Husband and Wife duo making strides in the Farming Industry

by Taryn St.Louis, July 20, 2020

The effects of covid-19 can be felt worldwide. Most persons who were previously employed and living comfortably have been thrust into financial uncertainty. The same can be said for businesses. The owners of both large and small enterprises have had to find creative ways to keep their businesses afloat. Some have been successful, others not so much, and the remainder have had to deviate to new ventures in order to keep food on their tables and their bills paid. This husband and wife team have taken the necessary initiative and deviated into the farming business.

Meet the Huntes

Marlon and Tavia Hunte reside in Swetes Village on the beautiful island of Antigua with their two children, Tequon, age 21 Serenity, age 12. This married couple are both seasoned innovators; Marlon is an AC Technician, and Tavia is a Performing Arts Lecturer at the Antigua State College. She is also renowned on the island as the owner/director of the Shiva School of Dance. Their businesses both took financial hits when covid-19 struck the island in March 2020. Marlon, as the head of his household, saw the impact this could have on his family and quickly began the process of educating his wife on the art of backyard gardening. This did not progress well for Tavia, and they both soon realized she just wasn’t cut out for watering plants.

A New Plan

After realizing that backyard gardening may not be the ideal, Marlon came up with a new plan – A Chicken Farm. Although she was skeptical at first, Tavia decided to place her trust in their team and through productive communication, they both executed the plan successfully. Hunte Chicken Farm was established and they both may just have found the winning formula for business.

It’s Hard Work, But Worth It

“The labor of killing and cleaning chickens requires early morning preparations and being on your feet literally the entire day.” According to Tavia, they both have had experience in raising and preparing poultry for their own family events, but entering the chicken farming business definitely required detailed execution. Tavia therefore conducted her own analyses and research to ensure the business would be viable. As an added bonus, they were both successful in the subject area of Agricultural Sciences in Secondary school, and this aided them both in developing a top notch, innovative process to raising a high-quality product for distribution.

“Our mission is to provide a fresh a product that conveys our care and love for community as well as create a thriving industry to help build and sustain our local economy”.

Fresh, Smoked or Seasoned!

At Hunte Chicken Farm, you can have your poultry prepared your way.

  • Fresh: So that you can season and prepare just the way you like it.
  • Seasoned: Skillfully seasoned with their very own blend of savory herbs and spices, (NO MSG) and ready to cook!
  • Smoked: Cooked in a specially designed smoker oven prepared with their our own blend of herbs and spices, (NO MSG)… and topped off with their very own Hunte’s Farm Barbecue Sauce made from scratch no PRESERVATIVES!

Customers must place their orders in advance. They however receive a call from the farm before distribution, for updating purposes. Any other necessary details are also discussed in advance, inclusive of delivery/collection details and costs. For your convenience, Hunte’s chicken is now available for delivery on the packed app!

The way forward

Marlon and Tavia’s poultry farm continues to grow by leaps and bounds despite the odds. Their family unit IS their team, but they have welcomed overwhelming support from friends and well-wishers. According to Tavia, they did their first distribution of poultry on the last weekend in May and were sold out by the Sunday with little advertising. They are now set to triple their production batch as they have been receiving lots of interest from new customers. Their vision is to expand, so they have hopes of receiving assistance in acquiring lands (preferably government allocated) for lease so that increased technical infrastructure can be put in place.

“A business is about transformation, once you are filling a need you are making an impact and that makes all the difference in how you prepare and distribute your product its about energy. It’s about love.”

Solid Business Advice

This team stands firm in the belief that it is time for black owned businesses to unlearn many of the perceptions and misconceptions that have caused us not to advance economically. Long term benefits, including legacy building and generational wealth should be the main goals. They believe more focus should be placed on investments, and the stronghold of consumerism within our communities needs to be addressed.

Coming together to fight the many negative habits that have held us back for generations requires commitment. Commitment to ourselves, commitment to our families and commitment to future generations whom we have not yet met. Marlon and Tavia Hunte are doing their part to ensure that a new legacy is built. With their passion and perseverance, their business can only progress to unimaginable heights as they stand strong in their motto, “From our farm, to your hands.”
