THIS IS A RARE CHANCE TO GET OUR GOLDEN YELLOW SUMMER SQUASH

Come by and say hello when you see the OPEN sign.  We are open most weekends and an occasional day during the week.  We have baby chicks and ducklings that were born right here on the ranch!!


CONVENIENT DRIVE THRU - PESTICIDE FREE - ORGANIC CERT NEXT!


The chicks mom's have also been born on the ranch - generations of California home grown (not from mail order or from a feed store which orders them from "chicken mills" (like puppy mills) and ships them across country!!)These are real free range, organic chickens folks!  They are our pest control on our veggies!

PLANTING SEASON:  We have planted from seed, our squash, zucchini, bok-choy, arugula, beets, cantaloupe and herbs.  We have planted flowers for the bees, lavender and rosemary.  We will plant pumpkins and butternut squash for fall.


HONEY:  We have honey!  Available at the farm stand starting August 5th! 


We have 8oz, 12oz and 16oz/1lb BPA free squeeze bottles.  The price is $1 per oz so a pound of honey is $16.

The cool thing is that you get to meet the beekeepers in person AND they can point to the hive and show you exactly where the honey came from.  It's not a "blend" of hives - each bottle is from one of the 3 hives we have in the front of the ranch!


We have about 80 hives in the back acres of the property - these are owned by a pollinator beekeeper that provides pollination to the local farmers. We help store these hives in the winter, and then they go to pollinate almonds, cherry and fruit orchards around the area.  


The 3 hives that we own are strictly for honey production and local pollination - not commercial and they stay on the property year round.  We have names for each hive:  The Honey Hen, Angry Rooster, and Disco Bay Gold.  These names reflect in our labels (see "bit of honey" page)


See our "bit of honey" page for more info and on our program "Bee Lives Matter" designed to include you.

We are building and adding to our website as our veggies grow.  Located in the little niche farming area of Brentwood/Discovery Bay, California.  Part of the greater San Francisco Bay Area. Here you will find a smaller, rich-fertile land, and farming community. Brentwood is notoriously noted for producing most of California's almond crops. At Loose Rooster Ranch, we take advantage of that fertile growing soil, and grow incredibly amazing tasting arugula, bok-choy, all different types of squash, zucchini, beets, kale, peppers and spinach.  We started from scratch in 2014, on land that had not been cultivated in a decade or more. 


In the first two years we struggled with success and failure to see what would grow.  The soil which we have conditioned and now rich in nutrients, bugs and natural fertilizer (from our horses, chickens and composts), we are excited to be growing what the soil produces and to be adding plants and trees monthly to our 5 acre ranch.


Our birds:  We have bred a very hearty variety of chickens that are a cross between Buff Orphingtons, Leghorns, and American Game Birds, that will produce medium sized eggs for years. These hens are native to California, not from mail order or feed stores.  


These birds are very tolerant to disease, hot dry temps, and freezing cold snowy weather.  In fact we had a 12 year old rooster, named Sweet Pea - the Grand Daddy to them all!  We lost him last year, but he would crow every morning and could be found nestled in with his two girls, in our front acre.  His son, Pretty Boy has now replaced him, as our mascot, as he keeps up the family business


We have six horses of various breed and in various stages of training.  Some have shown in the California State Horseman's Association circuit shows, and some have been shown at the Reno Livestock center!  Participants in the Mustang Makeover in Reno too!  They are part of our life and our business.  


We have three neutered goats,  which we use for weed abatement, and they are fun to watch.  One we have hired as our 'guard goat' and as a  warning to strangers, he will defend the property!  He loves carrots as payment.


We now have two medium sized ranch dogs. Both rescued.  Chippewa or "Chip" for short: cute-as-a-button, border/terrier about a year and a half old. Aria: A sweet, quiet, border collie mix also a year and a half old.


We are busy now getting this new venture up and running, with the new tractor we are clearing, tilling, planting, building drainage etc.  We opened a "small farm stand" in March 2017.  Our grand opening was May 1 2017 where you now see the sign "The Loose Rooster Ranch" and the other signs for eggs, squash, zucchini and bath products made from herbs/flowers/veggies/honey grown on the property.   We always offer our fresh eggs, we have seasonal honey that sells out fast, and some awesome organic seasonal produce.
