Why did you choose to become an egg farmer?

I grew up on an egg farm and enjoyed the responsibilities as a kid going to the barn with my parents. I still enjoy going to the barn every day, taking care of the hens and doing the daily chores.

Why is hen care important to you?

Hens in Ontario are kept in a safe environment and provided with everything they need. Canadian egg farmers are held to some of the highest standards in the world with a strict Animal Care Program regulated throughout the country.

Why did you love growing up on an egg farm?

Growing up on an egg farm was very special. I got to spend a lot of quality time with my family working on the farm and from a young age I learned a lot about work ethic and responsibilities. I hope to pass that experience on to our children as well.
