Episode 5: Kenya Abraham

HOBBY FARMS PRESENTS: GROWING GOOD

Show host Lisa Munniksma talks with SLAK Market Farm’s Kenya Abraham, who just happens to be Lisa’s raw milk herdshare owner in Lexington, Kentucky. Listen in to hear about the journey that took Kenya from urban entrepreneur in Ohio to farmer in Kentucky. Hear about her creative land lease and land sharing arrangements, the ins and outs of a raw milk and halal meat herdshare, how everyone in the family plays a role on the farm, and the community at the heart of the work Kenya does. Kenya also talks about how she connects kids with the land through her Stack a Story Bookshop storybook writing and farmstay nonprofit. Be sure to listen to the end to hear about how Kenya looks to her animals to destress and why she gets up at 4 or 5 am. (Spoiler alert: It isn’t to milk the cows.)
