5 Celebrities Who Spend Their Downtime On Their Farm

Celebrities are often viewed as having a glamorous life filled with luxury cars, expensive clothes, and more. However, there are some celebs who take a break from their famed pursuits for a nice, simple life on a farm. Serena Williams recently did an interview with CBS Mornings’ Gayle King where she opened up about retirement and farm life with her family. Later in the interview, Serena and her husband Alexis Ohanian gave Gayle a tour of her sprawling farm filled with animal and plant life. Discovering that the legendary tennis champ lived on a farm, I was intrigued to know what other fabulous stars were a part of the farm life, so I compiled a list.

Here are other celebs who live on a farm.

Serena Williams

Serena grows fruits and vegetables and raises chickens at her South Florida farm. She also has a steer and a miniature horse that her daughter Olympia named Daisy.

Keshia Knight Pulliam

Actress Keshia Knight Pulliam often shares adorable clips of herself with her husband actor Brad James and daughter taking care of their goats, chickens, and other farm animals at their home.

Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey reportedly has two farms. Her Hawaii home’s farm is where she grows food such as fruits, vegetables, and herbs. And in 2016, she bought an equestrian farm in California for a reported $29 million.

Dreka Gates

Dreka Gates and her husband rapper Kevin Gates own a farm together and the influencer often documents farm life on her YouTube channel.


The singer-turned-chef owns a sprawling farm reportedly two hours outside of Los Angeles where she grows her own food and raises animals such as sheep, goats cows.

Three Influencers Show Off Their 2022 Holiday Hair Looks Using Their SheaMoisture Faves

This post is in partnership with SheaMoisture.

For Black women, there’s one compliment that will boost our confidence like none other: “Come through hair!” You know the vibe! Walking into a room with folks acknowledging that your hair is laid for the gawds, and the effort that it took to get it there, is a top five feeling. And with the holiday season just weeks away, you’ll be hearing that quite often. Between Thanksgiving gatherings with the family, Friendsgiving, company parties, and Christmas get-togethers, the opportunities to let your hair show up and show out aren’t too far away.

Apart from the holiday stuntin’, the end-of-year slow down is also the perfect opportunity to reevaluate the year your hair has had. Whether you kept it cute with protective braids, went big with blowouts, or let loose with textured twist-outs, this is the perfect time to give your hair the gift of TLC - tender lovin’ curls. Like the weather, our hair goes through seasons and has different needs depending on what we’ve put it through. Perhaps the transition into fall/winter has left your curls a bit parched and in need of some serious hydration. Or maybe your strands could use some restorative conditioning after taking it down from a convenient protective style. No matter what category you fall into, SheaMoisture has hundreds of ways that you can clean, treat and refresh your hair for a healthy shine that will bring you into the new year right. Bring your curls back to life with the nourishing and fragrant Coconut & Hibiscus line. Boosted with natural ingredients such as coconut oil, neem oil, carrot oil, and shea butter, this line is the antidote to reviving thirsty, dehydrated hair. Even better - with SheaMoisture’s custom quiz, you can get a hair analysis that will lead you to the right products for your hair needs. Say hello to sleek edges, and moisturized, stronger strands.

In need of a little hair-spiration? We got you covered! xoNecole and SheaMoisture have teamed up with three natural hair influencers to debut their holiday hair looks. Meet Ambrosia Malbrough, Jasmin Moses, and Daye Covington - beauty bawses who’ve created some incredible holiday looks that are stylish and easy to achieve. They also gave us the scoop on the SheaMoisture products they’re loving right now, as well as their 2023 hair goals.

Ladies, This Is How To Date Smart Instead Of Hard

While recently talking to a couple of early 30-something never-been-married-before women about how much they want to settle down, and yet, at the same time, they’ve gotten to the point where they almost loathe the thought of dating, I got inspired to write this article.
