Whole Foods Market Northern California today announced its award of a Local Producer Grant to Blue Egg Farm LLC. Blue Egg was one of only 15 businesses, and three farms, chosen to receive the grant. Recipients are selected because they offer best-in-category quality, show a strong commitment to protecting the environment, and meet Whole Foods Market’s strict quality standards. “The Local Producer Grant program is an opportunity for Whole Foods Market to give back to small businesses that are working hard to make an impact in Northern California and Reno communities through their unique products and services,” said Rob Twyman, Regional President, Whole Foods Market, Northern California and Reno.
Although they were all apparently sleeping in late when we took this photo, we have hundreds of birds who call our farm their home. There are numerous bird feeders on our property, but what is even more important for the birds during the winter months are the food sources and shelters that Mother Nature offers. For example, our Valley and Coast Live Oak trees produce nutritious acorns that sustain all the various jays, woodpeckers, towhees, titmice, and other song birds. Insects who live in our beds that remain covered by fallen leaves, flower petals and rose hips are a food source for the American Robins. And, we can’t forget the role that flowers play in winters in northern California. Rudbeckia and Echinacea are two that we have on site that provide seed for various birds at this time and throughout the year. | kts
