Ahuva Gottdiener tends the chickens in her suburban homestead in Monsey, NY.

Some people in the suburbs put pools or fire pits in their backyards but a family in Monsey, NY has chickens, rabbits, garden beds and bee hives. It all gets screen time in the social media videos produced by the family matriarch, an Orthodox Jewish woman who has hundreds of thousands of followers on Instagram, Facebook and TikTok.

WBGO’s Jon Kalish dropped by to meet Ahuva Gottdiener and has this report.
