Lisa Van Horn

@ Peninsula Poultry Breeders Association

While Lisa’s first backyard flock was acquired during her college days in a co-housing community, she did not become a serious student of poultry breeding and genetics until retirement. Lisa quickly became interested in preservation of heritage breeds, and realized that these original homestead birds were at risk unless they became more integral to a healthy food system. Her desire to provide families with an alternative local supply for healthy, productive chickens led to her interest in helping found Peninsula Poultry Breeders. Lisa has a background in biological sciences and an interest in poultry genetics.
