A farmer from a small Ottawa-area town is bringing pasture raised chicken to market through a provincial program that aims to fill a rising demand for locally produced chicken and make it easier for small-scale farmers to break into the market.

Kornel Schneider applied for the artisanal chicken program last year and is now in his first summer of pasture-raised chicken production at Ferme Rêveuse in Curran, Ont., about an hour east of Ottawa.
