Kirk Country Farm is located in Arlington, Tn. I remember when owner, Lisa Kirk came to the Cooper Young Farmers Market for the first time as a customer. She has such a wonderful personality and I was glad to meet her. She introduced herself and we got to talking about farming (as I have a farm as well with my husband, Cris) and we both raise hens for eggs. She beamed when talking about her "girls" .... the hens of course. It is obvious she loves raising hens and they are lucky to have her as their momma.
What is so interesting is that while Kirk Farm's hens spend their days outside in the sun foraging for most of their diet, in the evenings they go back to their hen house which is a SCHOOL BUS! Lisa's husband bought a school bus and turned it into a hen house. To move the hens to fresh pasture, Lisa just hops in the driver's seat and drives her girls to a new spot.
Lisa joined our market this Winter and will be staying on for the Spring/Summer market. Stop by and say hello and try some of her school bus hen eggs.
