Meet Our Farmers: Shawn Harman

Saskatchewan 3rd Generation Egg Farmers

Shawn Harman grew up on the family farm in Saskatchewan. He is now the third generation of Harmans to produce fresh Canadian eggs.

Egg farming is a family affair for the Harmans. Shawn’s dad Bert and his sister Dana Haynes are both involved in the family business, which includes the production of various specialty eggs.

Omega-3 eggs provide an additional source of omega-3 fatty acids. To produce these eggs, some hens are fed a diet that includes flaxseed, as flaxseed contains omega-3 fatty acids. Other hens have vitamin D added to their feed, and they lay eggs with a higher level of this vitamin.

“We’re proud to provide options for Canadians, but no matter which type of egg they choose, they’re getting a high-quality, low-cost food with great nutritional value,” Shawn explains.
