FREE RANGE MEATS
Holdanca Farms is a family owned and operated facility,specializing
in the production of pasture raised free range meat and eggs. Under the
direction and management of John Duynisveld and his family, the farm
not only produces an inspected product free from antibiotics, chemicals
and meat by-products, but also strives to educate and inform consumers
in the safe and ethical practices that free range production ensures.
As both a career farmer and scientist, John puts his dedication and scientific
research to the test. Winner of the 1999 Governor General Award for his
academic achievements in environmental research, John endeavors to
create a responsible stewardship by implementing a more natural approach
to farming than many of today's producers currently use, primarily in the
use of pasturing and free range practices.
All livestock are raised on feeds free of antibiotics, animal by-products
and growth hormones. Access to fresh air, green grass and sunshine
ensures a healthier and more humane method of producing a quality
product. All livestock are processed at government inspected facilities
and are certified free range. The guidelines for the 'free range' designation
were developed by provincial poultry marketing boards and all other
Holdanca Farm produce are voluntarily raised under the same guidelines.
