Welcome to Skara Brae Farms
Our 100 acre farm near Campbellford, in Northumberland County has become home to over 20 varieties of poultry. What started out as a family project by two veterinarians, to engage our children in the world of animal husbandry, has rapidly become a passion. We have breeds chosen for a variety of reasons. We began with cold-hardy breeds such as the Canadian Chantecler. The wide variety of egg colours beckoned and blue Ameraucana eggs were joined by the chocolate of Marans, the terracotta of Barnevelders, and many other shades.
We are committed to providing healthy poultry of excellent quality, so that these breeds may continue to be a vibrant part of Canadian agriculture. We are striving for APA standards in our birds, along with production qualities as dual-purpose breeds.
Hatching eggs, chicks, and occasionally adult birds are available for sale.
We have imported several new breeds from the U.S.. We are pleased to present Jubilee Orpingtons, Cream Legbars, Lemon Cuckoo Orpingtons, and Swedish Flower Hens.
