How We Raise our Poultry
Our All Natural chickens and turkeys are simply the best tasting birds you'll find - reminiscent of the farm-raised chickens you remember. Superior tasting meat is a result of animal husbandry, feeding practices and processing skills. All our poultry is raised in a low stress environment on a healthy vegetarian diet without the use of growth promoting medications or hormones. Our birds are fed a mix of whole wheat, barley, flax, peas, vegetable proteins, vitamins and minerals.
Our chickens and turkeys have access to the outdoors and sunlight when weather permits. Otherwise, they roam free on a straw pack in the barn with free access to food and fresh water.
Meat Processing and Food Safety
Knowing where your food comes from and how it was produced is important. To that end, we maintain careful records for each flock of birds in accordance with the On Farm Food Safety Assurance Program (OFFSAP) that is approved by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and Chicken Farmers of Canada. These records include feeding information, bird health, barn and outdoor conditions, water quality etc.
Food safety is of utmost concern at Pine View Farms. We operate an on-farm poultry processing plant that is government inspected by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency as part of the provincial meat inspection program. Again, meticulous record keeping and protocols keep the food and our employees safe.
We offer a wide variety of chicken and turkey products including sausages and deli meats. Please refer to our price list at the left for complete information.
We raise and process six to eight flocks of chickens each year which means we have pretty much continuous production available. We encourage you to pre-order your birds; orders are always given priority but we try to have extra chickens available throughout the year. Please refer to our butcher dates for more information.
