Forage Acres Beef strives to produce Certified Organic grass-fed beef in the most natural sustainable method possible. (www.pacscertifiedorganic.ca/) Our cattle are predominantly Galloway, which are well known for their quality meat.
Producing beef from forage only is known to increase natural CLA fats which are beneficial to human health. It is truly a joy to move our cattle herd around the farm, moving them every few days to new pasture and water. Cattle are provided organically approved minerals at all times and use nose pumps from fenced dugouts to pump their own water. During the winter they bale graze and use snow as their source of water (see pictures on our website). Calving starts in late spring with calves staying with their mum`s through their first winter and weaning onto green pasture in early spring. Finishing is between 18–28 months of age.
Our beef are processed in a local Certified Organic processing plant and dry aged for nutrient-dense meat. Healthy Land = Healthy Plants and Animals = Healthy People.

Grazed Right focuses on protecting and regenerating habitat in one of the most diverse and unique areas of Alberta. We protect and enhance this wildlife habitat and soil microbiome health through the planned grazing of cattle, pigs and laying hens. The byproducts of this method are Grass Fed Beef, Pastured Pork and Pastured Eggs that are nutrient-dense and delicious! We are the most local Grass Fed Beef for Calgary. Look us up on Google Maps under “Grazed Right.”
The core of what we do is ecosystem management. I am not a farmer, I am a steward of the land. I protect mice, gophers and their predators (coyotes, badgers, hawks, etc.). Rather than shoot coyotes and then poison an out of control gopher population, I let nature balance itself. Our cattle play a role in the ranch ecosystem, mimicking their bison cousins, and cycle nutrients on a large scale. The pigs and chickens fertilize the pastures and increase biodiversity wherever they go. It is an intact ecosystem, with respect and space for all wildlife.
We go to great effort to use low-stress animal handling techniques and are very proud of the “happy cows” we produce. We greatly value our partners (customers) and strive to build a long-term relationship with the goals of superior nutrition, environmental protection and animal welfare. We are not looking to be grocers selling two or three pounds of beef to thousands of strangers. We are developing a core group of people who are interested in small-scale (we have no employees), sustainable and affordable agriculture. All our partners are always welcome out at the ranch so you can take part in and enjoy the land and environment you are protecting.
If you want to buy beef straight from the farmer, this is the real deal. When you call, the rancher answers and there's good chance he'll be riding on horseback in the hills when he does.

At Keystone Ranch we’re going back to what worked so well for our grandparents—re-establishing a connection with the food we produce and consume. This inherently requires more of us—a good ‘ole day’s work—but what you put in is what you get out.
It starts with the land, working with it so it will thrive for future generations. We don’t use any fertilizers, herbi, insecti-, fungi- or whatever-icides for our animals to ingest or contaminate the soil. All our animals are raised without soy, corn, or hormones.
Our bison are grass-fed and grass-finished, meaning they eat grass for the entirety of their lives, resulting in meat filled with essential vitamins and nutrients and a taste that can’t be beat. Our chickens receive the same level of care, ranging free outside the coop in warmer months and roaming around the coop in winter.
Keystone Ranch also offers natural skincare products for any skin type. Made with 100% pure bison tallow, our creams and lip balm will bring your skin back to life, ensuring natural hydration without any form of chemicals.
Keystone Ranch attends two public markets weekly, the Manchester Market and the Grand Market, providing you with the perfect pickup location in the city of Edmonton, AB. We also deliver to Calgary every 3 months.

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

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

for 401 acres of crop production (pasture) and 260 head

the very highest standards of land and animal stewardship,
a philosophy and way of life that our family has endorsed
for many years. We harvest non-grazed pastures and vacuum
pack the silage so even in winter, the cows eat pristine
grasses, wildflowers and herbs. Enjoy

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.

Cedar Beef comes from our small family farm located in the traditional territories of the Snuneymuxw First Nation, at the edge of the Nanaimo River Estuary in beautiful Cedar, BC, on Vancouver Island. All three generations of our family help to run the farm, which provides us the opportunity to live close, and stay connected, to the land and the people we love.
Having farmed here for 30 years, we are determined to steward a fertile, healthy land base to sustain our beef cattle and the abundance of wildlife that depend on the farm’s rich grasslands.
Our Simmental-Red Angus cattle are born on the farm and live in a low stress, natural environment. They are free to roam lush, fertile, highly nutritious forage pastures throughout the grazing season and in winter are supplemented with homegrown grass silage.
Once slaughtered, the beef is dry-aged for 21 days to relax the meat and intensify the flavor. The beef is then cut, wrapped and frozen at a provincially licensed Class ‘A’ slaughter facility nearby.
This combination of genetics, grass-finishing, and dry-aging allows us to offer highly nutritious beef, free of hormones and antibiotics, and full of flavor.
Our pre-packaged mixed freezer boxes offer a convenient way to try a selection of cuts. We also sell beef by the side or split side (quarter).
You can order online at www.cedarbeef.ca/shop for delivery anywhere in British Columbia.

Grass Root Dairies, formerly known as Gort’s Gouda Cheese Farm, opened its doors in 1983. We opened our doors making Gouda Cheese and Quark (a soft German-style cream cheese). As the years passed, we expanded into making Spiced Gouda, Maasdammer, and yogurt. Since 2009 we have been processing non-homogenized Grass-fed milk sold in 2-liter reusable glass bottles and 1-liter plastic bottles. We also sell chocolate milk with only 3 ingredients: milk, sugar and cocoa.
Our products are 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 100% Grass Fed all year long and we use organic practices, 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 cow’s 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 fed with Organic Hay raised on our own fields 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 cheese snack and a piece of cheesecake or yogurt smoothie made with our own products in our kitchen.

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.

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
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 pounds.
The animals are available in the fall after
the pasture season. We do take orders all year long due to a limited
supply. We sometimes 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.

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.

Bennett Beef markets
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."

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.
