COVID-19 Update

Covid-19 continues to challenge all of us – in Ontario and across Canada - in our collaborative effort to keep each other safe and healthy. At Yorkshire Valley Farms, our greatest priority is still to ensure the health and wellbeing of our employees, customers, farmers, and suppliers. Recognizing our role as an essential service, our team is committed to providing the safest working conditions across all areas of our business, while striving to maintain a steady supply of organic poultry products for you and your family.

We want to assure you that we continue to closely follow the guidance of the Public Health Agency of Canada and our local government to inform our policies. In addition to the rigorous quality and sanitization protocols that are part of our standard practices, to mitigate Covid-19 risks we have implemented augmented operations with additional safety measures in place, including:

  • Our facilities reinforce hygiene and sanitation as key actions. We have enhanced sanitation in our office areas and common spaces to ensure they are regularly disinfected.
  • Employees who experience symptoms are required to stay at home, or immediately leave work if they experience symptoms.
  • Self-isolation and quarantine policies have been established to support any employee that needs to stay home.
  • Access to our facilities has been restricted to essential visitors who pass screening protocols.
  • In-person meetings have been eliminated, unless absolutely required. All business travel has been cancelled.
  • Employees are encouraged to work from home where possible. For those working onsite, we have created work-spaces that maximize social distance, including the installation of barriers in key common areas.
  • Employee break times are being staggered to allow for sanitation between breaks.
  • Personal Protective Equipment is actively being used by employees.

While this has been a challenging time for all of us in many ways, the resiliency within our staff team, our farmers, our delivery crew, and our retail partners has kept us motivated on a daily basis. We thank them – and you - for the continued support.

Our commitment to organic

When our founding farmers started farming in Ontario many years ago, they chose to grow organically because they knew it would provide the best products for their families and friends.
