Meet Kate started its own poultry farm with a thousand chickens, in February 2012. The eggs the hens lay are sold and the profit is used to pay for part of our educational projects. In late 2012, Meet Kate received funding from Achmea Foundation. Due to the success of the farm so far, we decided to use this opportunity to expand the poultry farm to four thousand chickens. The collaboration with a local poultry farmer is going well and everything is well monitored. We are delighted with this, especially since a remarkably low number of chicks died in infancy. This is exceptional considering the weather conditions and because it is our first venture into poultry farming.
