Pirates’ Pond Farm is small family run farm located in the Comox Valley. We started our farming adventure in 2012 when we purchased an acreage in hopes of growing enough food to feed our family. In the spring of 2013 we acquired our first rooster and have continued to expand ever sense. Although we do not come from a farming background we have realized over the last few years that factors such as global warming, genetically modified organisms, and the use of herbicides, pesticides, synthetic fertilizers and other chemicals are having a significant effect on food security, the environment, and the overall well being of people and animals. As food is an important part of our existence we need to do what we can now to ensure the future health of our family. We started out growing meat and produce for ourselves but soon concluded that we had the means to provide nutritious, conscientious food for others as well.
In 2013 we began experimenting with rabbits and we have enjoyed raising them for meat ever since. We refer to the practice as "Rabbit Ranching" and although our methods are not conventional, our rabbits are treated in a humane manner that we believe more closely resembles their natural environment. They are tended to regularly by our junior farm hands who make sure they receive frequent doses of love and affection. The rabbits are not medicated and are hormone free.
