Meet BC Chicken Farmers Mark

Meet Mark

Mark farms with his wife and four children. His favourite way to eat chicken is grilled on the barbecue, crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside.

What is your favourite thing about being a chicken farmer?

My favourite thing about chicken farming is working close to home and growing a great product for the people around me.

How did you get into chicken farming?

I got into chicken farming about 8 years ago as part of the New Entrance Program that BC has.

Describe a typical day for you on your chicken farm.

A typical day on my farm is getting out to the barns and checking on the birds, doing maintenance around the farm, and in the spring we’re putting a crop in and farming the land.

Describe your experience on set for the Chicken Squad campaign.

Filming the Chicken Squad campaign was a great way to see how the film industry works and how much time is put into a very short scene. It was great being part of the cast.

What do you like to do outside of the farm?

Outside of farming I coach my son’s hockey team, am Vice President of the local soccer association and also work as a Director for the Chicken Growers’ Association .Our family loves traveling, biking, quading, and playing games.
