It all starts with the right location
The history of Château Galicia begins at Snyatynska Nova, a poultry farm located in a pristine region of the Western Ukraine. Here, surrounded by rich nature and pure mineral springs, our geese get all the care they need, while adherence to the European production and safety standards ensures the highest quality of our products.

Poultry Farm:

Snyatyn city,
Château Galicia production
  • The only producer of foie gras and goose delicacies in Ukraine
  • Manufacturing standards on a par with the leading manufacturers from France and Hungary
  • Located in a pollution-free region of the country, far from industrial production
Snyatynska Nova is a part of MHP, the largest agroindustrial company in Ukraine and one of the leaders in poultry production in Europe.

Natural Сonditions:

  • The poultry farm is located in the foothills of the Carpathians
  • Mountains safely protect the farm from foul weather providing mild climate throughout the year
  • Natural diversity, abundance of precipitation and mountain streams create a unique ecosystem which is perfect for poultry production.
Thorough care every day – from an egg to an adult bird
Snyatynska Nova farm nurtures a special breed of geese – Babolna Grey Landes. The farm assures all the conditions required for the comfortable nurturing of poultry at each stage of its life.

Breeder:

3 sites for 15000 birds
  • Twice a year we import newborn goslings from Hungary or France which are grown in our poultry house.
  • Preparation for the reception of goslings is an especially crucial stage. The poultry farm is thoroughly cleaned before every arrival. The premises are completely disinfected, walls freshly whitewashed, and the flooring is entirely renewed. Typically, the preparation period lasts at least 21 days.
  • Later these goslings will become breeders for new stock.

Incubators:

A hatchery for 100 000 eggs
  • The incubation process is fully automated and close to natural. Thus, goslings are hatched in the best possible conditions.
  • 30 days is the time which passes from placement of eggs into an incubator until goslings are hatched.
  • Incubation facilities are equipped with temperature and humidity sensors, as well as a ventilation system.

Poultry houses:

4 coop areas for the final flock of 125 000 birds
  • We nurture our birds in a natural environment and methodology without the use of any stimulants. The sun, fresh air, ecological food and natural artesian water all guarantee purely healthy growth.
  • Sunflower husk, which is a byproduct of the feed production, is used as bedding in our poultry houses. Sunflower husks protect geese from cold and humidity. Before placement and distribution into a poultry house, husks are thermally processed and disinfected.
  • The perfect microclimate is created in poultry houses by hourly computerized control of the temperature, humidity and oxygen levels.
  • Maturation of our geese lasts for about three months. Most of their time is spent outside in the fields of poultry farm with a lake.
  • Survival rate for our goslings is 97%.
Appropriate diet is the basis of our geese’s solid health
Throughout the year, our geese are fed both with a balanced feed, containing all necessary vitamins and minerals, and fresh grass.

We produce our own poultry feed

360 hectares is the total area of ​​fields in Ukraine where we grow wheat, corn and canola to produce feed.
Our own four factories produce all the feed we use, so we can absolutely assure that the food for our geese does not contain any antibiotics, growth promoters and genetically modified organisms.
The composition of the feed is selected for each bird depending on its age and the season.
Recipes of feed are compiled in accordance with the best European practices, technologies and experience.
