Alexandre Kids is an offshoot of the Alexandre Family EcoDairy Farm, producing organic milk for Humbuldt Creamery and Rumiano Cheese. Started as a High School FFA Project by two of the Alexandre Kids, Joseph and Christian, and supported with the help of their three siblings, all of the hens are raised on organic pastures under the watchful eyes of the Alexandre dairy cows and Great Pyrenees guard dogs. The hens graze on green, lush organic grass and have room to roam in the fresh coastal air and sunshine. Mobile coops designed by the family are moved a couple of times per week so that the pasture gets desired fertilizer and prevent overgrazing. The hens intermingle with the dairy cows and enjoy a natural farm life setting where they can produce the most nutritious organic eggs.
Owners and 4th generation dairy farmers, Blake and Stephanie Alexandre are strong proponents of sustainable farm practices, nutritional education and environmental stewardship. The Alexandre’s use no pesticides, fertilizers, hormones, antibiotics or GMOs on their CCOF Certified Organic farm. They have also been leaders in the conservation of the Redwoods Coast Wetlands, working hand in hand with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and many others to restore wetlands and protect waterfowl like the Aleutian Cackling Canada Geese. They bought their first farm in 1992 and have established three more farms throughout Northern California. Check out this video of their farm!
