New resources for farmers and the public

GIM fctsht eggs
For the past ten years UCCE staff have been writing “custom” fact sheets for our local farmers and ranchers. These popular GIM factsheets cover a wide range of topics, from building a cheese plant to raising meat chickens to livestock slaughter and meat processing requirements in California.

Download the new factsheet Producing and Selling Eggs in Marin County written by Lisa Bush and Jeff Stiles. It tells you everything you need to know to get started. There is also a new resource sheet for students attending the Artisan Cheese courses at the College of Marin - or anyone who’s interested in finding out more about artisan cheeses, North Bay Artisan and Farmstead Cheesemaking Resources. Access these and other factsheets online at: http://ucanr.org/sites/Grown_in_Marin/Resources/Resources_for_Farmers/GIM_Factsheets/.

The new GIM website also has a resource section for the public. For Marin residents, we’ve compiled information regarding keeping chickens in your own backyard and other useful resources to help get you started, Backyard Chicken Resources.
