Raised under the Artisanal Chicken Program, our chickens live on pasture – grazing rotationally on grasses and legumes and foraging for insects and seeds. They also receive a diverse mix of locally grown grain and seeds, most of which is organically grown and all of which is non-GMO, clean and unmedicated. When they are ready, we transport them a short distance to the local Amish community, where they are processed with care at an Ontario Approved inspected abattoir called Chicken Little. The sausage is processed at another Ontario Approved inspected facility called VG Meats, which is why you see this name on the label.
We raise the heritage breed Tamworth or “Irish Grazer”. We raise pigs outdoors farrow-to-finish where pasture meets woodland’s edge. Along with grazing happily on pasture, pigs are fed a local, organically grown mix of grain, vegetables and raw milk from our Jersey cows. When they are ready, the pigs are transported and processed with care at an Ontario Approved inspected abattoir called Townsend Butchers.
At every step for all our animals, Three Ridges Ecological Farm and the abattoir follow strict animal welfare and food safety protocols to ensure the health of the birds and safety of our customers.
