We are part of the Artisanal Chicken Program through the Chicken Farmers of Ontario. This program allows us to raise up to 3000 chickens on our farm, selling direct to consumers, through restaurants and grocery stores. This is an amazing program! Not only do we have access to some great resources and training, it also allows us to maintain a very high quality life for our chickens. Through the program we have to adhere to the CFO's regulations from everything to receiving the chicks to housing them to daily care and shipping to the abattoir. We have yearly inspections with the CFO to make sure we are doing the best job that we can possibly do! And every year we are able to improve our operation.
Pasture raised chicken, GMO free, free range, cage free, free run... there are so many different terms used to describe how animals are raised now, so many that is often has us, the farmers confused! We are here to clear the air and explain how we raise our chickens and why we do it!
We believe strongly in allowing an animal to express their true selves throughout their life. We allow our pigs an environment to root through the soil & chickens to enjoy dandelions and search for bugs. We believe that our animals are happier and healthier because they have access to the sunshine and fresh green pastures! Which in turn gives us a high quality meat and egg product.
