Are you interested in becoming a BC broiler chicken grower? Chicken farming, like other farming businesses in BC, requires commitment, research, hard work and a financial investment.
We have compiled a list of valuable resources here:
When you have done your research and are ready to make the time and financial investment into growing chicken, you have the option to grow for your own personal use, become a permit grower, participate in BCCMB’s New Entrant Grower Program or buy an existing farm and/or quota.
You may grow up to 200 chickens per year for your own personal use.
British Columbia residents can apply to grow up to 2,000 chickens per year for farm direct marketing. The permit administration fee is $20 and permit holders must report their placement and slaughter records. For the application and reporting forms please visit the Permit Growers Forms page. Note: In BC, all meat offered for sale must be processed at a provincially or federally inspected and approved facility.
***BCCMB is not currently accepting any new applications or conducting any draws for New Entrant Grower waiting lists in any region until further notice.***
