About Blackbird Organics
Blackbird Organics Farm is one of the Similkameen Valley’s top producers of affordable, premium-quality organic chickens, turkeys and eggs. Organic certified and a registered member of the Similkameen Okanagan Organic Producers Association (SOOPA), Blackbird Organics Farm was established in 2006 and is spectacularly located on three acres of farmland in Cawston, British Columbia.
Blackbird Organics farmer Corey Brown has poultry wisdom to share—this is a great chance to check out an organic pastured poultry layer operation! Corey is involved with the Certified Organic Associations of BC and is very knowledgable about organic certification and poultry.
Every afternoon at Blackbird Organics, there’s a chicken rodeo—when Corey lets the birds out to pasture, it’s a joyful thing to watch the birds run free!
Corey will also share his system for sprouting grains seeds for layer hen feed. He’s also experimented with raising black soldier fly larvae for feed.
