CFO and Co-Owner

Haley Farms, Inc.

Kim was born in Brownwood, TX but has lived in California since the age of 2. Her dad, Jim Haley helped developed her passion for poultry, as she grew up around chickens and turkeys her whole life. After leaving Veterinary Service, Inc. in 1995, she went to work in the family business, Haley Farms, Inc. It is a 3-generation, family run chicken farm, managed by Kim and brother Daniel. She is the CFO and part owner. Her daughter Katie is an Administrative Assistant. Haley Farms, Inc sells live, brown feathered chickens for meat in Asian communities in California.

 

In 2002, she was appointed to the Western Poultry Scholarship & Research Foundation as a Trustee and currently serves as President. The foundation gives out scholarships to students taking poultry classes at western states universities. As a strong supporter of Agriculture, she is the Chairperson for Modesto City Schools Ag Advisory Committee and a member of the Modesto Junior College Ag Advisory Committee, striving to better educate our students on agriculture and Career Tech Education. Serving as treasurer on the National Ag Science Center for several years has been so fulfilling in seeing the Ag Mobile Classroom educate so many students. She hopes to help in a small way through her work on the board with United Way.

They have supported so many homeless and less fortunate over the years.

 

Kim and her husband Eddie have 3 grown children and 4 grandsons. Spending time with her grandsons is one of her most favorite things to do. She loves to watch the Los Angeles Angels play baseball. Another of her favorite things is singing Alto with the Women’s 4-part A Capella Chorus in Ripon, Sweet Harmony. She loves playing piano whenever possible and someday teaching her grandsons. Kim and her husband love going to Walla Walla, WA to visit actor Stephen Amell’s Nocking Point Wine tasting room. Spending time at the lake or the ocean is such a pleasure especially when her family is there.

Kim is an ALF Great Valley Class IX Senior Fellow.
