Happy Hens Farm is a sustainable, working farm located on Sonoma Mountain in Petaluma, California.  The ranch is home to a range of poultry and livestock including:  chickens, turkeys, ducks, sheep, goats, pigs and cows.  

We rely on our working dogs to help manage the farm — a team of formidable livestock guardian dogs who protect the ranch from predators and our ranch boss and herding dog, Jack.

We believe in an integrated "barnyard community"  that reflects the farming practices of a bygone era. The farm animals — the chickens, turkeys, ducks, sheep, goats, cows, dogs and llama — are allowed to live and roam together.  

Because of this commingling, it's easier to appreciate the farm as a whole, vital, living organism as the animals display their natural behaviors, bonded relationships and their mutual interdependence with one another.  

Our commitment to a pre-industrial model of farming creates healthier and happier animals.

All animals are humanely raised on pasture in a stress-free environment as possible and without the use of antibiotics or growth hormones.

The farm is in the process of organic certification.
