By Rubén Morales Iglesias: If you are looking for a unique and delicious breakfast experience, you might want to try an ostrich egg at The Volstruis Restaurant at Ranch Craft’s Eco Park in Georgeville, Cayo District. This is a farm and restaurant owned by Nefretery Nancy Marin, who also makes crafts and jewelry from the ostrich egg shells. She says that ostrich eggs that weigh about 2.5 pounds are buttery, filling, and nutritious.

Ranch Craft’s The Volstruis Restaurant serves ostrich egg breakfasts or brunches for groups of up to 13 people.

“We serve our in-house sausages, grilled veggies, our in-house made herbal bread, hummus, and labney, a cream cheese that we make on the farm,” Marin told Breaking Belize News.

Marin, who has to overcome a lot of obstacles to establish her ostrich farm, recently invited Home Affairs Minister Kareem Musa and some media representatives to sample the ostrich egg breakfast, and they were impressed by the taste and quality. She says that ostrich eggs are rare and expensive in other countries, but she is keeping the price affordable in Belize.

“Because we can’t divide the egg, we can’t just serve a little bit of egg, we have to sell it as a package deal,” Marin said.

“So, we’re charging $500 for a meal that can feed about 13 people. You can just get your group together, family and friends. We’re estimating around between $45 to $50 per person depending on the size of your group.”

“If you divide it per person it’s not that expensive. We’re actually keeping the price down compared to other countries around us that have it.”

Though the eggs weigh approximately 2.5 pounds, Marin said she has a much bigger egg.

“We have the biggest that that I have seen in this region right now, that we just got this week. I think it’s close to 4 pounds,” Marin said.

Apart from the ostrich egg breakfast or brunch,  for Valentine’s Day, The Volstruis Restaurant is offering a special dinner of ostrich kaftas, which Marin said is a Lebanese plate of grilled ostrich meat, and Belizean wines.

Guests can also paint the ostrich shells as a souvenir.

At present, Marin has four ostriches on her farm, two breeding pairs, and is working on expanding her business in the future.
