At Mt. Sicker Family Farm we provide large free-range pens for our emu to ensure proper development and natural immunity to disease. We use a well balanced, locally produced feed formula absent of growth hormones and enhanced with mountain fresh water. We also provide an on-site stress-free processing facility.
On our 10 acre farm in the Cowichan Valley, Vancouver Island, BC we maintain 20 breeding hens, hatch eggs between March and June each year, grow chicks and raise emu juveniles to adults for 16 - 18 months.
Emus love water and swim naturally
Chicks calm with radio playing
Chicks need lots of room to grow.
The health promoting oil comes from processed emu fat, one of the 2 products from harvesting emus, the other being nutritional lean red meat. With all our emu oil production happening on-site, under strictly controlled conditions, Mt. Sicker Family Farm is able to offer high quality and consistent oil to our customers.
"The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings."
