We believe that our food should be clean --- from how the animal is raised to how the meat is handled. All our poultry and livestock are raised in a humane, low stress environment on a healthy vegetarian diet, without the use of growth promoting medications or hormones.
Our certifications guarantee you, the consumer, that we do what we say. Pine View Farms is certified through the On Farm Food Safety Assurance Program for Free Range Production to emphasize health, cleanliness and safety through every step of the animal’s life. This program has been granted recognition by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) for promoting safe food production and animal welfare at the farm gate.
Clean meat is also a result of how the animals are processed in the butcher shop --- from animal welfare to food handling, shop cleanliness and refrigeration temperatures. All livestock and poultry are processed at provincially inspected slaughter facilities to ensure that you receive high quality, safe meats products. An inspector, hired through the Ministry of Agriculture, is present during processing and looks at every single animal or bird to monitor all aspects of food production including animal welfare and food safety.
Most importantly, we are "customer verified". That is, you are welcome to come to our farm, ask questions, look around, and learn about the day-to-day activities of farming, craft meat cutting and sausage making.
