Jesse Duke lived on the Duke Family farm with his wife. Over time they took in four of their nephews; Luke, Vance, Coy, and Bo Duke as well as one niece, Daisy Duke. Another nephew Jeb Stuart Duke had also spent a period on the farm. At some point, Jesse Duke's wife passed, leaving him with the kids.

History

Sometime before 1976, Vance and Coy left the farm.

Sometime after 1985, Bo, Luke, and Daisy Duke all left the farm [4] Jesse continued to maintain the farm in their absence.

In 1997 Bo, Luke, and Daisy returned to the farm after being away. In the period of time since they were gone the farm house had been renovated, replacing the one story house with a two story house. The reason for this is never explained. [5]

The Duke Family Kitchen serves as both a kitchen and a dinning room.

The kitchen has cream colored wall paper with blue/green curtains on the windows. There are two windows and two doors, one to go to the front porch and one to go to the back porch. To the back of the kitchen is the stove, fridge, and a cupboard. On the front side of the kitchen is the sink, furnace and a water heater. There is a dish rack next to the sink with cupboards above it where dishes are stored. Above the doorway into the living room is a shot gun.

Hanging on the wall near the sink is the family calendar. Beside the door is a nail where Jesse hangs his red cap. When the cap is not there, sometimes keys are stored on the nail.

In the center of the kitchen is the family table. It usually has some kind of table cloth on it with some type of food item and four wooden chairs.

Jesse keeps a small box hidden near the front door to serve as the 'bank' [7] He also keeps a small tin hidden on top of the cupboard where he stores items that he wishes to keep safe.
