Welcome to Sullindeo Farm and Naturescapes Gardens
We are an urban farm in Westsyde, Kamloops British Columbia
Why Choose Pasture Raised Poultry?
Truly sustainable livestock farming requires the use of a pasture-based system. At Sullindeo Farm, our pasture-raised animals roam freely in their natural environment where they’re able to eat nutritious grasses and other plants that their bodies are adapted to digest.
In addition to dramatically improving the welfare of farm animals, pasturing also helps reduce environmental damage, and yields meat, eggs, and dairy products that are tastier and more nutritious than foods produced in more intensive production systems.
Poultry are originally forest dwelling species. We notice that our Sullindeo Farm chickens and turkeys thrive on our mixed woodland/grassland habitat, not only for the cover from aerial predators and the hot Kamloops sun, but also for the mix of insects and vegetation that grow there.

The Health Benefits of Organic Poultry
Our pasture raised chickens and turkeys boast high quality protein, B vitamins, selenium, zinc and phosphorus. Chicken is the most consumed meat in Canada, and we’ve seen this trend continue over the last few years, as consumers become more aware of healthy eating.
Nutritionists indicate chicken breast contains 21 grams of protein per 100 grams; more than other foods, and amino acids (the building blocks of proteins). High protein diets contribute to weight management and the vitamins in organic chicken such as B and D, play a vital role in energy production and formation of strong bones.
Our pasture-raised turkeys are commonly purchased for festive occasions, and the nutrients consumed depend on the cut. Dark meat, as found in the legs or thighs, has more fat and calories than white meat, lending to its rich, moist taste. White meat is slightly dryer and contains more protein, and leftovers make perfect hot turkey sandwiches. Turkey meat is particularly rich in B vitamins, including B3 (niacin for energy production), B6 (pyridoxine for amino acid formation) and B12 – vital for DNA production and red blood cell formation. Turkey is also rich in folate, thiamin and riboflavin. If you’re wondering why you’re a little sleepy after your turkey dinner, that’s the tryptophan working – an essential amino acid that helps make melatonin and serotonin for calming affects.

Birds are only in the barn until they have feathers; then they are let out of the barn on warm days (even as early as 4 days old). After 3 weeks, they are raised outside for the remaining weeks on green grass (free-range). Chickens get their Vitamin D through their feet, outside in the sunshine. At full size, they go straight to the butcher; they never go to a feed lot where they are force fed.
Yes as per government regulations. Your meat bird will look the same as in the local supermarkets.
It takes eight weeks to grow a chicken ready for sale from chicks. You can pre-order for any of the three dates, and they will be fresh (not frozen) on pickup. The later date provides for a bigger chicken from 6 to 7 pounds. Anything not picked up will be frozen when you come for your pickup. We remind our customers by email when to pick up their meat birds. The feed is non-GMO grains, and then grass-fed outdoors on organic fields. No antibiotics are used.
Each year we can have between 400-600 chickens produced (typically 200 in a batch two or even 3 times a year depending on pre-orders). In 2023 we will have a fall batch of chickens after Thanksgiving but NO turkeys.
