Salmon Arm, BC
Farmcrest Foods is a small, but integrated, family-run business that raises specialty birds near Salmon Arm. The Bell and Bird families are hard-working, third-generation farmers from Ireland who favour quality over quantity and strive to be environmental stewards of the land. Chicks are hatched each week and raised in nearby barns where they are free to run. There, they are fed healthy grains, many of which are grown without artificial fertilizers on the 300-acre farm and all of which are mixed at the feed mill on site. Once grown, the birds end their journey at a family-operated plant.
