blogger for “Mother Earth News and “Sustainable Poultry Network–USA,” and  he also provided some research and writings for the newly published book, “Storey’s guide to Raising Turkeys.”

 

Jim started his poultry interest as a young man who grew up in 4-H, raising and exhibiting poultry in southwest Washington State. For several years he worked in the commercial turkey industry, supervising several ranches that raised over 450,000 turkeys, annually. Because of the popular demand for the old heirloom breeds of Standard-Bred poultry, he founded the Sustainable Poultry Network–USA in 2010. Adkin’s continues to travel the world speaking, instructing, coaching and mentoring poultry enthusiasts.
