The dairy farm, sits on a 30 acres vast Tumoi farm. Here is is his farming story as was first published by Standard Media’s Smart Harvest:

Ruto's farm is a home for 90 mature cows, few bulls and 63 heifers. Ruto said that each cow usually produces about 25 to 40 litres of milk per session.

Ruto says that they always mix hay with pineapples, to give the hay a good taste.In addition to this, he has a cooling unit, that is estimated to be worth 5 million. He also said that very soon, he will start producing yoghurt and ghee, but currently the milk is taken to cooperative creameries. The former governor hopes to increase his herd to 300 dairy cows. He also revealed that, his love for cattle keeping was influenced by his late father Paul Tirop.

The other amazing thing about his cows is that, they don't drink cold water, he has a biogas plant that warm the water for consumption. The gas is also useful for cooking and it had helped him to save more. Currently he spents most of his time in his farm and politics is something he will think about when it reaches 2022.
