About Us

Sol Seeker Farm is first generation small -family farm. Our mission is to bring our customers the highest quality organic pastured poultry by humanely raising our birds beyond organic standards.
Edgar grew up in the countryside of Paraguay and was schooled in organic livestock and agriculture production. It was in Paraguay where  he and Kaley met.  She was completing an internship with a local non-profit where Edgar worked at the time.  Edgar's education and experience with livestock in Paraguay combined with Kaley's experience in agriculture business development makes them "Sol" business and life partners.

 The day before Thanksgiving 2014, Kaley and Edgar welcomed their twins, Cruz and Antonella, to the family, who are represented in our logo by the two baby chicks. They believe they are chickens! 

At two years old, they have become daddy's helpers on the farm.  They love collecting eggs. 
In 2015, we brought in our livestock guard dogs, Samson and Shiko, our gentle giants.  They have been instrumental in protecting our flock from bobcats.  On the left the dogs are about 4 months and on the right, they are about 10 months.   Shiko passed in a hit an run after escaped the fence in March of 2017, just shy of two years old. We are sure he is guarding the rainbow bridge.

We then welcomed Luna toour family.  She is a great barker!  She is training with Samson and keeping him company.

Sol Seeker Farm takes its name from a play on words in Spanish and English. "Sol" in Spanish translates to sun and is pronounced like soul in English.  Utilizing the bilingual pun is quite appropriate for a number of reasons:
  • The general partners, Kaley Grimland de Mendoza and Edgar Mendoza are soul mates. 

  • We believe that everything has a soul and should be treated with such respect; therefore, we demonstrate humane practices in raising the poultry from receiving the chicks to processing the birds.

  • Edgar and Kaley both love to spend time under the sun/Sol. The farm is located on the organic walnut orchard of Hain Ranch Organics in San Benito County beyond the coastal fog.
