Misty Morning Ostrich Ranch

2021, North Carolina

What a delight to awaken to the sounds of a rooster heralding the morning, the sight of horses grazing outside our camper, and memories of last night’s experience of helping candle and place ostrich eggs into the incubator as well as getting up close and personal with individual adult ostrich. Yes! Through our Harvest Hosts membership, we visited what seems to be the only ostrich ranch in the Harvest Hosts system. It certainly has been a most unique experience for us. A few years ago Ryan & Gaby went in search of a better life beyond Los Angeles never dreaming that the quest would lead them to raising ostrich and educating the public on the nutritional and ecologic value of these huge birds as a food source. We’re leaving Misty Morning Ostrich Ranch in Robbins, North Carolina with a freezer full of ostrich steaks and a desire to return for one of their events.

    They raise them to be eaten?! Oh, my! I don’t think I’ve ever been somewhere that serves ostrich.

    I love ostrich, very tender red meat. Excellent cooked rare. I first tried it on a visit to South Africa.

      Gaby did tell us to cook it rare. And Ryan told us about the huge ostrich ranches in South Africa.

For our first adventure together on the Emerald Isle, we walked the streets of Cobh, County Cork, explored St Colman’s Cathedral, and visited the Cobh Heritage Center.
