Burnbrae Farms is a Canadian company, proudly owned and operated by the Hudson family since 1891. It all began when Joseph and Jean Hudson purchased a 100-acre mixed dairy farm in a small village of Lyn, just outside of Brockville. Hens were introduced in 1943 and became the exclusive focus on the farm in the mid-60s. Since then, Burnbrae Farms continued to grow and the Company now has grading facilities in 5 provinces, working in partnership with local egg farmers. Our eggs and egg products can be found in your local grocery store, restaurants, food-service operations and homes across Canada.

Reducing By-Products and Greenhouse Gas Emissions with Cardboard Balers
At Burnbrae Farms we are proud to produce nutritious affordable eggs for Canadians while working to protect and enrich the environment. As part of that commitment, we closely monitor energy and water use, divert waste from landfills, recycle and compost egg shells, and reuse the water used to wash the eggs. One of our major commitments is our extensive program for reusing and recycling cardboard and plastic, done through baling our waste.
The Buzz About Bee Lawns
The struggling bee populations have gained a lot of attention in the news the last few years. You may have come across some of these articles and thought “That’s not happening, I see lots of bees flying around in the summertime”, but the reality is, wild bees in Canada are at a high risk of suffering devastating population declines. It has been estimated that about a quarter to a third of wild bee species in Canada are at risk of extinction due to climate change, insecticide use and habitat loss. This issue is not just isolated to Canada, bee populations are declining world-wide.
