Spring Chicks Are Ordered!

Posted by on Feb 10, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Late winter is an exciting time for planning at Aurora Farm.  We are always especially excited to order our heritage chicks from Murray McMurray Hatchery who are celebrating their 100th year anniversary!  Have a look at their website.  For poultry enthusiasts this is a cornucopia of heritage birds and information.

“No Thanks” to Energy East Pipeline in St. Norbert

Posted by on Sep 11, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on “No Thanks” to Energy East Pipeline in St. Norbert

At the end of October, Aurora Farm will have a 20-minute time slots to address the National Energy Board panel reviewing the Energy East Pipeline.  We applied for and got what they call “Intervenor” status. Unlike so many people who care, we will have a say in whether or not bitumen should be transported from Northern Alberta to the East Coast of Canada through a pipeline that is 40-60 years old. The proposed pipeline in our neighbourhood is less than a kilometre away from Aurora Farm. This is the same pipeline that  many folks in St. Norbert witnessed exploding in 1996, taking...
