William Ruto's Sugoi home where he practices mixed farming

Outside of politics, Ruto manages a sizable farm in his small-town Sugoi residence. Ruto previously gave cameras access to his residence in 2014 while speaking with K24.

According to Ruto, he grew up about 10 kilometers away from the area he purchased and settled on.

"We sold chicken between KSh 11 and KSh 13, especially to long-distance truckers, and we used the money for our requirements," said Gideon. Most of my neighbors are people I know because I relocated to this area around 15 years ago," he said. Before he planted 150,000 saplings, the lawmaker pointed out that the property had only three trees on it when he first bought it.

Ruto displayed a cow herding stick that was given to him when he was 18 to demonstrate his engagement in the day-to-day operations of the farm. Ruto claimed that his wife Rachel purchased the contemporary chicken coop at their Sugoi residence from India.

He displayed an industrial-grade incubator for the eggs and stated, "My wife brought 5,000 chickens, so we also sell eggs." Ruto claimed that he will be selling eggs for at least KSh 1.5 million per day in 2021. The former Eldoret North MP also claimed that he grows maize for human use and to provide silage for cows and chickens. On the farm, he also grows a variety of fruits, such as mangoes and avocados, and he raises bees in about 100 hives.
