We are in the process of finishing a rainwater & snowmelt catchment system

which we started in 2011.The new system is sized to provide enough potable drinking water for our household and all the chickens and turkeys for up to two months.  We have enough roof surface area to catch almost 20 gallons per minute with rainfall of 1/2"  per hour. The rainwater catchment system has long been a dream for us, due to the erratic supply and quality of groundwater in our area. It is very satisfying to bring it to reality. Element Eco-Design is installing this system and they can design and install permaculture gardens and water catchment systems for a variety of purposes.  

Our French birds are just over 4 weeks old and are greatly enjoyed by customers who prefer dark meat. With a much smaller breast:leg ratio than the standard white broilers, it's all about the flavour and tenderness of the meat. We are taking orders for our French chickens for mid-June delivery.  

Rosebank Farms will be at the "Come Taste the Valley" event at Fieldstone Organics

this weekend with Sicilian chicken sausage samples. Fieldstone Organics is British Columbia's only certified organic grain handling facility, benefiting local communities by providing delicious whole grains, legumes & seeds for bulk, wholesale and retail consumers. Fieldstone Organics website

"Fruit pomaces to improve immunity and health of organic chickens

Organic chicken production in Canada has grown substantially in the past decade in response to consumer demand for non-conventionally produced products. However, chicken health and food safety hazards associated with organic production from farm-to-fork remain important issues for this industry." Full Article: Organic Agriculture Centre of Canada
