Bar P Ranch grass-finished beef is located 30 minutes south of Calgary at Nanton, Alberta. It is our family’s passion to raise beef for your table that promotes your health, intelligence and longevity without losing sight of tenderness and a tasty product. Our beef isn't certified organic, it is "beyond organic"! We promise you that our beef is free from hormones and antibiotics. These animals have never had grain or any animal by-products. The pasture these cattle graze on and the hay they eat has not had any chemical fertilizer applied. With our grass-fed and finished beef we strive for you to have the best eating experience.

Beef is harvested in the fall between the ages of 24-29 months of age after a spring, summer and fall of grazing on top quality grasses and legumes. They are processed at a local abattoir that is federally inspected. The beeves are dry-aged for a minimum of 21 days to ensure a tender, quality product.

The beef is available in quarters, halves or as a whole beef and is sold by the pound, hanging weight. Each half can be individually cut and customized to our customers’ wants and needs. You can order a whole, a half or a quarter and split it with friends or family. To order, contact us either via phone or email.

Medicine River Luings raises top quality grassfed beef as nature intended. The Luing cattle breed was developed in Scotland to produce high quality, well marbled beef on grass. Our beef is guaranteed free of growth hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, herbicides and feeds containing animal by-products.

Ranching in the beautiful Medicine River valley brings us the responsibility of being custodians of the sensitive riparian areas on our property. Management Intensive Grazing has benefited our seeded pastures and allowed our native / riparian areas to rebound from previous overgrazing. An increasing wildlife population seems to approve of the changes! Our cattle are moved to fresh, quality grass daily throughout the grazing season and in winter are fed a supplementary ration of hay or silage.

To ensure our beef is adequately marbled we only harvest cattle in October. We sell quarter, half, or whole carcases, cut to your specifications, wrapped, frozen and delivered to Calgary, Edmonton or locally. The processing plant can also turn some of your beef into delicious jerky or sausages.

We encourage you to order your beef early as we have a limited supply.

On TK Ranch we believe that nutrient-dense foods offer people a diet that supports good health and a strong immune system. We offer consumers dry-aged Alberta grass-fed beef, grass-fed lamb and heritage pasture raised pork. Our cattle and sheep are not fed any grain – we use the pasture model from birth to slaughter.

Our animals are born, raised and fed outside on large native grass pastures. Unlike organic and conventional grain finished beef and lamb, our animals are never confined in feedlots. Our animals never receive antibiotics, animal by-products, chemical insecticides, growth hormones or ionophores. Our land is never sprayed with chemical herbicides, pesticides or fertilizers.

We fence sensitive riparian habitat, use solar waterers and manage for endangered and threatened species. We are involved with wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and release. We have received several awards for our commitment to the environment including the 2010 National Prairie Conservation Award.

We also have a strong commitment to animal welfare – we calve and lamb during the warm spring and summer. We use freeze brands on our cattle, practice low stress livestock handling, and move our animals frequently onto fresh pastures. Our sows are not kept in farrowing or gestation crates – they are allowed to nest naturally and and are not separated from their piglets at any time. Their piglets are not weaned until 12 weeks of age. Our beef and pork (and soon lamb) is certified humane by the British Columbia SPCA. We use a small government inspected family owned abattoir and personally handle our animals right to slaughter to ensure they are treated humanely and with respect.

Our products are available retail in Airdrie, Calgary, Edmonton and Stony Plain in several health food stores. Customers can also order direct from us. We personally deliver to our customers located in Edmonton and Calgary and surrounding areas. We ship via refrigerated truck across Canada.

Big Bear Ranch, located near Horsefly in the beautiful Cariboo Region of Central BC, is family owned and operated. We are certified organic by PACS, but our understanding of organic includes more than what can be regulated.We believe in the importance of a holistic balance between land, animals and people. This starts with naturally fertile soil to grow a variety of healthy plants, which our animals graze to provide us with nutritious and great tasting meat. An organic place has to achieve sustainability through biodiversity in the landscape, in the plants and crops and in the species raised.

We don’t feed grain to ruminants and grass finish our beef with a rotational grazing system. Our humane animal husbandry includes low stress handling techniques and grazing on big pastures. We want the animals to be able to live as close as possible to Mother Nature’s plan: cows calve on green grass, pigs grow up in large pastures with trees and wallows, chicken and turkeys are truly raised free range and horses roam on big meadows.

We sell grass fed beef and pasture raised pork as a whole as well as in halves, quarters, and by the cut. Ground beef, European style Bratwurst and pet food are also available. Broadbreasted Bronze Turkeys are available in fall, but have to be preordered. Feel free to visit us at the ranch or have a look at our website.

Gort’s Gouda Cheese Farm opened its doors in 1983. At first we made Gouda Cheese and Quark. Quark is a soft German style cream cheese. As the years passed, we expanded into making Spiced Gouda, Quaso de Prato, Maasdammer, Feta cheese and yogurt. We take pride in the fact that twenty years later our artisan cheese is Certified Organic (by the Pacific Agriculture Certification Society) and is delivered to a variety of locations in the Shuswap, Okanagan, and the lower mainland of British Columbia. Our cheese is also shipped throughout the rest of Canada via Canada Post. (See our website to order on line)

All our products are Certified Organic, but what makes our dairy products so special is that the milk comes from our very own Grass-fed Milking Shorthorns and Brown Swiss cows. The cows get 3 to 6 times more nutrients from grass, than milk from grain fed cows. The major fats present in Grass-fed cows milk are Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) and Omega-3 Fatty Acids. These are considered to be good Fats. Our cows are on Pasture from May until October. They are supplemented with Organic Hay the rest of the year.

Customers are encouraged to come visit our Family Farm, roam around and visit our cows and calves, sample our products or sit in our picnic area and enjoy a cup of Organic coffee and a piece of cheesecake or yogurt smoothie made with our own products in our kitchen.

Lemieux Creek Ranch raises 100% grassfed beef with no antibiotics, no growth hormones and no grain. Our beef comes from pairing two hearty Scottish Breeds – Galloway and Angus. The result is a cross-bred product that is not only good for your health, but it excels in flavour and tenderness.

Les and Chris Yates have been cross-breeding Galloway and Black Angus cattle at Lemieux Creek Ranch for 20 years. The ranch is located in the beautiful Bulkley Valley in west-central British Columbia, near the Town of Telkwa, approximately half way between Prince George and Prince Rupert. Our goal is to raise healthy food from healthy animals. We are a family farm and are proud to provide a healthy alternative to beef products currently sold through the traditional food chain.

We harvest our animals in the late fall or early winter and sell by the whole, half, and quarter. Our production is limited so we encourage advance orders that are guaranteed with a small deposit. Please see "Ordering Information" on our web-site for details and pricing.

We tend the land to ensure the grass is plentiful and nutritious so that from May to November our cattle will thrive on rolling tame pastures and allow us to make high quality winter feed for the cows and calves. We believe the quality of the meat we sell is the result of both the feed and the approach we take to raising our cattle. Our animals are born on the ranch and stay on the premises until harvest.

We have a herd of about 60 dairy cows that we milk morning and evening.

Phil's Farm has been raising pastured poultry in strict adherence to the "Salatin method" since 1998. Chicks arrive at the farm one day old, and from then on I control everything they eat. Just as important, I control what they do not eat, such as no hormones and no antibiotics. After 21 days in the brooder, my chicks are feathered up and ready to move to pasture. This results in a superior tasting, humanely raised chicken.

I sell everything I grow at my farm, including blueberries and raspberries. The best way to contact me is by phone, also check out my website.

Harborside Farm raises and sells beef, pork, chicken, turkey, and goat all on pasture. We have beef ready in the fall, 3 pigs a week, 900 chickens and 100 turkeys in the fall. All of our products can be purchased through the farm. We can also cut and wrap all the products that we sell and make a variety of quality sausage.

As a young family we worry a lot about the food our kids eat, so in turn we do our very best to raise a natural, quality product that we are proud to feed our family. No hormones are used, all the animals are cared for humanely. We were one of the first farms in Manitoba to be Certified by the Winnipeg Humane Society. Making a living right off the farm is so extremely difficult for young farmers. That is why we as a family are committed to try and do something different to change that. Marketing directly to the consumer allows us to maintain a connection with the families that we supply and keep a sustainable business.

HotSun Elk Company raises elk and beef cattle in natural surroundings on a grass and forage diet.

  • We treat the animals once a year with anti-parasite medications, but use no other medications.We raise our animals in a low-stress, natural environment and treat them humanely from birth to market.We protect our streams and other natural water sources from harmful animal impact.We manage the grazing pattern of our animals to enhance the growth of the pasture, the health of the land, and the nutritional value of our products. To do this, we take into account the specific soil conditions, vegetation, altitude, growing season, and temperature range of our climate. When high-quality pasture is not available, we feed the animals stored grasses, which can include hay, haylage, and grass silage. We do not treat our animals with hormones.
  • We do not treat our animals with routine, low-level antibiotics. Those animals that we do treat with antibiotics due to health problems or injury are removed from the program.

We usually process all our animals in the late spring and summer – that’s when the grass and other forages are growing most rapidly and so are the elk and cattle. New growth is always the most tender and delicious. By autumn, our elk begin their breeding season, start losing weight and meat quality deteriorates. If you thought elk taken in the hunting seasons was good, wait ‘til you taste it from the prime season!We supply naturally produced meat products, including:

  • Beef burgerAll cuts of elk meat
  • Elk sausages – several types (let us know what you like)

New Brunswick

At Circle "S" Farm we have a mixed farming operation where we try to work with nature in the raising of crops and animals. Our beef cattle are certified organic and are totally grass fed with our own certified organic pasture, hay and silage. We also have pastured pork and poultry which are not certified organic.

We feed non-organic grain at the moment which has no antibiotics and is non GMO. Since grain makes up the lions share of the diet for both the pigs and chickens, the purchase of organic feed would push the price higher than most would be willing to pay. We give no growth hormones to our animals and all are healthy and happy. We prefer selling the beef by the side or quarter, the pork by the side and the poultry whole. We also have certified organic potatoes, rutabagas (turnips), and raspberries in season.

If you would like to come for a farm visit, have any questions about our farming operation, or are interested in price or availability of product, please feel free to contact us.

At Baer's Natural Beef, in the London, Ontario area, our grassfed beeves live a full, natural life. They are born on this acreage, stay with their mothers, and are weaned onto grass, hay and haylage until they are ready for harvest. The animals are fed exclusively grasses and legumes, which they forage for themselves in the summer, and are supplemented with Kelp Meal, natural trace mineral salt and certified organic minerals.

We follow organic practices carefully, but are not 'Certified Organic.' To our knowledge, this land has never had chemicals applied. We came here in 1989, and removed most of the hawthorn trees in order to better grow grass. Our rotational grazing system minimizes the use of energy burning machinery, making this one of the ‘greenest’ ways to produce high protein, healthy grassfed beef.

Our beef is available by the side, (approximately 300 pounds), warm dressed weight (before processing, in which case it can be cut to your specifications) OR purchase a representative sample, i.e., some of each: roasts, steaks, ground beef, soup bones, stewing beef, sausage, etc., in 25, 50, or 100-pound packages. Call or email for pricing.

CW Acres is a 167-acre ecological farm located in Caistor Centre, Ontario.

Our philosophy is to emulate nature itself. From the moment our calves are born, they are able to freely roam the pastures with the herd on stress-free fields of grass, which they will spend the rest of their lives on. Our cattle are never vaccinated, and never treated with growth hormones or antibiotics, no grain or corn supplements—just a lot of tender care. We deliver our own cattle to the abattoir in our livestock trailer. From start to finish we look after our cattle.

Have you ever questioned where your beef comes from? When you purchase beef products from CW Acres, you are supporting nature’s way of beef production. It’s the healthiest, leanest and most nutritious choice for beef.

Century Game Park has been a family farm since 1837, five generations taking a diversified approach to farming. Inspired by a book called "Grassland" by Richard Manning, we believe that the bison and elk can provide an abundance of food naturally raised for taste and tenderness.

A holistic approach to farming allows us to utilize the grassland to its highest potential and bring forth a harvest of quality meat products that everyone can enjoy. Not only do the bison produce fine food, but leather products as well such as gloves and moccasins.

Tours of the farm are available from May 24th until October 31st. Enjoy a trip through the herds as calves frolic and play. Bring buffalo back home to your table tonight. Encourage the rebuilding of the original cattle by enjoying them.

Dragonfly Garden Farm's Grass-Fed Lamb & Beef ~ Free-Range Pork & Poultry (Chicken, Duck, Goose & Turkey) ~ Game Birds ~ are raised using organic, ecological and sustainable farming principals. Our Season begins in June, and continues until December.

At Dragonfly Garden Farm our animals live outside on pasture, eating various native grasses and plants. Proactive animal management practices, fresh air, green grass, and regular house-keeping, allows us to raise a nice variety of animals on a small scale.

All our animals are given free choice to decide when they go outside, eat, drink or sleep. We provide clean and comfortable housing and ensure our farm practices are respectful of each animal, the land we farm and the environment.

We offer two kinds of CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). The Fall Family CSA is a 200-pound meat sampler which feeds a family of four for 100 meals. The Farm Share CSA is a meat sampler delivered monthly from June to December. We also offer many sizes of Beef & Pork Samplers, custom processing, and Local Meat Samplers which contain a small sample of beef, pork and chicken for first time grass-fed meat eaters.

Farm Tours are always welcome.

It would be our pleasure to be your farmer AND your animal feed, mineral and natural health supplement supplier. Proud to be your Homestead Organics Dealer.

Dreamach Acres is a 200-acre family run farm that focuses on an "all natural" approach to raising our grass fed Irish Dexter herd. Although our farm is not "certified organic," we follow the general principles of being organic: no growth hormones, no antibiotics, and a stress-free, calm environment.

We do not use any chemicals in our pastures, and cattle are not fed grain. Summer months they live on our rotational pastures, and winter months they eat a top quality wrapped hay/forage. Doing things natural does take time, and it takes two years for our Dexter cattle to reach market weight from birth. With their smaller size and slow growth, the meat is excellent tasting, well-marbled, and has a low fat content.

We sell our beef by the whole or half, allowing you to decide how you want it cut/wrapped and frozen. We also sell by the "sampler box" consisting of 2 roasts/4 steaks/5-lbs hamburger, all for $120.00 (great for those without a large freezer). We encourage you to order ahead of time be sure it will be available. Orders can be picked up or delivered in our local area.

We also have chickens and lamb on a spring pre-order basis for fall pickup. Please call the farm if you have questions or wish to place an order.

4 Ponds Farm is where the Probst Family maintains a purebred herd of Scottish Highland cattle. They are grass-fed and naturally raised without hormones, antibiotics or pesticides. This breed is very well adapted and has been kept true to form since recorded history, never loosing their ability to thrive on grass alone. Furthermore, studies show that Highland beef is lower in fat and cholesterol and higher in protein and iron than other beef. The result is richly flavoured and well-marbled beef.

Our beef is dry aged for 21 days and is cut and wrapped to your specifications by the half, and is picked up locally in the Cambridge area. Our animals are generally 18 months old or younger and the sides weigh from 175 to 275 lbs.

The animals are available in the fall after the pasture season. We do take orders all year long due to a limited supply. Sometimes we have a half available from our freezer as well as hamburger by the pound all year long. Occasionally we have whole frozen Muscovy ducks, raised free range where they get a significant part of their diet from insects and grass.

Grandview Farms is a family run farm sitting atop the Beaver Valley and Georgian Bay. We are a Certified Organic farm with over 400 acres of pastures that have been grazed by animals for over 25 years. We raise grass fed beef cattle, angus and Wagyu, as well as pasture raised heritage breeds of pork.

Grandview does a few things differently than any other farm. First, we plant annual grasses to supplement our animals diet through the hot months of the summer. The animals will roam through the tall annual grasses prior to the grasses reaching seed stage, and will therefore be able to gain weight through the hot summer months, an unusual occurrence when pastures tend to stop growing from the heat. Second, we finish our cattle on locally grown apples and pears to promote meat that is not only very balanced nutritionally, but is very well marbled. The result is Pork and Beef that is second to none in terms of taste and nutritional profile (our beef tests at 3.9 to 1, omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids, a rate almost as good as wild game and 300% better than feedlot meat).

We of course do not allow anti-biotics or growth stimulants (hormones) anywhere near our animals and we provide them with the best possible living conditions, including wood lots and ponds for the hot summer days. We focus on animal welfare from birth to slaughter, and take great efforts to make sure that all of our animals live in the most pleasant and humane conditions for their entire lives.

Grandview offers boxed meat ordering (random sampling of cuts), or you can order specific cuts that your family desires. We deliver in the GTA and can ship frozen across Canada. We sell our meat directly through our website or by emailing us at orders@grandviewfarms.ca.

Grass Roots Beef at Hillview Farm is 100% grass fed. The Canadian Galloway cattle are raised on the pastures of a family farm and are fed only a natural diet of pasture and hay. While grazing they are rotated through the pastures of Hillview Farm in southern Grey County, two hours northwest of Toronto.

Managed intensive grazing techniques maximize the quality of the naturally occurring grasses and clovers and help protect the environment by preserving grasslands and habitat for wild life. The hay grown on Hillview Farm is fed during the winter months. No antibiotics, hormones or additives of any kind are fed, and no herbicides are used in this totally grass fed diet. The water from the farm well is pumped to each of the pastures allowing the cattle to drink the same water we do.

Only low-stress, humane cattle management techniques are used on Hillview Farm and visitors enjoy watching the herd being quietly led to new pastures, and grazing fresh grass in familiar surroundings.

While grass finished cattle take a little longer to get to their finished weight than cattle in feedlots, we take the time. Their meat becomes healthier, lower in saturated fats, higher in Omega 3 and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). A 100% grass fed diet also leads to increased levels of Beta Carotene, Vitamin E, and Vitamin C in the beef. Some doctors have begun recommending grass finished beef to families.

The cattle’s rate of growth and quality of their meat will be determined by their natural diet and the richness of their environment, not drugs and food additives.

Grass Roots Beef animals are processed at a nearby small family owned abattoir under government inspection and regulation, then dry aged to maximize the natural flavour benefits of grass finished cattle.

Kitley Beef Farm is located on 100 acres about one hour southwest of Ottawa near the town of Smiths Falls. We have about 50 Rhode Island Red laying hens which we bought as day old chicks. The eggs are available for pickup at the farm gate. Call ahead for availability and price if making a special trip.

They have been fed certified organic feed since birth. From spring to fall they are outside following our beef cattle around the pastures in the "Joel Salatin" method. 

Our pastures are free from any herbicides, fungicides or pesticides. We use no drugs, vaccines or hormones. We use no fertilizers. The cattle fertilize as they move through the pastures. We don’t even have an ATV or a tractor (yet). All inspections are done on foot.

We don’t seed pastures with purchased seed. There are possibly 100 different plants growing and reseeding naturally (even milkweed for the Monarchs), the ultimate salad bar. We divide the pasture into paddocks with moveable fences. Twice a day the cattle move to a new paddock so that they always have fresh grass to eat. Every couple days we move the hens to keep up to the cattle.

At Riverside Acres we are proud to offer grass fed beef and lamb, and pasture raised pork, chicken, and turkey.

Although we have not pursued organic certification, we have chosen not to use chemicals or growth hormones. In addition to foraging in the pasture, our pigs and poultry are fed certified organic grains.

Our grass fed beef and lamb are born and raised on our year-round pasture land. Our cattle and sheep flourish on a 100% grass fed diet and are supplemented with hay during the winter. Our hay is produced on farm to ensure that it has not been sprayed or treated. We practice intensive grazing to maximize our pasture's potential and distribute nutrients more effectively.  

The grass fed beef is available in our 30-pound variety sample box or by the half animal. Our lamb is available by the half (25–30 lbs) or whole (50–60 lbs) lamb. Our beef and lamb are available from mid summer to late fall, depending on the growing season and while supplies last.

Our chickens and turkeys are started in the barn and then moved to the pasture when old enough to survive the elements. They are moved regularly to ensure they always have fresh green grass available to them. Our chickens are available from mid summer to late fall and while supplies last. Chickens can be purchased by the whole or half bird. Our turkeys are available only in the fall and can only be purchased by the whole bird.  

Our pigs are started indoors in the early spring and then moved to our pasture when the temperatures allow. They are then harvested in the late fall and are available in a 30-pound sampler box or by the half or whole animal.

We are available to deliver our products to Kitchener-Waterloo, London, and the surrounding areas. We offer free delivery to these areas if your order is $150 or greater. 

All of our products are processed in government inspected facilities and are only available fully frozen.

At Still Hope Farm our animals are raised on a natural diet of grasses and legumes which are never sprayed with herbicides or pesticides. They are rotated through a series of pastures every 2 to 4 days, giving them constant access to a fresh "salad bar." Their pasture is only supplemented with sea kelp, trace mineral salt mined from an ancient sea bed, and food-grade minerals; they receive no growth promotants, hormones, or antibiotics.

We strive to maintain a stress-free environment for cattle and handlers, which helps to ensure meat tenderness. Our aim is to produce, in an environmentally and ecologically sound manner, a tasty and tender beef which will actually enhance the health of humans and our planet.

Certified Organic* Grass-fed Beef – Our Dexter cattle are a smaller breed known for their ability to convert pasture into healthy meat. Because they are smaller framed, they yield smaller cuts more appropriate for today's palates. Beef is available as sides, split sides, "$100" boxes," and individual cuts. Because sides are most economical to prepare and handle, ordering a side saves you the most money. Sides are cut according to your specifications. All meat is cut, wrapped, and fast-frozen in a provincially inspected facility. Sides range from 150 to 250 lbs. A split side is half the amount of a side, combining cuts from front and back."$100 boxes" contain a combination of 2 or 3 roasts, 2 or 3 packages of steak, and ground beef. The actual price of each box will vary, depending on its specific contents. Buying a box gives you a discount of 10% off the price of individual cuts.

Certified Organic (by Pro-Cert) Poultry – These chickens and turkeys are raised outdoors on green grass and organic grain mix. They receive no growth promotants, hormones, or antibiotics. They are only available for sale at the farm. Send us an email to receive a flyer for price information, or give Chris Litster a call.

All of our meat is processed in a government inspected facility and our beef is dry-aged for a minimum of 21 days to ensure optimum tenderness.

Our pastures and our production methods are certified organic by Organic Crop Producers and Processors (OCPP) meaning that we do not use any synthetic pesticides or fertilizers on our pastures and our animals receive no antibiotics, hormones or pesticides.

Stone Horse Farm produces pastured pork and chicken to order each year. We take orders from March–May and have the frozen, processed meat ready for you to pick-up on the farm in September and October. Chickens are sold whole, and pigs are sold by the side.

Both the pigs and chickens live outside as soon as they are old enough to tolerate weather extremes. This is about 8 weeks of age for the pigs, and 5 weeks of age for the chickens. Both are raised on green, grass pastures, with run-in sheds for shelter at any time. All grain is locally grown and is non-GMO. The livestock is processed by local abattoirs that are provincially inspected. Their entire lives are spent in a stress-free environment with as much sun, fresh air, and non-GMO feed as they wish to eat, along with our fresh well-water. We achieve an especially nutrient-dense meat loaded with healthy fat and flavour with the addition of micro-nutrients including kelp and diatomaceous earth.

Meat is cut, frozen and freezer-wrapped when you pick-up in the fall. We provide a 5-day notice of when your meat will be ready to pick-up. Meat MUST be picked up that day. We are an easy 40-minute drive from Toronto, straight up Highway 400. We are 5 minutes off the highway, between the Cookstown and Barrie exits.

Stone Horse Farm is located on a century farm, first cleared in 1880, that has been worked by small family-owners ever since. We have enjoyed taking on the care of this beautiful old property since 2003. We are dedicated to producing healthy food for our children and yours while making a positive environmental impact.

West Court Farm is owned and operated by Martin and Johanna Driesse. Our organic farm is home to Galloway cattle which are on pasture during grazing season, and baled hay when not able to graze in winter.

Galloway beef is noted for it’s good flavour throughout. The Galloway breed has never been used in the industrial feedlot system, so the genetics are still the way they were created, to finish on pasture.

Currently the meat is sold by mixed 1/4, half or whole animal. Ground beef is available per pound year around as supply lasts.

Wild on the Bruce brings 100% grass-fed elk and bison from the pristine Bruce Peninsula to Toronto residents.

Wild on the Bruce specializes in Canada’s original red meats, elk and bison, raised naturally and grass-fed exclusively. These indigenous grazing animals are best suited to the Canadian climate and remain healthier throughout their lives. As a result, their meat is chemical and drug free, providing optimum nutrition and taste.

The monthly Bruce Box program sustains the local economies of Grey-Bruce by working with family farms, ethical abattoirs and artisan butchers. Regular monthly visits to chosen producers and processors ensure high standards for Wild on the Bruce meats.

Why the Bruce?

Bruce County and The Bruce Peninsula are the most northern part of the Niagara Escarpment where the Bruce Trail ends and the waters flow. Water is the key to the escarpment’s history. 450 million years ago, North America was occupied by a large inland sea that dried up, and its sea creatures died, sinking into the ancient seabed to form the Niagara Escarpment.

Springs bubble up out of the escarpment flowing in to Lake Huron and Georgian Bay. Half way up the Bruce Peninsula, a limestone ridge runs diagonally from Georgian Bay north of Lion’s Head traveling south west to Lake Huron shores. This ancient geological divide determines which way the springs and streams flow: all land north of the ridge contains springs and streams flowing to Lake Huron, and all land to the south of that ridge contains springs and streams flowing into Georgian Bay.

The high mineral content of the escarpment produces excellent mineralized grasses for grazing animals as well as pure spring water for drinking, and Wild on the Bruce believes the unique pristine environment of the Bruce produces some of the best quality foods in Canada.

Grocery Stores: Two Toronto food co-ops will be selling Wild on the Bruce fresh and frozen meats: Karma Food Co-Op Store, 739 Palmerston Avenue, Toronto, ON. and West End Food Co-Op, 1229 Queen Street West, Toronto, ON. In addition, there is a buying club through Karma Food Co-Op stores.

Wilderness Ranch is a family-based entity where raising and producing healthy, nutritious, and sustainable, Black Angus grass fed beef is at the heart and soul of what we do. We believe that raising cattle on grass and keeping them on a grass-based diet all there lives is much more healthy for the animal and then in turn more healthy for the consumer.

Our beef is raised on top quality grass, handled with low stress practices, and we harvest in the late summer/fall to ensure a top quality product of beef that will melt in your mouth.

We take orders for wholes, halves, quarters, 30-pound and 10-pound boxes. An order for a quarter or larger you are able to specify your own cutting instructions. We also have all beef summer sausage, and summer sizzling burgers.

Miracle Farms is a no-spray apple orchard which maximizes the sun's bounty by using the lush grass to grow sheep and pastured fowl. The land has been in trees and grass for 20 years, the last 10 using permaculture principles. Lamb, turkey, chicken and guinea fowl are available in fall in limited quantities. Spring orders are best. Fall meat deliveries are combined with fresh frozen apple juice deliveries.

Lamb is sold whole (approximately 50 pounds of meat) half or quarter sampler packs. Turkey is available as whole (10-15 pounds) or half birds. The best time to visit the farm is during apple season or for spring and summer mechouis (lamb roasts.)

Moylinny Farm is a small family run farm which has the distinction of being the closest working farm to Parliament Hill. Our Hereford beef cattle are grass fed and naturally raised.

The cattle live as herbivores were meant to, outdoors, eating grass and hay that is grown without pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Our animals do not receive any animal by-products, growth hormones or antibiotics.

At Moylinny Farm we are committed to land stewardship and raise our animals with land sustainability in mind. We raise what our pastures and hay fields will support naturally, without the use of chemicals to force extra growth.

The farm is located directly adjacent to Gatineau Park, a 361 square kilometre refuge for hundreds of species of birds, mammals and plants. Moylinny Farm provides an important corridor for wildlife in an ever increasing sea of suburbia. The domestic and wild animals co-exist.

We sell our beef by the whole animal, side or quarter. We offer custom cutting on all orders.

Please see our website for ordering and custom cutting information. Orders are taken in the fall and on occasion at other times of year.

Bennett Beef markets pasture-finished beef.

The Bennetts, like most grassfarmers, practice "management intensive grazing." Their farm is divided into 50 separate fields called "paddocks," which allows the animals to be rotated every day or so to clean, fresh grass. This "pulsed" grazing helps create optimum growth of the grass.

The meat is harvested in October and is available in halves or in smaller quantities by arrangement. Orders are taken throughout the year. "We encourage you to place your order early to avoid disappointment."

Cool Springs Ranch - Pasture-to-plate Grass-Raised Foods

At Cool Springs we raise 100% Grass-fed Beef, Pastured Pork, Pastured Chicken,Turkey and Eggs, as well as a line of Grass-fed Raw Meat & Dairy Pet Food. In August 2010 we opened a small, on-farm Health Inspected Butchery where we can cut and process the meat into healthy cuts, burgers, sausages and other "real ingredient" products, as well as bulk packages.

Although we are not "certified," we welcome you to the farm to understand just how "beyond organic" functions. The animals naturally stay healthy by moving to fresh pasture daily and through the quality of their feed and supplements quality—there is no use for chemicals, antibiotics, hormones or vaccines on our farm! We are very conscious of using low-stress handling of the animals, including zero-stress pasture-harvesting.

There are presently two ways to purchase from us: visit our farm, or through our webstore where we will deliver to Drop-Points en-route and in Saskatoon and Regina. Please read up about how they work.

And FYI, one of the great inspirations for our farm has been through becoming a member of the Weston A Price Foundation. We encourage everyone to broaden their education on Good Food, Good Farming and the Healing Arts at www.westonaprice.org

Whole Beef Ranch. Our family is committed to using the Holistic Management decision process to restore the vitality of communities and the natural resources on which they depend. We have been using this process for more than ten years. Land and water resources have improved under our care, and the outcome is healthier and safer food.

In addition to improving our resources, we are concerned about your health. Recent studies show that diets with higher levels of omega-3 versus omega-6 fatty acids (FA) lower the risk of cancer, heart problems and obesity. Research shows that cattle, bison, sheep, and other ruminants fed grain--even organic grain—rather than grass will have two to six times more omega-6 than omega-3 FA.

Tenderness in beef comes from many factors. Many are surprised to learn that fat in the muscle from grain-fed animals only contributes 10–15% towards the tenderness of beef. Genetics contribute 30%. The remainder is a result of how the meat is processed.

Our beef are processed with care. For instance, the meat is aged three weeks or more before it is cut and wrapped. And tenderness—we guarantee it! We take care with our animals from birth to your table. They are raised as naturally as our environment will allow. They receive no artificial hormones, drugs or grain, and they are not "confined" at any time. Our animals are free to roam and have access to fresh forage nearly every day.

We offer any quantity of product you desire and guarantee it.

Whole Beef Ranch, Leonard Pigott, Box 222, Dysart SK S0G 1H0. (306) 432-4583.
