Scraps Farm (Aylmer, ON)
Scraps Farm is an animal sanctuary for rescued farm animals, operating south of Aylmer ON. The farm is home to over 80 animals rescued from conventional farms; goats, pigs, sheep, a lovely cow named Vixen, and numerous chickens and ducks.
These animals come from all manner of backgrounds, but at Scraps they live out their natural lives in peace and freedom.
The chickens who produce "Sanctuary Eggs" are rescued mostly from conventional battery farms. At Scraps farm, these chickens re-learn how to be birds.. pecking in the grass, having sand baths and feeling the sunshine on their feathers. All of the chickens range free on 30+ acres, eating a natural diet of grubs, insects and vegetation, supplemented with conventional chicken feed. The eggs they lay are collected as gifts, and no forced egg production is used.
All of the funds raised by the sale of Sanctuary Eggs is used towards the feeding, veterinary care and infrastructure needed to support our motley crew of animals.
