Parkinson Canada provides services and education to people living with Parkinson’s disease, their families, and the healthcare professionals who treat them.
Burnbrae Farms and Parkinson Canada promote overall brain health for Canadians, and specifically those living with Parkinson’s. Evidence suggests that omega-3 fatty acids like those found in fish, spinach, flax and hemp seeds, and omega-3 enriched eggs, may have neuroprotective properties.
Dietitians advise that you can maintain good health when living with Parkinson’s disease by enjoying a variety of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and proteins from poultry, eggs, meat, nuts, seeds fish and beans. Additionally, exercise, drinking fluids and a healthy diet may also help alleviate some of the non-motor symptoms of Parkinson’s.

Burnbrae Farms is proud to produce a variety of nutritionally enhanced eggs, including a line of omega enriched eggs. In some studies, omega-3 fats are linked to improved cognitive function. Omega-3 fats are found in salmon, trout and other fatty fish; and omega-3 enriched eggs.
A common question when it comes egg farming and nutritionally enhanced eggs is; how is the level of omega-3 elevated in these eggs? It’s quite simple, the nutritional profile of the egg depends on the specialized diet that the hen is fed. The diet of that hens that lay omega enriched can include flax seed or fish oil, which naturally elevates the omega-3 levels in the eggs.

Scoop on Poop
At Burnbrae Farms manure is not a waste product. It is a valuable asset that comes off of our farms and is rich in nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, all the nutrients you need to grow great crops. We actually have a waiting list of farmers who want to buy our manure to use as organic fertilizer.
Solar Water Heating
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 eggshells, and reuse the water used to wash the eggs. We are constantly researching projects to look at ways to reduce our GHG energy use, one of these projects is the use of solar water heaters in a test run by the Poultry Operations team using solar energy to heat the water used in the office.
