You're lost, driving down Vanowen Street in the Lake Balboa district of the San Fernando Valley, musing about whether this road's tired and thrashed apartment buildings are uglier than Lincoln Boulevard's beat-down and claptrap storefronts. Nah, you think — when suddenly you spot an out-of-place sign that would be well nigh impossible in your own neighborhood. It reads “The Kendor Farm,” and it touts the firm's certified organic eggs and organic, free-range chickens. Is this a movie shoot? Nope. Tucked into aging residential hell, this well-regarded organic firm supplies eggs to four farmers markets locally — Calabasas, Encino, Hollywood and Peninsula Center in Rolling Hills Estates. The firm keeps regular office hours in Lake Balboa, but if you buy direct, you have to purchase a minimum of 30 dozen eggs. Instead, check out Kendor Farm at the nearest of the four farmers markets. 17344 Vanowen St., Lake Balboa. (818) 774-0755,
