State Game Farms

At one time or another in the 20th century, virtually all States in the U.S. had state game farms run by the State Fish and Game agency (or whatever the relevant agency was called). The express purpose of the game farms was to raise game birds for release to provide hunting opportunities. Some of the State game farms are still in existence.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources provides a wonderful history of the Wisconsin Experimental Game and Fur Farm, which was established in 1928, was once the “largest in the country,” and is still going strong.
