The Organic Ololo Farm
During your Ololo experience visit our farm which supplies our wonderful in-house restaurant, the ‘Kitchen at Ololo’, with fresh produce daily.
Most of what appears on your plate comes directly from our thriving vegetable gardens, mushroom house and ever-expanding farm orchard. We produce fresh eggs and rear all the chicken as well as duck, enjoyed in your delicious meals. Ololo Farm is now selling our duck, chicken meat and eggs commercially, into the Nairobi market.
Even the milk on your table is sourced from Ololo Farm's small dairy herd and is pasteurised and made into our delicious, fresh yoghurts and ice creams.
Our chefs and kitchen hands - Kyeti, Nicholas, George , Maria and Shukri all love to experiment with the our seasonal produce, fresh from paddock to plate!
Ololo is proud of it’s sustainable farming techniques, as well as our water recycling and composting systems. This includes the production of our natural fertiliser “Ololo Worm Tea” through worm composting. 100% of kitchen and food waste is either fed to the Ololo chickens or composted for use in the gardens. Our water comes from our bore hole which we share with the local community, as well as filtered for guest’s drinking. A ‘grey water’ recycling and filtration unit treats all waste water that is then used in the Ololo gardens. The Ololo farm has recently been granted our organic status in April 2020 through Kenya Organic Agriculture Network (KOAN).
