Urban Digs Farm http://www.urbandigsfarm.com/ Urban Digs Farm started out as a 1/4 acre urban farm in the heart of Vancouver. From there, we grew to an acre in Richmond, then to 3 acres in Burnaby where we discovered our passion for pasture-raised pigs. Raising pigs in Burnaby was great in the summer but pretty miserable in the winter and soon we realized that we needed a lot more land and a lot less rain. So we couldn’t be more thrilled to have finally settled down on 21 acres in the Nicola Valley near Merritt. The pigs are ranging through woodlands & meadows and the days are mostly clear and sunny under a beautiful blue sky. It has been almost a year since we bought the property which has given us some time to get to know each other. The one thing that has been a constant theme over the past year is the big blue sky so it was only fitting that we name the place Blue Sky Ranch. It celebrates our escape from the rain and also the way we raise our animals. We hope you like it too 🙂 Offering bones and bone broth, pasture raised pork, grass-fed beef and bison, pastured chicken, turkey, eggs and ducks, and pasture-raised dog food. Available at the Urban Digs beasty shop, farmer’s markets, or free delivery.
Pastured Eggs and Poultry Sold at Vancouver Farmer’s Markets
lamington heritage farm langley, BC firstname.lastname@example.org 604-530-0559 We are a small family farm. Our animals are raised without the use of hormones and medications. Poultry are fully pastured, run free in the fields, and only go in the barns at night for protection. They have certified organic grain available to eat as well as the foraging they do on the fields. The certified organic grain ensures that there is no GMO product. Birds living on our farm include heritage chickens,ducks, geese, guninea fowl, heritage turkey plus occassionally broiler chickens. At present we only sell broiler chicken and duck at the market whole or by the piece. Our lamb and sheep are also pastured or receive hay. They receive minimal amount of certified organic grain in their lifetime. The lamb is therefore slow growing and lean. All lambs are born on our farm. No medications are used unless absolutely necessary for the welfare of the animal. We will bottle feed a lamb when necessary, no milk supply from mother, triplets or death of mother. Aside from broiler chicks, all of our animals are hatched or born on our farm. The final product has been described as some of the best meat customers have ever eaten. It comes in vacuum sealed bags to ensure freshness.
We sell Duck and Chicken eggs when available. Our chicken eggs are from our heritage birds running around outdoors scratching where they like. They also have access to certified organic grain.
