Meet 5 Chicks and a Farmer

Making Fresh, Local Food Easy

5 Chicks Family

5 Chicks and a Farmer is a family farm near New Hamburg, owned and operated by John and Sarah Moylan.  

5Chicks_logo_blackThey have been on their farm since 2009 and are thrilled at the opportunity to provide quality food to Ontario restaurateurs.

In 2017 they were excited to start selling to the public. They have 4 young daughters who, along with Sarah, make up the "5 chicks."

John grew up on a small family farm in Southwestern Ontario where his family raised pigs and cattle and grew crops. As farming became more and more specialized, that type of mixed farm has become less common. However, John has never lost his love for raising animals and the satisfaction that comes from growing your own food ethically and humanely.

5 Chicks is proud to participate in the Artisanal Chicken Program—designed by Chicken Farmers of Ontario—to allow small farms to serve the restaurant and retail industry with  local, niche market specialty chicken.  


From May to October 5 Chicks produces pasture raised chicken which is available fresh or frozen during the season or frozen in the off season.

They also offer pasture raised turkey, heritage breed pork and grain finished beef.
