Urban Farming: Oakland, CA

Chickens, Veggies, & Country Time

Your mother may cringe at our friends out-dated décor, reminiscent of an old cabin in the woods, but Jess & Joel call it home in Oakland, CA.  With their 2 rabbit hunting whippets, 5 egg-laying chickens, spear fishing equipment, mountain bikes, and antlers on the wall you may wonder why they don’t just move to the country.

On one Saturday morning, Joel surprised us by yelling into the living room, “Who wants Breakfast tacos?”  After spending the night at the cabin, we woke up to the sounds and smells of an “Oakland Farm.”  Freshly laid eggs were crackling in the pan, the chickens were clucking, and the river of highway traffic flowed by.  At that point we decided that urban farming should be more than just a counter-culture fad and that the trend should stay!  It is a delicious choice, especially for your house-guest friends!
