Protecting home

Our farm operates independently, without any government subsidies and we respect our natural resources and are mindful of the environmental impacts of our products. Our hens are raised without the use of hormones, antibiotics or steroids, and exceed animal welfare standards set out by the Egg Farmers of Canada. We’re proud to have the first and only Enriched Housing in our state-of-the-art layer barn, operating since the Spring of 2019.
