Our Products

Local

We've partnered with select local producers working on small family farms across the province to bring you traditionally raised products from right here in Ontario. Fed locally grown grass and grains and as much as possible the feed is grown on the farm that the animals are raised.

Take pride in contributing to the economic vitality, environmental health, and quality of life in the region. These farm-fresh products support the local economy and greatly reduce the environmental impact of transport.

Domestic

The Canadian Agriculture industry is ever changing but one aspect has always remained strong – beef. While a large amount of our Canadian beef comes from Ontario, reaching out to other Provinces is required to take advantage of feed qualities specific to each particular region.

Additional domestic products sourced from Ontario and from other Provinces include Pork from Quebec and Lamb from Alberta.
