STEWARDS OF THE LAND, RAISING HEALTHY CHICKEN HUMANELY
We have been farmers for the last 500 years following the footsteps of our forefathers. When it comes to farming, we constantly strive to be good stewards of the land so it is there for years to come for the next generation.
Nutrition & Health
Nutrition: everything starts with good nutrition to grow a healthy animal or bird. That's why we grow our own grain to feed our livestock, so that we always know what we have. We feed our birds healthy grain so they develop healthy that in turn gives our customers healthy food. With added strict bio security regulations that keeps disease out, our chickens can grow well without medication, hormones or antibiotics. We don't use animal or soy products in our feed – only homegrown grain produced on our farm. Our birds are raised over a period of 7 to 9 weeks free run, and develop in outdoor pens from May to November. The chickens simply enjoy the great outdoors of Alberta, breathing only the fresh blue mountain air, in low populated countryside.
The end result is a juicy, tasty and nutritious chicken!
