PASTURE RAISED BEEF
Our cattle are raised on pasture their entire lives which means they are grass fed. We currently supplement necessary nutrients such as selenium and vitamin A to ensure our herd gets the required nutrition needed. We feed test our hay, which we harvest ourselves to feed our cattle during the winter months, to identify what is needed to supplement their diets for maintaining optimal herd health. Beef being raised for processing are also supplemented with some grain sourced from local farms in the area to help finish them off. We are in the process of increasing the heath of our pastures which would enable us to fully finish our beef on grass.
We do not inject our animals with steroids or hormones. Antibiotics are only used when necessary to treat illness and prevent disease outbreaks. This ensures the optimal health and well-being of the herd. Our cattle are handled using low stress and humane methods. We process our beef in a provincially inspected facility as stated by the Government of Alberta.

Our beef boxes are a smaller alternative to ordering bulk while still getting a better value and a variety of meats. Our boxes come in two different sizes and contain a variety of cuts including: ground beef and stew meat (approx. 1/3 of the box), variety of steaks (approx. 1/3 of the box), and variety of roasts (approx. 1/3 of the box), Click here to order.
