Cavendish Mink Farm

Proponent: G. C. Furs

Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

  • Project Description:The proponent proposes to expand the mink farm at the former A&D Furs fox farm on Fur Farm Road off Route 80 between Hearts Delight and Cavendish. The addition of four 6 metre by 50 metre sheds plus a 5 metre by 10 metre storage shed and perimeter fencing will enable expansion from the 100 female breeders now on site to 1,000 females and their kits. There will be temporary storage of manure on a concrete pad covered with a tarpaulin with disposal by local farmers spreading on their fields for nutrient value. Feed preparation and pelting will be contracted to existing off-site operations. The proponent plans to start construction on one additional mink shed in the spring of 2006, another in 2007, and the remaining two in 2008.
