Greendale Heritage Farm is a beautiful family farm on the Sumas Prairie in the Greendale area of Chilliwack, B.C. We breed and raise rare Heritage Breed Poultry, custom hatch chicks and ship fertile hatching eggs anywhere in Canada . Our mission is to share these rare and disappearing breeds with other like minded poultry fanciers. In doing so, we are helping re-populate rare breed heritage Poultry in Canada.
We start with heritage breeds, not modern hybrids which are genetically engineered for factory farms. Some of the poultry breeds we have are new to Canada, other breeds are in the project stage. Project stage is where you can help, it is where we have a new colour of a specific breed and now need to work on improving the bird conformation to meet the APA standard.
Our poultry and animals are provided with the best of everything. They live in free range settings amidst lush green grass, valleys and mountains. We have the best water in B.C. for them to drink. Our chickens are fed Whole Earth feed. We give them plenty of room to grow and roam and thereby act according to their natural inclinations. Our chickens live in large pens with comfortable coops or free-range. Our cows graze on natural grass untouched by synthetic fertilizers or herbicides.
Since starting this venture in 2009 we have grown to meet the demands of the many poultry enthusiasts. If you are looking for stunning, quality birds, you have found them. When you buy poultry or hatching eggs from Greendale Heritage Farm, you’ll see the difference. The many breeds of poultry we have are happy & healthy on our beautiful farm. Our birds are a testament of what you get when you take care and raise animals the right way, the Greendale Heritage Farm way.
We attribute our success to a faith and trust in God, who created these beautiful birds and has given us the privilege to be caretakers of them.
“In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.”
