Our birds are treated with respect and care

ChickenRegarding the inhumane treatment of birds on the CTV video: At our farm we do not use the catching crew that was used in the video. We employ local people to perform these tasks for us along with our own employees.

Either Ian (owner) or our farm manager is on site supervising the entire time. The catchers on our farm sign a document EVERY time they are on farm, this document explains clearly what and how we expect them to perform their duties. It is very clear that no abuse is tolerated. The birds must be handled with care and compassion at all times no exceptions. We were appalled by the video.
