Black Angus Beef - the best!!

We have just picked up our latest Black Angus Beef. The freezers are full and there is a wide range of cuts available, both steaks and roasts.

For those who do not know us, we raise our Black Angus Cattle naturally. Our cattle do not receive any hormones or antibiotics in their lifespan. They graze on our pasture during the summer months and during those winter days are in the barn eating our own fresh-cut hay. We do introduce corn while finishing the cattle; we feed them corn along with our hay. This helps provide a deliciously sweet beef. Therefore, we cannot say we have an exclusively “grass fed” beef product, but they are not on a “corn fed” program either.
When butchering, we age our beef for approximately 21 days. If you have had a good, aged steak, you know it is more tender and flavourful than what you typically buy in the store. The reason for this is that aging allows natural enzymes to breakdown the hard connective tissue in meats and for water to evaporate away concentrating the flavour.
When you buy direct from the farm you know exactly where your food is coming from. Many consumers (eaters) are now concerned about the food they are eating and feeding their families. When you are able to see how your food was raised and grown it starts the relationship building with your local farmer. We’re always delighted to get to know our customers, and will be happy to show you around our farm.

A Farmers' Fields To Rooftop Gardens - How Canadians are Changing the Way We Eat

Sarah Elton will be speaking on Wednesday, June 9th at the Central Library here in London.
Her recent book is entitled, Locavore: From Farmers' Fields to Rooftop Gardens - How Canadians Are Changing the Way We Eat.

Sarah will be discussing how Canadians can bring about a more local and sustainable food system.

The book outlines how Canada lost self-sufficiency in food; and recounts with joy and enthusiasm the stories of individual farmers, co-ops, community projects and businesses which will bring us back to a more localized system that won't cost the Earth.
This is a free event and it gets underway at 7:00 pm.

See you there,

Karen & Peter
