Founder of Copper Mountain Farms?
Born and raised on a farm, Daryl grew up valuing and appreciating the importance of raising livestock for family consumption.
What started out as a healthier way of putting dinner on the table quickly became a serious passion for him. Many of us reminisce of the tastes of our favorite foods, taking us back to our childhood and happy memories spent around the dinner table with family and friends. Daryl made it his personal goal to bring back those amazing memories and flavors of the past by raising chickens and turkeys the most natural way possible.
Daryl's life has since taken a change of direction but his same values continue today as Copper Mountain has moved location a few kilometers west. Daryl continues to be involved in the business and you can still contact him to order your chickens and turkeys.
Josee grew up on a farm in Northern Alberta, her family also raised meat birds, meat rabbits and turkeys for the family to eat and she remembers vividly processing day.
Josee and Todd moved to Kamloops for work in 1998 and purchased their 20 acre farm in Cherry Creek in 2004. The farm began with horses, then sheep were introduced around the time their daughter Jensen was born. Shortly after that they too wanted to be able to provide good wholesome meat for their family aside from lamb so they started growing chickens. The first batch was a heritage breed that they processed on site. They quickly and sadly learned that if you want meat a cornish chicken is the way to go and have been growing birds since 2008.
Over the years a friendship grew between the two families and in early 2017 conversations occurred about partnering in Copper Mountain and it was agreed upon that production and the Abattoir that Daryl had just built would move location to the Lang farm a few km's west.
Daryl continues to be involved in the marketing and sales and Todd, Josee and Jensen look after production and processing. New to Copper Mountain is Custom Processing for chicken, turkey, rabbit and duck producers in the interior.
