South Carolina is home to one of the largest quail farming operations in the country. Manchester Farms grows poultry on land across South Carolina, processing them in Hopkins outside of Columbia. The company was started on two acres outside of Sumter by Janet and Bill Odom, a Clemson grad with a poultry science degree. Chefs around town use Manchester for their high-end products like quail eggs, but humble home cooks can find a simple bone-in quail. They sell retail at grocery stores and via mail order on their website. A tray of 15 quail eggs will run you $4.25, or you can splurge for 180 eggs for $50. They also have European-style deboned quail that comes natural or marinated in a simple brine.
