Who We Are
Our names are Rick and Trisha LaJambe and we have a small farm producing farm-fresh eggs in South Surrey, BC. A few years back, we found ourselves looking for a better way to feed our family. We were not happy with the status quo of commercial food production, especially the treatment of animals. The constant uncertainty of what was going into our food led us to decide to begin taking control of our own food production. It's like the old saying goes: "If you want something done right, you've got to do it yourself."
Since we already had three children, we figured raising a few more animals couldn't be too hard.
We began our farm in the early spring of 2016 with our first 8 adult Swedish ducks. Our flock has expanded since then to also include many other breeds of duck as well as chickens and geese. We now run around 180 ducks for egg production and breeding. Our birds free-range on pasture and are provided with feed that contains no soy or GMO ingredients. We promote the natural behaviours of our birds, especially their desire to forage for themselves. Fresh swimming water is provided for them every day to promote grooming and good health.
Our ultimate aim is to expand our flock and other farm offerings to the point where we can produce wholesome food products for our local community as our full time occupation.
Where We Are
We are located 40 km from Vancouver, just south of the community of Cloverdale. Our farm can be accessed by driving northbound on Hwy 15 from 32nd Avenue. Our driveway is just before 40th Avenue. Just look for the Duck Egg sign!
