The Boar & Chick is located on 50 Acres in the quaint town of Troy, Ontario, just 20 minutes northwest of downtown Hamilton. Originally settled by the Hunter Family, this farm has gone through many changes during its lifetime. It is currently owned and operated by Tania and Mark Veenstra along with their 2 daughters Heidi & Claire.
The Boar & Chick specializes is Purebred Berkshire Pigs. The Berkshire is a heritage breed from Central England. Because these pigs spend most of the year living outside, their black skin and coats are essential, especially in the summertime to avoid sunburn.
We are primarily in the business of providing breeding and weaned stock. Our days of selling meat to the general public through Farmer’s Market’s or Direct Farm Sales has come to an end. If you are interested purchasing purebred weaned or breeding stock for you and your family please contact us, we would be delighted to help you!
Our farm is a welcoming place of fun and laughter. Have a look around and see how we spend our time. We are inspired by the Traditional Family Farm and seek to have a place where everyone is welcome.
