We encourage you to review our policies regarding Terms of Service, Privacy, Shipping and Refunds at any time during your order for clarification.

Two requirements must be met in order for meat to be acceptable for consumption in the Islamic faith.

Traditional halal meat is slaughtered by hand quickly and humanely and must be blessed.

We are proud to achieve halal certification with HMA since 2019.

Free-range, cage-free and pasture-raised are all terms used to describe unrestricted access to the outdoors.  Whether you’re interested in animal welfare or food quality, how chickens are raised is what matters. This means healthy conditions such as access to daily sunlight, pasture and water and results in better quality meat – you can truly tastes the difference.

 

Raising poultry to meet organic standards is not as simple as providing high quality, organic feed free of antibiotics, supplements and animal by-products.

We are mandated to raise our flocks “responsibly, with care and consideration. Stress, injury and suffering shall be minimized in all livestock handling practices, including transport and slaughter.”

This includes clean, living conditions that accommodate the health and natural behaviour of animals such as fresh water on demand, access to the outdoors, protection from the elements, rotational pasture, exercise areas, fresh air and daylight.

We must also adhere to restrictions around chemicals used whether it be housing, bedding, cleaning and any materials that the chickens may be in contact with upto and including transport and harvest.

We are excited to be the first small-scale farm in Ontario that is certified organic since 2019.

WHY CERTIFICATION IS IMPORTANT

Our faith requires us excel in all aspects including nourishment which should be of the highest quality, wholesome, pure

Kulū minat-tayyibāti wa-‘malū sālihā
Eat of the good things and act righteously
