White Feather Farms – Hubert Schillings & Family
Hubert Schillings is a second-generation egg and pullet farmer in Oshawa, ON. Passionate about community, food and farming, Hubert is proud to produce high-quality eggs for local Ontario communities.
White Feather Farms Inc. began in 1953 when Hubert’s parents emigrated from the Netherlands, settling in Port Perry. Hubert has been an egg farmer all his life, having moved to their current farm when he was just seven years old and now being there for over 40 years, eventually taking over the business with his sister. His wife, Cindy, and their son Joel are actively involved in the family farm as well, allowing their business to continue to grow. The family farm has expanded since then with over 100,000 birds consisting of pullets, hens, and broilers.
Hubert connects with the local community in his retail shop, where he sells eggs and chats with local community members. His favourite part of farming is raising the young hens, known as pullets. Raising the next generation of egg farmers, Hubert provides for his own family by providing eggs to others. His favourite way to eat eggs in the morning is over easy!
