Kelis buys farm to expand her food empire
Kelis’ slow take over of the food world just got a big boost.
The “Bossy” singer and chef, 38, announced in the latest podcast for “The Founder Hour” that she’s purchased a farm to push her brand forward.
“In this past year I’ve kinda felt like I need a restaurant,” she started. “I need a space where I can actually be creative and I can do this on a daily basis. That being really necessary for me. I decided yeah, well how do I do that in staying with who I am and in the realm of control that I like to have. So I felt like, you know what, let’s do a farm. We started looking for a farm. We found a property. And we’re going to start to grow everything.”
Kelis plans to grow her own produce and make her own milk, cheese, and butter.
Her ascent to the top of the food chain began in 2008 when she graduated from Le Cordon Bleu. Years later she launched Bounty & Full, a line of sauces. In 2015 she released her first cookbook, “My Life on a Plate,” telling Page Six she’d love to compete on “Iron Chef” one day and maybe cook for Jesus, too.
