OUR EGGS ARE REGISTERED ORGANIC -

OUR CHICKENS LAY FRESH DOZENS 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 large order feed store/hatchery chicks that have been vaccinated because they were bred from a chicken mill (like puppy mills) so 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.  Customers that buy from these places keep the inhumane treatment of these "chicken mills" in business.

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

 WE CARE ABOUT OUR CHICKS!

OUR GOLDEN YELLOW SUMMER SQUASH

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


PLANTING SEASON: 

Summer planting 

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.
