Why Visit Fox Ridge Farm?
Our farm has a wide variety of animals that kids can see, help feed and interact with. We have a large number of pigs of different ages, chickens, turkeys and goats. Kids can learn about the Loop program with Super Store that diverts food waste from the landfill to local farms. They can also learn about how we compost our manure, as well as our animal husbandry practices.

About our Farm
The Yukon is in demand of more pork, so we are developing a new farm to meet demand and provide food security for the Yukon. Our main focus is on breeding sows, selling piglets to other farmers, and providing food processors, restaurants and stores with quality pork. We also raise laying hens to sell farm fresh eggs and raise free range chickens and turkeys. The kids will be able to interact with chickens, turkeys, pigs and goats.
We are part of the Loop program with Super Store which provides farmers with unsaleable food. We recycle all the plastic, tin and cardboard from this program that otherwise would be destined for the landfill. The kids can feed pigs and chickens the Loop food and help separate and recycle the packaging. We will have interactive activities for kids to learn examples of unlikely products that are made from pigs. Older kids can go in pens with large pigs, learn about our farm practices and breeding program, and if the timing is right could see how we vaccinate and care for our piglets.
