There’s nothing quite like a farm-fresh egg in the morning – well… nothing except eggs fresh from your own backyard!
For years, A Rocha has been providing high-quality eggs from our pastured flocks in Surrey, BC. Today the farm team is working to develop the flock’s genetics. We’re cross-breeding the best performing birds to meet a more sustainable production system.
We now offer heritage birds for folks looking to produce home-grown eggs in your own backyard!
Breeding Quality Birds
Minimal Grain Feed: Historically, poultry were more self-sufficient – eating bugs, grass, crop residues and damaged fruit. You could say they turned food people couldn’t eat into eggs and meat. One of our goals is to reclaim hardy foraging genetics that can take advantage of free range opportunities. Whether foraging in a backyard lot or a 50 acre farm, free-range birds reduce feed costs and still lay 200-250 eggs a year.
Self Replication: A good mother hen can hatch out eggs at a higher success rate. She can also keep her chicks outdoors and eating live, natural foods from day one. We breed to retain mothering instincts, which is valuable if you want a self-sustaining flock.
