Chickens Roost at Whisper Creek Farm


Living at a luxury resort would be a dream come true for many, and for 20 lucky chickens that dream is now a reality.  On November 18, Whisper Creek Farm welcomed its very first flock from Lake Meadow Naturals to their very own coop at Grande Lakes Orlando. On hand to welcome the girls (and farmer Dale Volkert) were Chef Melissa Kelly of Primo and Chef Chris Brown of JW Marriott Grande Lakes (pictured above). Primo and the resort’s pastry shop will make use of the eggs until the Spring 2015 opening of Whisper Creek Farm: The Kitchen, at which time the flock is expected to increase to 50 to keep up with demand for Primo and The Kitchen.  Tours of the farm — and the new coop — will also resume in Spring.
