Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary saves 565 chickens from death

Today, Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary will open its doors to 556 adoptable hens from a commercial egg farm in the San Joaquin Valley.

The hens will be available for adoption starting on Monday, July 22.

The hens are all two and a half year old White Leghorns. They are in excellent health and vaccinated. Most hens live to 10 years. They are generally active, becoming very friendly and curious with attention from adopters.

The hens will be adopted to homes that will care for the chicken as companion animals. Due to conditions in the commercial egg farm, the hens beaks are all clipped and they will need special accommodation for feeding.

Oak Farm Vineyard in Lodi, CA building expansive tasting facility

 Center's design will focus on convincing wine lovers to "stay a while"

   

   Construction has begun on what Oak Farm Vineyard owners say will be Lodi's largest wine tasting facility, an expansive 12,000-square-foot building that is designed to invite people to "stay awhile."

   Oak Farm winery director Mike Shinn said the goal of the expansion, which he calls a "Wine and Hospitality Facility," is to make Oak Farm a destination north of Lodi city limits. On DeVries Road, the winery will help the nearby Peltier Road, which is also dotted with other wineries such as M2, St. Jorge, the Viaggio and others become a can't-miss corridor for the Valley's wine enthusiasts, Shinn said.
