Kelis is known for bringing the boys to the yard, but now she has them coming to her farm as well. 

The “Bossy” singer and passionate chef reportedly announced in a podcast that she has bought a farm in order to take her passion for food and culinary brand to the next level.

“In this past year I’ve kinda felt like I need a restaurant,” said Kelis on The Founder Hour podcast. “I need a space where I can actually be creative and I can do this on a daily basis.” 

The singer expressed how important cooking has become to her and how she discovered a way to set herself apart from other chefs.

“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,” Kelis added. “We started looking for a farm. We found a property and we’re going to start to grow everything.”

“I would love to do the show but … I cook at my leisure right now and I remember when I graduated from culinary school and when I was working on a line at a restaurant I was so fast because I was seasoned to be that way,” Kelis said, reminiscing about her time working in a commercial kitchen in 2008. “I’m not as fast as I was back then. I would need to get back into that frame of mind.”
