Meats – Naturally Raised Pork, Chicken and Turkey

You work hard to create tasty, healthy meals.  We work hard to help make that happen by raising our animals with respect and making sure their needs are well met. After all, they are our partners in the sustainability and success of our farm.

Our animals are raised in a low stress environment; this keeps them healthier.  They are given adequate space, nutritious food that is easily accessible and natural for their diet, free of added hormones, antibiotics and animal by-products.

Knowing where our food comes from is important to us and our customers.  Education is an important mission on our farm.    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 and love to have you come visit them.

Our laying hens are kept in a safe environment, where we can also find all the eggs they lay.

Free run Omega 3 Eggs

Eggs are my go to dish for a quick nutritious meal that is going to stick with me; no feeling hungry within an hour.  So versatile you can serve them a different way each day of the week.

White, brown or green shells don’t indicate a difference in flavour when they are all newly laid.  Pick them up fresh from the farm and savor the taste difference of  freshly laid eggs.

Bonus!! 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.

Looking to make a special meal that brings back memories of family meals at Grandmas?  Our roasting chickens are a great choice.

We raise them to approximately 10-12 weeks old which results in chickens ranging from 5 to 9 lbs, more than enough for a meal.  The leftovers give you time during the week to make delicious sandwiches for lunches or a quick casserole that’s ready in less than an hour.  Sure beats ordering in pizza on those crazy evenings when you have to dash out for yet another class.

They 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 also source boneless chicken breasts, chicken legs, and ground turkey and chicken from Poultry Place near St. Jacobs for times when you want small portions and easy to prepare meals.   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

Best turkey we’ve ever had are the comments that we hear in our market after the holidays.  For all the stress and effort you go to in making Thanksgiving and Christmas special it’s always nice to hear the guests compliment your cooking.

To help make that happen we raise a small number of turkeys here on the farm 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.

Love sausage but need to be careful about gluten.  We have a nice selection of gluten free sausage available in our market’s freezers as well pork chops, bacon and hams.

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 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.
