Grade Eggs Locally!
Currie’s Corner Farm is now approved Egg Grading Station O-401 and is available to fellow farmers wishing to expand their egg sales into other markets, including restaurants, stores, farmer’s markets and even food banks. Located in Huntsville Muskoka we offer the convenience of a local, cost effective solution for egg producers farms in Muskoka and surrounding areas.
Additionally, at Currie’s Corner Farm we also sell fresh eggs and chicken on a self serve honour system basis.
Currie’s Corner Farm, owned and operated by Brian and Andrea Currie, began operations in the Muskoka town of Huntsville, Ontario in 2014, and is dedicated to the ethical raising of livestock in a free range environment. The farm consists of 107 acres most of which is forest, with approximately 40 acres of usable fields.
The name “Currie’s Corner” is in memory of my father’s farm in Bardsville, part of the Faulkenburg area also in Muskoka, which he managed to carve out a successful living with dairy cattle. Today there is not a single dairy farm left in Muskoka.
As the current owner I came from a 45 year career in the software development industry, including the ownership of a software company servicing the education market place for 25 of those years. In late 2010, I sold my business and retired. On retiring it soon became obvious to me that there’s more to retirement than playing golf and traveling, so when an opportunity arose to purchase an old dormant farm on Lake Vernon in Huntsville we jumped at it. The first years here have been focused on renovating buildings, fences and fields, then experimenting with different options in gardening and livestock.
Our current farm began selling eggs and chicken. We now focus on laying chickens and beef cattle. Then as an extension of our egg production, we saw a local need to have an egg grading service available to ourselves as well as farms in Muskoka and surrounding areas.
In an effort to qualify to grade eggs, it was necessary to comply with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) requirements involved with both general food handling rules as well as those specific to grading eggs. Our official license was granted in early August 2019.
