Chickens (Eggs and Meat)

Basket members will receive eggs in almost every basket throughout the season. Our chickens are dual-purpose, meaning that they are both egg-layers and meat birds. At the end of the season we have the flock professionally slaughtered, and their meat will be given to members into their last share of the season.

Please note that we only plan on producing enough eggs to satisfy the demands of our CSA members – any extra eggs may be sold at our farm gate or by ordering, but Ontario quota law prohibits unlicensed producers from selling eggs at the farmers’ market without a grading station.
