For Immediate Release:

Brentwood, California, Contra Costa County, Tuesday, September 7, 2021 - Today, the Loose Rooster Ranch, a woman owned and operated business and a registered Organic Ranch & CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) has announced plans to permanently close, and to offer the property for sale.


Since 2015 The Loose Rooster Ranch has been a neighborhood icon & educational experience.  Recognized by the baby blue barn of bees and sunflowers, and the 8 foot tall metal rooster in the front of the property. The Ranch is #56 on the map for Brentwood Harvest Time.


For over 5 years the Ranch has been the supplier of organic produce, free ranging chickens and eggs, as well as producer of local honey from the large apiary at the ranch.  The Ranch has supplied the community with classes ranging from beekeeping, horse, goat, chicken care to soap making, and various other crafts.  The Ranch is completely Organic, Chemical, and Pesticide free!  Additionally, 100% irrigated by its own well, and fertilized by all natural fertilizer produced at the ranch. (Chicken, Horse manure, composted)


The Loose Rooster Ranch has been a go-to working ranch for many San Francisco Bay Area school field trips, and has also hosted High School foreign exchange students from Europe. The Ranch included a "Farm Stay" program which allowed over 100 guests during the past five years to experience farm & ranch life. 


The owner, Katrina,  has announced her intent to return to the tech industry full time, and will be marketing the ranch for sale within the next two weeks.  The business will begin shutting down operations and preparing the Ranch for market.  There has not been an announcement of any sale of the business assets, only the intent of listing the property on the market.


More information will be available within the next two weeks as to the plan and when the property will be on the market for sale.


For more information or interest, contact owner, Katrina Lomax by email at [email protected]


Looking for Eggs? Order them here and pick up at the Urban Edge Farm Store

Our EGGS are at the URBAN EDGE FARM STORE. This is a local farm store located on

Walnut Blvd in Brentwood. The Urban Edge Farm Store!

SINCE 2015 - WE HAVE BEEN SUPPLYING FARM FRESH EGGS, LIVE CHICKENS, HONEY AND HONEY PRODUCTS to the Bay Area

SINCE 2015 - WE ARE EDUCATORS IN BEEKEEPING, HORSEMANSHIP, SOAP CRAFTING AND ANIMAL HUSBANDRY, guest speakers and educational demonstrations throughout the Bay Area

Some facts about our Ranch - WE ARE NOT A ROOSTER RESCUE - We are a private ranch & farm and provide education and produce farm products. PLEASE BE PATIENT if we do not get back to you right away, COVID-19 HAS IMPACTED OUR OPERATIONS and we don't have the kind of time we used to have to respond to inquiries!

NOTE: We are no longer providing sales to the Public.  If you have questions, please email me.

Please do not "drop by" as we have gone back to Tech, and work during the day and attend to the animals in the early mornings and

evening. We have limited time due to our work schedules and limited time on weekends to work the Ranch and maintain the animals.

WE ARE SUPPORTING THE COMMUNITY AND WILL CONTINUE TO SUPPLY THE COMMUNITY PRIVATELY and Online

When we are open and when we have inventory we supply:

Organic free-range Eggs

Chicks

Chickens - laying hens, great foragers for organic bug control, for breeding your own, and for meat birds

Farm Crafts - crafts made from recycled items or from what we produce at the farm

Soaps - organic, handmade, using what is grown/harvested at the ranch

Honey

Honey comb

Pollen 

If you are looking for our beautiful handmade Artisan Soaps and bath products, we sell via Amazon Handmade.

THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING YOUR LOCAL FARMS AND BUSINESSES.

Stay well ~ Kate (Katrina) Owner

Our first priority is honey bee and pollinator preservation. Our second priority is to educate the public on honeybees, and beekeeping. Of course the third is to enjoy HONEY! We will share it with you if they produce!

We are part of a larger network of beekeepers. Please post to Mount Diablo Beekeepers Assoc (MDBA) www.diablobees.org they have a FaceBook page - We can get back to you after working hours (after 6pm M-F)

OUR EGGS ARE REGISTERED ORGANIC -

OUR CHICKENS LAY FRESH DOZENS EVERY DAY

Now available at the URBAN EDGE FARM STORE

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 process eggs every Saturday morning. We sanitize, check for defects, size/grade them according to California department of health specifications.

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! When you visit the ranch we may ask you not to walk around, because by law we cannot have you handle our animals, or bring your animals in. They would need to be quarantined for 2 weeks prior to being introduced to our animals. Please do not bring you pets!!  

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!
