FAQs

 

Langley chicken farmHow do I get my hands on your products?

We are currently by appointment for pickup off the farm. Since we have a full time farm manager and also live on site we are very flexible — Contact us to arrange a time that is convenient.

You can also find us at various farmers’ markets, and local boutique meat shops throughout the Lower Mainland.

What is free range?

Normally found when dealing with chicken, pork, and eggs. Free range animals are raised free of cages and provided access to the outdoors.

Central Park Farms’ chicken is free range with outdoor pasture access.

Do we give our animals antibiotics?

No we don’t — Central Park Farms’ chicken, pork, and beef is antibiotic free. For more information on what happens if we have a sick animal check out our blog post, But, what happens if someone get’s sick?

Do we give our animals hormones?

In Canada, no hormones are permitted by law to be given to chickens or hogs. So all chicken and pork grown in Canada — Central Park Farms’ meat included — is hormone free.

However, a lot of chicken and pork sold in grocery stores are imported from other countries, in which case it may have added hormones.

In Canada, hormones are permitted in beef cows; however we choose to raise hormone-free beef.

Central Park Farms chicken, pork, beef, and eggs are hormone free!

What do you feed your chicken?

Our poultry — both our meat birds and our egg layers — are fed a certified non-GMO feed. For more information on our poultry feed, check out their website.

Aside from their non-GMO feed, they also consume anything they can scratch up from their pasture including grass and bugs.

What do you mean by no animal by-products in the feed?

Some feeds contain animal by products such as tallow — animal fat — and/or meat and bonemeal. Our animals are not fed any animal byproducts.

Why is your meat so affordable?

We get this one a lot — Especially after a new client tries our chicken. Find out more about why we’ve priced ourselves so competitively, here.

Where are your animals processed?

All our animals are processed at a federally and provincially inspected plant in the Fraser Valley.
