"The first supermarket supposedly appeared on the American landscape in 1946. That is not very long ago. Until then, where was all the food? Dear folks, the food was in homes, gardens, local fields, and forests. It was near kitchens, near tables, near bedsides. It was in the pantry, the cellar, the backyard."
- Joel Salatin, Folks: This Ain't Normal: A Farmer's Advice for Happier Hens, Healthier People, and a Better World
Farm Fresh Eggs
Salad made from
Pleasant Hill's produce
We have eggs year round from our flock of laying hens. Our friendly chickens are cage free and humanely raised. They eat a well-balanced chicken feed from our local co-op (no hormones, antibiotics, or GMOs), extras from our kitchen and the farm, and natural food they find while free ranging daily.

Pleasant Hill Produce provides high quality farm products grown by using sustainable practices. Our diverse selection makes us a great choice for a CSA or your market shopping. We are stewards of the land and maintain it for future generations to use. Using cover crops, crop rotation, companion planting, beneficial insects, and other techniques limit the use of fertilizers and insecticides. We not use any synthetic pesticides. Compost, manures, and crop residues enrich the soil. Large rain collection systems water our crops during drought. We work with our natural resources and environment.
Pleasant Hill Produce grows lots of heirloom varieties along with many trusted hybrids. We taste our products (with pleasure!) to ensure quality and promise to only provide the best. While our main focus is fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables, we also offer other farm goods. Because we are a local farm, most of our products are seasonal.
In addition to the crops we grow, we also source from other local farms and business to offer a very diverse selection of local goods.
