Atlanta has long been known as a home for transplants: Folks from all over the world come here to find their place and make a life. That was also true for Big Lou, an emu that arrived in the city in 1994. After living nearly three decades in the Lake Claire Community Land Trust, the local celebrity passed away peacefully on July 28.
When Baker lost his job working with sheet metal, he and his wife, Deb, thought they might try making personal care products from the large supplies of emu oil still frozen (to this day) in storage at his parents’ farm. Thus was born Baker’s Emu Nest, which didn’t stay mom-and-pop for long.
