When visiting the nursery you’ll see our ten hens, happily patrolling the grounds scratching for tasty bugs and weeds. People are delighted to see how friendly and healthy they are. Many of our visitors decide they would like to have chickens in their own backyards. Napa allows folks with regular sized yards to have some hens (but no roosters.) Nothing beats the delicious fresh eggs! Also, hens provide natural insect control. And they contribute to the composting bin or pile—all for healthier gardens. Ask us about using worms to compost vegetable matter if you don’t have enough room for a regular compost pile. You can make your own fertilizer with your food scraps, weeds, prunings, papers and cardboard scraps.
