About this project

Ostrich can save the world?

In today's world we are faced with many challenges.  We are starting to make changes, but we have still have more we can improve.

Here at Misty Morning Ranch we are trying to make a change. One that will help the environment, keep people healthy, and just happens to be quite delicious.  Improving sustainable agriculture and climate change is our passion here on the ranch. We need help from our backers to make our passion a reality!

Ostrich, really!? Yes really! Ostrich is a delicious, healthy red meat. Ostriches are also much healthier for the environment than other meat producing livestock.

 Ostriches also use less than 1/3 the water of cattle and produce only 8% of the green house gases. That's right, 70% LESS water and 92% LESS green house gases, using 98% LESS land, while still being incredibly healthy and delicious!

This is how ostrich can save the world.

You can help by showing your support and backing us while we back mother earth.

Misty Morning Ranch needs to expand. In order to be profitable and self sustaining we need to add more breeding pairs to our flock, construct incubation building and expand chick housing.

All our backers will be added to our email list and given first opportunity for meat every year!

Risks and challenges

Our potential risks are quite low. We have partnered with veteran ostrich farmers to avoid many pitfalls. From visiting farms and ranches in many to states to working with the local universities we have surrounded ourselves with a wealth of knowledge and experience.

All new breeding pairs have a guarantee of fertility.

All eggs are incubated by an ostrich farm with 20 years experience and raise chicks to 3 weeks for highest success rate.

We already have producing ostriches and eggs in the incubator for this season!
