Grass Fed Beef

From the time an animal is born to the time it reaches your dinner table we take great care to consider the wellbeing of that animal and the environment in which it’s raised. Calves are born on pasture in late spring/early summer and cows are grazed using planned grazing techniques whereby they have access to fresh pasture each day.

Pastured Pork

Our pigs are raised in a pasture environment. Just as we do with the other animals on the farm, we move the pigs, changing the location of their paddock every couple of weeks.

A little bit about Lydia
I am originally from Winnipeg. While I was a student at the University of Winnipeg I studied Environmental Science and Geography where I took an interest in systems ecology and soil sciences (nutrient cycling!) Later I earned my Master’s in Natural Resources Management with a research focus on rural livelihoods and gender. My studies have taken me to Mexico and Brazil where I gained an increased understanding and appreciation for agrarian livelihoods and small-scale agriculture. Through my learning and farming experience I have come to realize that pasture based farming and food production are viable livelihood activities for young people in Canada. Farming allows Wian and I to work together, problem solve, learn from others, learn from our environment, and provide our community with healthy food. I am challenged everyday to make decisions that impact how we care for land, animals,family and friends.
The story on Wian
As long as I can remember I have wanted to graze livestock. I began farming in 2005 after moving to Canada from Pretoria, South Africa. From the age of 18 I studied during the winter months and farmed on rented land during the summer. Initially I focused on pastured poultry but dreamed of one day raising sheep and cattle on a mixed-livestock farm. I wanted to raise good food for people in my community. Over the past decade I have had the opportunity to raise chickens, turkeys, ducks, pigs, sheep, goats and cattle. Since the spring of 2012 Lydia and I have been farming in Western Manitoba where we raise our chickens and pigs on pasture use planned grazing management for our grassfed beef and lamb. I have found self directed-study, trial and error, mentorship and the direct application of attained skills to be the most rewarding learning tools.

Hi all! We have some select cuts of beef back on the order form for December and January.

We have just about delivered all of our pre-ordered bulk beef for the season. Thank you all so much!

Including what we need for our fall/winter subscription program we do have some additional inventory remaining for December and January.

Just a reminder that our grass-fed beef is butchered seasonally off of the season's best grazing and so we are coming to the end of our big harvest/delivery season.

We will send out pre-order info for our Fall 2021 bulk beef order in the new year. We also anticipate having more 'beef by the cut' options available for next year for those of you with smaller households and freezers.

This is our seasonal calendar:

*Note that our winter feeding season is shorter and our grazing season longer [than average] as a result of planned grazing. Cattle are moved frequently and the pasture is given time to rest. Most of our pastures are grazed for only a few days at a time each year before the the cattle are moved. This rest period allows pasture to grow/regrow and we are able to stockpile forage for late fall and early spring.

* The butchering season and delivery season coincide with summer grazing with the last cattle going to the butcher in November. Fat cattle are taken to the butcher at 24-30 months of age.

* The calendar indicates we take bulk-beef pre orders into late summer. This year we sold out in June/July.

We mounted a scale onto our mixmill. This may seem like a small thing but in fact, it is big. We grind our feed on site for our pigs and chickens and we can now measure exactly how much grain is going into the mill and exactly how much is being fed out. We have balanced rations for chickens and pigs and Wian was measuring out tonnes of grain with a 5 gallon pail and a hanging scale for the chickens... or “eyeballing” it for the pig. This is much easier. In the video he is putting in the vitamins and minderals. I imagine it will be one of those things we wish we had done years ago but something that comes down to having the $ for the investment and the experience to know what a difference it makes. ...
