One fine day in the year of 2015 Chris and Ryan Kilbride, the founders of Apalachee Farms, decided to follow their hearts and go into the farming business. The two, along with HGTV Pro Cathy, searched far and wide and finally found the right place for the farm, just 20 minutes from the Capitol building east on Apalachee PKWY. Then expert brewer and sauerkraut master Jeff moved down to FL and the team was complete. Since then it's been quite the journey, raising 60 chickens and refining our system to deter tenacious predators, planning and planting the beginnings of our food forest/u-pick orchard, and embarking to transform our depleted tired soil into a system teeming with life and fertility.
Our farm uses organic methods and elements of permaculture at every possible opportunity. We also dabble in aquaponics and hugelkultur.
