- Our Story
In BC, about 144 registered farmers raise over 3.2 million layer hens, which in turn produce over 84 million dozen eggs. About 80% of BC’s registered egg farmers are located in the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley, 14% in the Interior and Northern BC, and 6% on Vancouver Island. The average BC egg farm raises 22,900 hens. The egg industry contributes over $95 million to the provincial economy.
Our farms operate independently, without government subsidies, and with respect for resources and the products they produce. As a local business, BC egg farmers support our commitment and thus we are able to create a stronger, more viable economy for our current and future generations.
