We will be selling our honey and crafts:
December 15th - 23rd. 5pm to 7pm  Only on non rain evenings - at our barn stand.  3280 Bixler Rd, Brentwood, CA.  Right at the blue barn with the sunflowers and bees painted on it.  If you see the gate open and the sign says open, then WE ARE OPEN!

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!

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.

OUR GOLDEN YELLOW SUMMER SQUASH

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


We are busy getting ready for winter now.  The rains will come soon and so we are modifying the barn to be able to drain water better.


We have a CONVENIENT DRIVE THRU for you.


We are PESTICIDE FREE  and REGISTERED ORGANIC, and in process of our ORGANIC CERTIFICATION for California 

 NON GMO!  All  non GMO seeds - no genetically altered produce!


We have California home grown, free ranging chickens(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:  Summer planting now: Bok Choy, Cabbage, Spinah, Squash, zucchini, eggplant varieties, tomatoes, cantaloupe and herbs.  Flowers for the bees and edible for us; lavender, rosemary, sage, savia, catnip and for us as well, oregano, basil, nasturtium.  


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!


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.  These names reflect in our labels (see Bee Lives Matter page)  


We also 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.  


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

We are an Urban Farm on 4.75 acres.  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.  Our biggest challenge is time and controlling weeds.  Since we are weekend warriors (we have day jobs Monday thru Friday) we have limited time to work the farm.  Yet, we prevail and every year make more improvements and produce more!


In the first two years we struggled with success and failure to see what would grow.  The soil which was not altered at all is rich in nutrients, good bugs and has 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 4.75 acre ranch.


Our birds:  We have bred a very hearty variety of chickens that are a cross between Buff Orphingtons, Leghorns, Wyandottes, Austrolorps, Americanas, and American Game Birds.  They will produce medium/large sized eggs for years. These hens are native to California, born and raised generations on the ranch, not from mail order or feed stores.  

These birds are very tolerant to disease, hot dry temps, and freezing cold weather.  In fact we had a 12 year old rooster, named Sweet Pea - the Grand Daddy to them all!  We lost him in 2016, 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!  The owner, Katrina Lomax, is a long time horse owner & trainer.  She has adopted & trained 3 Mustangs, as well as participated many years in the Mustang Makeover in Reno, NV.  She held various positions through the years with the Golden State Appaloosa Horse Association including President in the early 2000's. 


The ranch has 5 goats, which are mostly weed abatement. They are fun to watch.  One is hired as a 'guard goat' warning to strangers, he will defend the property!  He loves carrots as payment.


Coco and Crispy or (Cocoa crispy) are the most friendliest Lamancha goats and love kids - Come see them and get a "kiss"


The ranch currently has medium dogs. All rescued.  

Foster dogs:  Chippewa or "Chip" for short: a medium sized fixed mixed terrier 3 years old - he is fostered and looking for a forever home.  Lodi is a handsome fixed Carolina Dog and is about one year of age. He is also a foster and looking for a forever home.  


The ranch dog named Aria: A sweet, quiet, border collie mix, spayed 3 years old is a love bug.


We commute long hours to our day jobs in Mountain View.  (4 hours a day!) That is why we are not open full time.  Weekends we are extremely busy running the ranch has been a challenge.  We have one tractor which we use for everything.  We opened a "small farm stand" in March 2017.  Our grand opening was May 1, 2017 and you now see the sign "The Loose Rooster Ranch" and the big rooster in the front of the house.  In the Spring of 2018, the barn was painted blue.  It has honeybees, honey pot and sunflowers.  This is where the farm stand is.
