We operate a small cow - calf operation. With the help of our fine herd of Hereford and Limousine ladies, and hard working "visiting" bulls, we raise the beef cattle on our farm from birth to processing. To allow for marbling in the beef to develop naturally, we raise the beef to 25 to 28 months before processing. We process at a local abattoir, who has all the meat inspected, custom processed to our (and your) specifications, packaged and frozen. We make our living selling locally and do the same when purchasing. To us, every dollar we spend is a decision. We purchase, where possible, feed, animals, straw, pasture seed, and minerals from local farmers or suppliers. Our supplier in Elmira, Ontario is located farthest from our Farm, meeting the needs of our farm entire operation within 200 kms. We sell our beef & pork by the packaged pound, not the hanging weight of the animal. If you purchase meat by the hanging weight, you are paying for approximately 20 to 25% waste, like bones, gristle or unusable parts that are wasted in the to get to the final cut & wrapped.
