The first employee and president of Alcove Farms, Kerry Ritchie began a healthy lifestyle journey which led to pursuing a passion in farming.
The new, healthier lifestyle began when Kerry and his wife, Stephanie, decided to see a natural holistic doctor. They began to seek out ways to find more natural foods. Soon after the Ritchie family began their journey, the Lord led Rick Betenbough, co-founder of Betenbough Homes and board member, to appoint Kerry for Alcove Farms.
Kerry's favorite thing about chickens, is watching them do all they were created to do, such as, scratch, forage and come alive in their personalities. His favorite way to eat his eggs is over-easy.
Shawn was born and raised in Lubbock, Texas. He first joined the Betenbough Homes family as a member of the detail team, and was soon recruited to help run the farm. Shawn enjoys caring for our lovely ladies, and his favorite thing about chickens is their curiosity.
More importantly, when asked how he likes his eggs – he enjoys them with bacon, toast and a little bit of cheese on top!
