2018 Pickup Dates

Hello everyone!

The birds are well ahead of schedule! The time has thus come to let you all know when you can come out to the farm to pick them up! I will be emailing/phoning/Facebook Messaging all customers directly with our address and other details.

The birds may be picked up August the 1st, and August the 2nd (Wednesday and Thursday), from 5 – 9 PM. If you can’t make it, no worries. Let me know and other times can be arranged.

New Features and Products coming Spring of 2018

Sonshine Acre Chicken Meats is pleased to let you know we will be announcing two new ways of serving you, and potentially one new product! We will be announcing all three in the next few weeks. A core pillar of our business model is receiving feedback from our customers, and then acting on what we hear. Over the years, we have been approached by many wishing to see the inclusion of all three things we will be implementing.

Doing this will help you in two areas. First, it will save you time. Second, it will be more convenient. We are really excited about what is coming up, and make sure to follow us or like us on Facebook (https://facebook.com/sonshineacrechickenmeats/) to keep up-to-date on what’s coming!



Winter Operations

Hey Everyone!

We have had a great year this year! All the birds were completely sold out, and we even have people signing up for the 2018 season. The lists are starting to fill up, and you are free to order anytime from now until well into the Spring, when we resume operations.

Sonshine Acre Chicken Meats does not sell fresh chicken in the winter. Why? The birds are raised naturally – thus they spend most of their life outdoors. We like to raise our birds as “down to earth” as possible, and so we raise them outdoors during the Spring to Fall. We also do not have the facility to run a winter operation.

As we wrap up this year, we do want to hear from you! I am always looking at tweaking the food we give them, grass we feed them, and other things to make them taste even better. This is our fourth year of operation, and I would love to hear comments and feedback from you – so look for an email, text, or FB message from me asking how you thought our meat was 🙂

I would  encourage you to continue following us on Facebook, and here on the website as well. 2018 is going to be another great year and we want you to stay in the loop about what is happening!

As they say in Italian,

Buon Appetito!



To our valued customers,

All our meat chickens are now sold out for 2017. We will attempt to fulfill all pre-orders next week during the pickup dates.

For those who want birds, you are more then welcome to pre-order for the first batch of 2018. We will populate the lists on a first-come-first serve basis (as usual).

If (for whatever reason) a pre-order is not fulfilled. Those in the list for the 2018 batch will be contacted and asked if they would like the bird(s).

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to email or FB message us!

Foodland Ontario Certification

Sonshine Acre Chicken Meats is now Foodland Ontario Certified.

What does this mean?

It means our meat has met Foodland Ontario standards, mainly, Foodland has officially verified that we buy, raise, feed, and process our meat in the province of Ontario.

Why is this important?

It is important to us because we always want to keep and maintain your trust – this is another way of letting you know that we keep (and will continue to) keep our products in Ontario.

Will there be any change in Marketing?

Yes. We can now display the Foodland Logo on our products, brochures, and farm. Look out for the new logo on-farm in October!
