Sunbird Farms has recently been officially registered as an “Egg Handler” by the California Department of Food and Agriculture. We are now “Handler# 0637.” This registration by the CDFA means that we can officially sell our pastured eggs at retail, including local Farmer’s Markets. It’s just one more demonstration of our commitment to getting the best food possible to as many people as possible. While we don’t anticipate opening at the local markets this season, we will be making more of our premium eggs available to our local customers. It may be a small step, but we are pretty darn excited! Our eggs come from heritage chickens raised on organic pasture, like French Black Copper Marans, Dutch Breda, Basque Hens, Buckeyes, and Plymouth Rocks. These are some of the best heritage layers anywhere, laying a beautiful array of eggs from chalk white to chocolate brown. We hope to have our egg production in full swing come the spring, but we will have a limited quantity available now, so send us a note if you’re interested in getting your hands on some of our eggs from our heirloom flock.
