We are not certified organic. Our birds are grown outside on pasture This is not a requirement for certified organic production which only requires access to outside.

We have shelters to protect the birds from sun and rain and move the shelters regularly to fresh pasture.

Chickens and turkeys are omnivores. They eat both meat (bugs and grubs and plants (grains and pasture). They also have access to grain that is free from hormones, steroid, antibiotics and soy. In Canada poultry diets generally have approximately 85% wheat and 15% corn. Wheat is non-GMO.

All pasture raised poultry products are sold directly from the farm.

• Fresh chickens are available 4 times a year and turkeys are available fresh just before thanksgiving.

• Frozen products are available all year. We have no formal open hours but accept appointments for pick up. We will make every effort to accommodate your schedule.

Call or text (please leave your name when texting) or order on line to arrange pick-up.

We accept cash, cheque, debit or major credit cards.

Chickens range from 5 to 7 lbs and turkeys from 15 to 30 lbs.

The llamas help discourage birds of prey such as hawks, eagles and owls from taking our chickens and turkeys. Llamas are also good are discouraging larger predators such as coyotes or wild dogs.

What are the average sizes of your birds? Chickens range from 6 – 9 pounds. Turkeys range from 20 to 30 pounds.

Up to 10 days after pick-up from our farm. Chickens and turkeys in the grocery store are often a week old before being purchased. Store bought fresh chickens and turkeys need to be cooked in three days.

• Bring along a cooler with ice packs for your fresh chicken and turkey’s ride home.
• Make certain your fridge is at food safe temperature (4 degrees C or 40 degrees F).
• Put your turkey or chicken in the bottom back (coldest part) of your fridge.

The food safe temperature for poultry is 165°F. We like to take our birds out of the oven when the temperature is 10 degrees Fahrenheit below (155°F) and allow the chicken or turkey to sit for 30 mins on the counter covered with a towel. The internal temperature will raise that extra 10 degrees to 165°F. Use a meat thermometer to take the temperature in the thickest part of the breast or thigh meat and make sure the thermometer is not touching any bones. Follow the manufacturer’s directions on the proper use of your specific food thermometer. Always wash the food thermometer and other utensils and dishware that were used on raw or partially cooked poultry before using them again.

It is essential to have a digital meat thermometer with a probe inserted in the thickest part of the meat. We cook our poultry at 350°F.
