Chicken

2013 05 22 White-Rock-CrossFor the past number of years, starting when Katrina and Rachel wanted to be able to have a “summer job”, we have been raising 300 meat birds as part of the Ontario small flock program. Starting in 2016, we have been approved to raise up to 600 meat birds as part of the Ontario Artisanal flock program.

New_ChicksWe get our chicks as day olds from a local hatchery, and brood them until they are large enough to go out into our pasture pens for daily moves on fresh pasture. One of the great things about chickens is that they add nitrogen to our fields which is great for our pastures, and they are also avid insect eaters, so help with pest and parasite control for the other animals.

You can purchase our meat chickens as either whole roasters, or a whole bird – cut into halves.
