"Think Outside the Barn"
Poulet de Delta
We call our finished Canadian Bresse chicken Poulet de Delta as coined by Mr. Mark Schatzker in his chicken article published in the Globe and Mail. We thought it a good idea to adopt Poulet de Delta as it helps distinguish that there is a lot of rearing, caring and hard work involved before we get the finished product from hatching the Canadian Bresse breed of chicken to raising it for the table.
The Poulet de Delta is finished as closely to the French standard as possible using milk and cereal grains as well as a few special finishing touches.
New pricing coming this fall/winter season (whole bird 3-5.5lbs each).
Small batch artisan chicken. Giblets are not provided.

Heritage Line Collection
This collection is from our pastured heritage and rare flocks imported from all over the globe. One might either get a Bielefelder, Malines, Sulmtaler, Light Sussex, and the list goes on. Raised a minimum of 16 weeks on pasture.
New pricing coming this fall/winter season (whole bird 1.5-11 lbs each).
Small batch artisan chicken. Giblets excluded.
For the households who want a healthy cost effective option, we are now offering “Fresh Frozen Chicken”. The birds were finished with non-gmo and organic feeds. We found an ethical line of Cornish this year with good growth and no complications that are associated with larger growth poultry. These are the large birds known for large quantity of breast meat. With the rising costs of non-gmo and organic feed the feed conversion of this bird is more cost effective for us to raise than our signature Poulet de Delta or the Heritage Line.
If you would like a reminder for fresh chicken pick-up, please let us know so we can email you in advance before our trip to the abattoir.
New pricing coming this fall/winter season.
They range from 4 to 6 lbs per whole bird.
Pumpkin Finished Pastured Chicken
We are the first in Canada to offer something this unique for your palate. Our goal is to make this a tradition. Seriously, who is not burnt out on factory turkey anyways? We have selected about 100 of our popular Poulet de Delta (Canadian Bresse) and added a special treat to their diet for the holidays. Pumpkins! But not just any pumpkins and not any normal diet being these are raised as closely to the French standard as possible.
The pumpkins that we raise on the farm are a late 1800's variety of French heirloom pumpkins. It is not a coincidence that our line of heritage Poulet de Delta (Canadian Bresse) are noshing on these. It has taken several years of planning to make this all come together smoothly.
New pricing coming this fall/winter season (whole bird 3-5.5 lbs each).
Very limited artisan poultry. Available only this fall and winter. Giblets excluded.
