Three hundred chickens make up most of the work and the soundtrack at Happy Wife Acres, a farm in Fairborn owned by Wright State University alumni John and Andrea Hancock.
The small farm offers customers fruit, vegetables and poultry along with an education in homesteading.
“We wanted to teach others about homesteading being sustainable and self-sufficient,” said John Hancock.
Since mid-March, Happy Wife Acres has donated 50 dozen eggs to the Fairborn FISH Food Pantry to provide to clients, whom the pantry calls “neighbors.”
“We were so excited the day they walked through the doors,” said Jane Doorley, a retired Wright State professor who manages the pantry.
Doorley said the donations from Happy Wife Acres allow the pantry to distribute easy-to-cook, high-quality protein to neighbors.
