Katherine Strother, 2012-2013 Chair of the Goose Creek Association Board of Directors, presented the 2012 Golden Goose Award to Bill and Jeri Jackson, owners of Tri-County Feeds, Etc. (TCFE) located in Marshall, Virginia. The Golden Goose Award is given for going above and beyond to promote conservation and preservation. For the past six years it has been presented annually to deserving recipients in Fauquier and Loudoun counties.
Bill Jackson accepted the award on behalf of the Jacksons. Creekside, the home of Gregg Ryan, was the site of the award ceremony.
In January of 2011 TCFE, specializing in equine and equestrian products, partnered with McCauley Feeds to manufacture a high-quality, nutritious line of horse feeds in environmentally sound packaging. In addition, Bill and Jeri Jackson committed to donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of these feeds to the Goose Creek Association and the Piedmont Environmental Council.
“Often people doubt that they can make a difference—dismissing any effort as just a drop in the bucket. We saw the bigger picture—we saw all of those drops filling the bucket,” said Bill Jackson, president of TCFE. He continued, “In nine months we have sold 34,643 bags of our new feed in environmentally supportive packaging—that’s one big bucket—eliminating the same number of poly-woven bags that never biodegrade from the landfills.”
Complementing the new feed bags—TCFE proudly offers reusable totes for their customers. This continues TCFE’s commitment to protecting the environment. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the reusable totes goes to the Goose Creek Association and the Piedmont Environmental Council.
