Water Boy Farms was developed in 2014 by Rick Wells at his home as an extension of Harvest Seasonal Kitchen to establish connections for how and where our food is grown.
waterboy(noun): someone who works in the field, serves others.
Water Boy Farms was named after the waterboy. Rick’s father was a State Champion Football coach in Colorado who returned to coach in his hometown of Antlers, Oklahoma and believed the waterboy is just as important as the star quarterback and exemplifies servitude.
Water Boy is worked by our employees within our company and allows seasonal growth and organic farming practices. Over time we have developed Water Boy Farms to provide microgreens, honey, seasonal produce, and flowers for our restaurants. All eligible kitchen waste is taken to the farm and composed for the garden.
We continue to prosper from our farm not only organic produce but also in education to be better stewards of the land. What we learn from the farm allows us to give back through education and connection with our community.
