FAQ

What is Farm Gate Sales?

Farm Gate Sales is the term used for the sale of a live animal directly from the farmer. Information about Farm Gate and Inspected Meats in the Yukon can be found here. The service fee for growing, slaughter (killing/dressing) and packaging of your animal will be added to your final invoice.

For a hands-on learning approach, we are happy to show you how to slaughter and/or butcher your chicken at our farm. Bring the family and learn the next steps toward food sovereignty for your household!


Can I get my chicken butchered?

How do I go about buying a side of pork?

We offer sales of pork by the side. You purchase the portion of the animal with a deposit and the final balance is charged upon the slaughter hanging weight. All our pork is slaughtered and inspected using YG’s Mobile Abattoir in Whitehorse and in Dawson. We will help you plan a butchering arrangement with our pre-booked butchers (BonTon & Co. and Y-Bar Meats). If you wish to make alternate butcher arrangements, or home butcher — just let us know.


How many chickens can I order, and can I order a whole pig?

You can order as many chickens as you would like, and a whole pig is two sides.


A side of pork is too much for me, and whole turkeys are too big, can I by less?

Our inspected sides of pork are approximately 100lb/side and inspected turkeys are 18-25lbs. If that is too much, we sell smaller amounts of fresh frozen butchered pork and turkey retail, year-round.
