Most Canadians now experience 2-3 degrees of separation from the traditional family farm and Mark and Tania want to change that.
The 'Pork Shoppe' will be open which carries their Premium Pastured Berkshire Pork in addition to free range eggs, coffee from Red Hill Coffee Trade, Honey and savory jams & jellies.
Why buy from Boar & Chick? They believe in a low stress, natural environment for their animals. Healthy litters grow into healthy pigs which results in excellent quality meat. No artificial growth hormones, anti-biotics, farrowing grates or cheap feed are used. They are fed squash, nuts and other seasonal products and grow slow which lends itself to deep marbling in the meat and a taste that you will not find in commercial raised pork. The bacon is smoked in a traditional Mennonite Smoke House and the sausages are prepared in a soy casing with no wheat or gluten filler.
They believe in an 'open door' policy and encourage curious people to their farm so they can experience first hand what this way of life is like and hopefully gain some more understanding of the partnership between farmer, land, weather and animal.
