Three simple words that say so much, especially in a day and age that knowing where our food comes from is as important as what we eat!
Now 18 months in the making, the sustainability project, known as Rising Kale Farms is continuing to make its mark on the local community in so many ways…thanks to you!
At an all time high head count of 108, the chicken population at the farm is testimony that if treated humanly, and with concern…a chicken can live a healthy, vibrant life.
Our hens are protected from territorial preditors such as hawks and raccoons in condo-style dual barns, with 24 hour accessibility to the outdoors, fresh air and sunshine. Misters overhead if they get too hot in this Texas heat, and indoor-outdoor fans keep a cool breeze blowing ’round the clock.
They are fed a diet rich in nutrients to include fresh seasonal greens and root crops grown especially for them. In addition, the girls who rule the roost, keep entertained for hours with things like the bouncing cabbage and the Summertime favorite, the ice block challenge, a big mixing bowl mold that we fill with whole kernal corn, hominy, fruit cocktail or green beans. We add water and then freeze it. The girls and the few roosters we have love to peck away until they reach the morsels hidden within the ice. Plus, it keeps them cool during these seaonably high temperatures.
At Rising Kale Farms, we believe the combination of environment, food and diverse recreation contribute to the best organic eggs ever.
We hope that you’ll join us in our mission to take back control of what we eat, by knowing where our food comes from and who we buy it from.
Simply said, know your farmer!
