Frontenac Community Futures Development Corporation (FCFDC) | May 22, 2019

The staff at the Frontenac CFDC and County of Frontenac are working with an individual who is researching the possibility of creating a poultry and rabbit abattoir in South Frontenac. 

For over a decade, farmers have been telling us that there is a need for a local abattoir. A feasibility study for an Eastern Ontario mobile abattoir was complete in 2005. With funding from the County of Frontenac, National Farmers Union Local 316 conducted an abattoir feasibility study in 2011.  There was also some work done around the possibility of creating a co-operative abattoir.

 The staff is excited by the possibility that at long last there may be an abattoir to service local farmers. To make this happen, we need your help.  If you have the need for these services, complete this on-line survey at
