A Small Town Farm

Our family farm is located in Penryn, California. We take great pride in raising healthy and happy chickens for you and your family to enjoy. Each of our breeding flocks are selected carefully, aiming for quality instead of quantity. If you’re looking to add color to your egg basket, have a fancy breed, or looking for a great dual purpose breed we have you covered. We ship hatching eggs, chicks, and on occasion have pullets for local pick-up. We are NPIP certified, CA-487, and can ship hatching eggs and chicks anywhere in the United States.
