Local Poultry and Egg Farm
Four Generations of Egg-cellence!
Looking for a way to bring his family up in the country, away from the city, George Jenkins purchased a small chicken ranch in the Central San Joaquin Valley in 1967. Needing a business partner, he turned to his father-in-law, Chester McKim. On this ranch, they raised chickens and provided eggs to a small processor in Ripon, California. Seeing the need for cage-free and organic-grown chickens, he converted the poultry and egg farm to become completely cage-free in 1995. Great Valley Poultry has been organic certified with Global Culture since 2004. Now, his daughter, Dana Corbin, and her husband, Arney Corbin, have taken over the farm and still believe in the need for cage-free and organic eggs. Their son Denton Corbin is currently enrolled at the local Junior College majoring in Poultry Science and Agricultural Business. This makes the poultry and egg farm in Manteca, CA a four-generation farm that serves the Bay Area, CA and still going strong.
