About us

What would you do when a hobby generates income? 
Save it for white beaches and a piña coladas….

“On second thought, maybe we wont keep this for ourselves,” say the founders Marleen en Jan Peter Kruiger.
We have been happily married for over 35 years and we make enough to support our needs.

We are greatly impressed by the love of Jesus Christ, and like him, wont accept the sometimes grim situations in Africa.
It is our humble vision to do something very concrete on a small scale.
How it all started
We discovered our fascination for the hatching eggs and raising the chicks years ago. At one moment in time, we accumulated quite a lot of qualis, and we discovered interest in the quail egg. From this moment forward, the quails and their eggs produced income. Also at this time, we read a research paper from the Makerere university of Kampala in Uganda. It Concluded that quails could very well be a very healthy source of nurturing for families. Especially because of the lack of protein which is a big problem in most of Africa. As of 2011, Ugandese friends have started hatching and breeding quail eggs and chicks in the beautifull African Continent.
