Farm Gate Sales
Rhyant Rock Farms sells directly to you as a customer. We encourage you to come to the farm and see the animals here. If you are unable to come to the farm, we will work with you to find shipping solutions that are cost effective.
I have both Soay and Katahdin available for meat sales. All of my lambs are raised on pasture and have limited access to oats over the winter. They are managed in a rotational grazing system to optimize grass production and soil health. Animals for consumption are never given antibiotics and no animals are administered hormones.
The low cholesterol heritage meat of the Soay is a delicacy for personal consumption, gourmet meat markets and restaurants.
Lambs are sold by the half or whole animals and will be butchered at a provincially inspected facility as per your cutting instructions.
Hatching eggs are available for purchase from May 1 to September 30 (weather dependent). I ship collect via Purolator courier ground shipments only. I have been informed by Purolator that air shipments are not fully pressurized and the eggs will freeze. I do ship across Canada, but keep in mind if you are in the Maritime provinces it may take up to 8 days for a shipment to arrive. If you live in a remote area, they will not ship to your door, they may only have pick-ups at a depot. If I ship collect, there is only depot pickup. If you want it shipped to a residence or business, you must prepay for the shipping. NOTE: Shipments to Newfoundland-Purolator only ships to St John's, then they ship via Canada Post. If you are not able to drive to St. John's, I will not to ship there.
To reserve eggs, a 20% non-refundable deposit is required, which will be returned if the order cannot be filled. The balance of the payment must be made before eggs will be shipped.
If you are interested in purchasing a breeding flock please contact me for further information. To reserve lambs, a non-refundable deposit is required, which will be returned if the order cannot be filled.
Rhyant Rock Farms sells day old Icelandic chicks as well as older chicks and occationally hens. If you would like sexed chicks there is no way to determine sexes when the birds are young-you have to wait for them to mature!
To reserve chicks, a 20% non-refundable deposit is required, which will be returned if the order cannot be filled. The balance of the payment must be made before picking up the birds.
Live birds will not be shipped, they are only available for pick up at the farm.
