By Brett Ruffell

Brightside Poultry's Richard Boer of Chilliwack, B.C.

Richard Boer built a diverse poultry farming business from the ground up. It encompasses specialty chicken, layers, pullets and an innovative retail store with a unique vending machine for egg purchases. He also takes time to give back, including volunteering at an egg farm in Africa.

In the final instalment of Canadian Poultry’s Top 4 Under 40 podcast series, editor Brett Ruffell talks to Boer about starting out in the broiler business, expanding into layers and his innovative retail store.

Canadian Poultry launched the Top 4 Under 40 program this year to recognize young poultry leaders. Four finalists are chosen based on their on-farm leadership, innovation and advocacy. We then recognize them in this Top 4 Under 40 podcast series.
