Meats – Naturally Raised Pork, Chicken and Turkey
We believe in treating our animals with respect; they are our partners in the sustainability and success of our farm. Our animals are given adequate space, nutritious food that is easily accessible and natural for their diet, free of added hormones, antibiotics and animal by-products.
Our animals are raised in a low stress environment which keeps them healthier. Medical care is provided if needed. We house most of our animals in our barn due to the presence of predators, mainly coyotes.
Education is an important mission on our farm. We feel it is essential for people to know where their food comes from. All our animals are visible to the public during our hours open. We have boards posted with interesting facts about them so you can learn more. Our staff are eager to answer your questions. If they don’t know the answer they will find out for you.
Not all of our animals are for meat production. Our sheep and goats are great farm ambassadors for the visiting public.
Free run Omega 3 Eggs
Our laying hens are fed a diet of mixed grain enhanced with black sunflower seeds which they love. This gives their eggs a boost in Omega 3
Our roasting chickens arrive as day old chicks. You can watch them grow in our special warm mini-barns found in our animal barn. Once they have enough feathering to be outside they go out on pasture in a special hoop house which we can move when fresh grass is needed. We raise them to approximately 10-12 weeks old which results in roasting chickens ranging from 5 to 9 lbs.
Not everyone wants a whole roasting chicken. We source boneless chicken breasts, chicken legs, and ground turkey and chicken from Poultry Place near St. Jacobs. Their products are free-range, drug free, and made from only the finest poultry of local farmers.
Fresh turkeys are available for Thanksgiving and Christmas
We raise a small number of turkeys and source what extras we need from other local producers.
Our turkeys are mainly sold by special order so don’t delay. We begin taking orders late August, early September for Thanksgiving and in November for Christmas.
Sorry, you can’t be too specific about the size; we ask for a 5 pound range to be able to accommodate your request as closely as possible.
Visit our pigs in our animal barn. You may get to see their happy dance if you are there when their pens are cleaned and refreshed. They are fed a diet of mixed grain with the occasional greens as treats. We raise them to approx. 250 lbs so their meat is lean and tender.
We have a nice selection of gluten free sausage, pork chops, bacon, roasts and hams available in our market’s freezers.
We are small scale producers as we do not have a large number of any of the farm animals. Raising them in a spacious environment without any growth enhancers means the animals take longer to reach their optimum weight. More effort and food is required in raising them this way; production costs are higher. The results are worth it though.
Apart from enjoying the animals for who they are we find the meat they give us is healthier and the flavour exceptional.
