New Book, Tale of the Turkeys’ Detailed Tail, is a book inspired by an actual place. This book was written to bring attention to a little trading post that features handmade Native American art created by myself the author, Tyrese Gould Jacinto.
We have a small ranch and farm in South New Jersey, located just south of Bridgeton. Bridgeton is the home town of the local Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Tribe. In fact, the home of the trading post, which is named Turkey Tale Trading Post, is just 3 miles away from the Cohansick Tribal Grounds owned and operated by the tribe.
We chose to remain in this area because of the rich heritage, green open space and beautiful seasons that we all enjoy. Not only is there wildlife and nature, but the tribal families still reside in abundance in this area.
We travel to the local markets, events and towns and always see someone familiar. What a wonderful way to exist. Some from the outside may see crumbling structures, however, we see rich history and culture that is beaming with excitement and joy.
Some of the items offered at the trading post are shell pouches, pine needle basketry, leather pouches, gourd art and raw materials to try it for yourself.
The farm features animals such as cows, goats, sheep, alpacas, dogs, cats, and birds. A small income is generated by the sale of guinea hens from the spring to late summer. The farm produces about 1000 guineas yearly for sale to local individuals for tick and bug control.
Tale of the Turkeys’ Detail Tail is a fun and creative way to promote the local trading post.
