Skeeter Coverdale

by thecustomhouse

Inspiration from my favorite restaurant in Phoenix, The Farm at South Mountain:

“In keeping with the early philosophy, the ten acres just south of Southern and 32nd Street was planted with 100 pecan trees, and for over 40 years was nurtured by a retired cattleman by the name of Skeeter Coverdale. Ultimately Skeeter determined it was too much work to care for the trees and harvest the 5,000 pounds of nuts each year. He wanted to move to Punkin Center where he could buy a trailer, ‘drink beer, swat flies, and tell lies’ – so he did!”
