The DeeKayTee Ranch located in the Comox Valley is operated by Dan and Maggie Thran and eldest son Ryan. It is a family operation started in 1926 by Horst and Anna Thran.
Meat chickens are raised in covered “tow-a-longs” on the hay fields. These movable shelters provide comfort from the elements, protection from predators and access to fresh grass every couple of days. A vegetable based feed is used as a supplement and the chickens are processed at a government inspected abattoir in Coombs.
