Chris' Egg Farm, located just outside the City of Corning - the Olive Capitol of the world - is a local leader in organic, free-range, cage free poultry (egg) production (in plain english our chickens are very, very happy birds). We maintain egg laying flocks with distinct blood lines to both old English heirloom birds (such as the Sussex) and local American favorites (Rhode Island Reds). We are a very small, local company somewhat unique in that we are a joint family/Christian organization. Most of our eggs are sold at local Farmers Markets (Chico, Red Bluff, Redding and Corning in Northern California) with the remainder supplying various Missions, Churches and food kitchens in several counties in the North State area. As a Christian based facility we also operate a small bird sanctuary and take in unwanted (mainly poultry) birds of all kinds of feathers....note we can fix broken wings and remedy the occasional broken leg however, unfortunately, we are unable to accept sick or diseased birds at this time. PLEASE DO NOT drop diseased birds over the fence...this could literally wipe us out. Thank you. We do heartily WELCOME all visitors, including school, pre-school and Church/Christian groups however gas and diesel driven vehicles are NOT permitted on this facility (visitors must also pass through a footwear disinfecting station upon arrival). As a precaution against the spread of avian flu and other bird diseases we also respectfully ask that you put off your visit if you have visited another poultry facility or farm (including county fairs) within the preceding 24 hours. In addition to our egg production we also operate a small, year round hatchery and nursery for baby chickens. We also produce a limited amount of aged compost/fertilizer (solid) and liquid fertilizer (black gold) for sale at local Farmers Markets. In order to diversify our little farm we are planning on raising commercial agricarus bisparus (white button cap) mushrooms - hopefully towards the end of 2009. In closing we ask that He be with you and that He gives you strength and comfort during these difficult times.
