About Us / Pajaro Pastures History: At Pajaro Pastures we seek to reconnect the seemingily distant paradigms of ecology and agriculture. By reintegrating soil, plants, and animals we work to better understand ecological workings of our farm system to provide you with the highest quality eggs and while protecting and enhancing the environment. The seven acre ranch is located in the floodplains of historic Pajaro Valley at the base of Mt. Madonna.Unlike the average “free-range” “cage free” chicken farm we move the birds to fresh grass/forage every week. The diet of the chickens is supplemented with Certified Organic Feed, Certified Organic Vegetables, and Certified Organic Brewers Grain. Our birds spend all day outside doing fun activities such: suntanning, dustbathing, exploring, hunting bugs, and of course napping. At night they perch safely inside their mobile coop. A solar-powered electric fence and G the guard dog work day and night to keep predators away.The ranch is primarily mixed annual grassland with mustard, chicory, and native perennial grasses. We have two heritage breeds of chickens, about 150 Rhode Island Reds/New Hampshire Reds and 150 Rhode Island Red/Rhode Island Whites.
