FRESH - FREE-RANGING CHICKENS - These eggs are so different - get yours today

OUR EGGS ARE REGISTERED ORGANIC - OUR CHICKENS LAY A FRESH DOZEN EVERY DAY

Our eggs are free range, pasture raised, and from all different breeds of chickens.  You see, we believe that the chickens born from generations on the ranch have been naturally selected from the strongest chickens.  


We do not believe that one breed of chicken is best - we like the "mutt" of chickens - those that survived year after year, strong foragers, disease tolerant, heat and cold resistant, and from hens that were allowed to have their baby chicks here.  


No genetically altered chickens, no antibiotics, no false advertising.  


ALSO we are a registered valid business and with a registered valid egg producer and handler certified!  Beware of those selling backyard eggs (on Social Media) and without a business license!  Beware of those ranches that have slow egg production - their chickens may not have been so hardy or come from breeders in the Midwest that only care about how many they can sell to feed stores..  These chickens (chicks) are marketed so that they produce max eggs in 2 years and then die.

TASTE THE DIFFERENCE - BUY YOUR EGGS HERE - LOCALLY!  WE ARE A SMALL BUSINESS, SMALL SALES 

 WE CARE ABOUT OUR CHICKS!

HAND MADE - FARM PRODUCTS from recycled items found at the ranch and from natures ingredients

We have quite a few handmade items for sale now!  Please consider shopping locally and supporting local farms and crafters.


Newly created farm animal chalk boards, drink caddy's from reclaimed barnwood, Animal soaps, and natural soaps - all hand made with items from the Ranch.  Check back for pics. FaceBook @looseroost.  


Winter hours - We will be open as the weather permits.  By appt - please call us at 925-308-7126 for orders of honey, Honeycomb, bee pollen, and eggs for pick up during the week.  Please give us 24 hour notice.   


Text or call us first - Convenient drive through - just pull in the driveway at the barn or main entrance - off street parking!

BEST LIP BALM EVER


All natural Honey & Beeswax lip balms!


Made from our harvested beeswax from our Loose Rooster Ranch hives, and our delicious honey - we now have "lip service".  


Two kinds to choose from - Peppermint Vanilla & Lavender Vanilla


I personally am in love with these.  They include all organic ingredients: Beeswax, honey, Coconut Oil, Almond Oil and Shea Butter, Vitamin E, and a lovely combination of peppermint & vanilla essential oils.  These were selling at the Brentwood Ace for $3.79 and sold out!  So get them now at the ranch barn-stand for $2.50 

Handmade products include lotion bars, Body mousse, natural soaps, beeswax candles, crocheted face/body 'scrubbies', drink caddies, farm animal chalk boards, and more!  We also use reclaimed/repurposed wood to create unique hand crafted pieces. We have jewelry made from real Mustang horse hair (since we do own 3 gentled, once wild, registered Mustangs)  - we are creating and adding things everyday, so check back!

Some of our home made products include pure beeswax candles and various items made from old barn wood and other things found around the property.

OUR GOLDEN YELLOW SUMMER SQUASH

NEW LOGO (above) which we now have t-shirts, bags, stickers and hats!


PLANTING SEASON: Shortly in February we will start planting the following:

 Bok Choy, Arugula, Kale, Cabbage, Spinach, & varieties of lettuce


Summer planting we start in April:

Squash, zucchini, eggplant varieties, watermelon, cantaloupe and herbs.  Late: pumpkins


All year we plant: Flowers for the bees and edible for us; lavender, rosemary, sage, savia, sunflowers, catnip and for us as well, oregano, basil, nasturtium.  


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


The Apiary (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. We also have sponsored hives that have their sponsors names, which they bottle for themselves.


Today we have about 60 commercial 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 in the Spring.
