Burnbrae Farms, a Canadian family-owned and operated egg company, is launching two new specialty offerings that showcase eggs that come from the company’s Woodstock, Ont., solar-powered farm. The new products will be offered in some grocery stores across Ontario, Quebec, and Atlantic Canada.
The products, Naturegg Solar Free Range and Nature Omega Plus Solar Free Range eggs, will be produced at Burnbrae’s solar-powered farm equipped with high-efficiency motors, lighting, and ventilation. This solar farm is a step towards the company’s goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Burnbrae Farms has been tracking its carbon footprint since 2018. Margaret Hudson, president and CEO of Burnbrae, says they are reducing greenhouse gas emissions and electricity consumption across its farms.
“At Burnbrae Farms, we recognize that a lot goes into a little,” explains Hudson. “As the largest family-owned and operated egg business in Canada, our mission is to produce healthy, great tasting eggs and egg products while respecting the environment, people, and animals in our care. Our Naturegg Solar Free Range products reflect our sustainable and responsible farming practices, our family values, and our commitment to nourishing Canadian communities from coast to coast.”
The new offerings come from free range hens that are housed in open-concept barns with access to the outdoors.
