Our family farm is located in the Christian Valley area above Westbridge, BC on 65 acres along the Kettle River. On our 65 acres we raise all of our own livestock. We have cattle, sheep, pigs, turkeys, chickens and laying hens.
ABOUT KETTLE KOUNTRY FARM
The cattle we raise on our farm are Black and Red Angus and we have two token Scottish Highlanders. Our cattle are grass fed only.
Our pigs are also raised by us. We are crossing Berkshire and Tamworth, both are heritage breeds. Tamworth produces more bacon and we all know you can never get enough bacon from a pig. Berkshire on the other hand has great flavour. Our pigs get to play in mud and forage and are fed non-GMO grain.
Our meat birds are giant Rock Cornish hens that come from Armstrong, BC. Our hens are not raised on steroids or antibiotics. When they feather out we put them outside where they can walk around. We put water at one end and food at the other end so they get exercise because some can get pretty lazy. These birds also get Non-GMO grain.
Our turkeys that we raise come from Abbotsford, BC. We get the St Nicholas and they are raised the exact same way our chickens are. These guys are available fresh for Thanksgiving and Christmas. If we have any leftover we get pieced out so they don’t take up to much room in the freezer.
