Bill van Nes and his family raise Certified Animal Welfare Approved by A Greener World…
Gaston and Michelle Schaeffer raise Certified Animal Welfare Approved by A Greener World (AGW) laying hens at Whiskey Creek Ranch, a first generation, family-run farm, located in the beautiful Peace region of British Columbia.
The Schaeffer’s Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW flock of laying hens are given daily access onto new areas, and continual renewed access to fresh grasses, berries, herbs, insects, soil, and forage. Whiskey Creek Ranch uses rotational grazing practices and sustainable farming techniques, which results in lower environmental impact and a higher quality product.
The Schaeffers say they chose to pursue certification because, “livestock welfare, authenticity, and transparency are most integral to our production.”
Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW pasture-raised chicken eggs from Whiskey Creek Ranch are available directly from the farm Mon- Fri 9am-4pm and weekends by appointment.
