Our Story

Blue Egg Farm LLC is a family-owned organic farm in Orinda, California that is certified as an Organic Grower and Livestock Producer by the California Certified Organic Farmers.

Our family is fortunate to live in a beautiful community and farm in one of the bread baskets of America. It is exciting to be part of San Francisco Bay’s vibrant culinary scene. As we work, we do all we can to protect our family, neighbors, customers, and land. We sow seeds and plant our vegetables, herbs and flowers with organic inputs, and package our products in compostable, reused, and recyclable materials and containers. Our seedlings grow in nutritious organic compost, worm castings, and vermiculite that we hand mix at the farm. As they grow, they are nourished with sea minerals, kelp and microbial innoculant. So, when our customers take their seedlings home, they are healthy and ready for prime growth. We also use organic compost and sea minerals in all of our planting areas, and we believe that it is this combination that makes our vegetables and fruits so delicious. We give our hens a great life with organic and soy-free feed, and lots of play time outside. In addition, we conserve our natural and other resources by using recycled materials, and employing solar power and drip irrigation systems. Our FAQs provide more information about our operation.

Blue Egg Farm has been called “an Orinda gem” by the Orinda News. We think that’s because quality and sustainability are central to everything thing we grow and create. Making you happy is our mission. If you are not completely satisfied with any of our products, we will give you a full refund. We also protect your privacy; we do not provide any information about you to any third party without your permission or unless required by law.

We started and continue our business with the love of our family and the help of our amazing friends, all of whom are small businesses just like Blue Egg, and partners. Thank you for supporting them and us.
