SPOTLIGHT FEATURE SALE: This Sunday at the Poirier Street Farmers Market Rockweld Farm will be offering a special deal! Stop by their tent on Sunday and ask for the SPOTLIGHT DEAL: 20% off boneless skinless breast strips. (This deal has now expired.)
Q. Why did the chicken cross the road?
Because the rooster saw a hen on the other side…ha ha
Q. Why was receiving SPCA certification important to you?
We became BCSPCA Certified 13 years ago because the care of our chickens is very important to us and having a third party to audit our farm once a year insures that we are maintaining those standards (check the BCSPA website)
Q. What is your most popular product?
Our most popular product is our whole boneless skinless chicken breast.
Q. What is the most commonly asked question in your truck and what is the answer?
“Are you Certified Organic?”
Answer: “No we are not Certified Organic BUT our chickens are FED Certified Organic Feed, and we are BCSPCA Certified. They do not go outside but they have double the square footage, twice the feeders and waterers and 8 hours of complete darkness. (AND we play country music for them…:)
Q. Why do you think farmers markets are important in the community?
We think farmers markets are very important because it makes it possible for the community to buy local, healthy products. Also because they are FUN (going to the grocery store is not fun).
And it’s great for kids to see where their food is coming from. They make people in the community feel like they are a part of something – supporting the local farmers and growers. Local…Healthy…Ethical…is our motto!
