Farmcrest Foods has never forgotten its beginnings – family is what got them started, and family keeps them going. The Bell and Bird families, hailing from Ireland, they are third generation farmers. Hard work and new ideas – is what brought them to Salmon Arm. Farming the land and raising chicken on the same property, and as the families grew, so has the farm.
Today they continue to supply quality chicken products to British Columbians. Farmcrest Foods employs approximately 40 people. They operate a primary processing facility in Salmon Arm.
