We are proud to offer locally sourced, pasture raised beef and pork from small farms in the Kawarthas, processed at our local abattoir Otonabee Meat Packers. Sides of pork from heritage breeds and naturally raised beef are butchered nose-to-tail in our shop every week and we prepare our gluten-free sausages in house. All of our beef, pork, chicken and lamb is raised without the use of additional antibiotics or hormones. 

RWA Red & Black Angus

Artisan Farms, a collection of small farms in Westbury County and Southern Ontario, has a family history of breeding Aberdeen Angus. This particular breed of cattle (which can be red or black) is known for its superior marbling and for pasturing well over the winter. Together with other Ontario farmers producing certified RWA (raised without antibiotics) purebred Aberdeen Angus, Artisan Farms supplies a variety of particular cuts of steak of exceptional quality and flavor. We are happy to offer custom cut to order steaks for every occasion. 

Heritage Bred Pork

Tamworth and Berkshire breeds of pork are ideally suited for outdoor production and especially for forage-based farming systems, as they fair very well throughout the winter months and are especially efficient at rooting for food in the forest or pasture. Being exposed to a variety of foodstuffs, these heritage breeds of pigs develop a depth of flavor that is not found in commercial, industrially raised pork.

Cage-Free Chicken

King Capon is a family owned and operated farm located in the heart of the Greenbelt in Sharon, Ontario. They raise their chickens in a cage-free environment with a natural nutrient density feed consisting of wheat shorts, corn, distiller's grain and soy. They work closely with local Mennonite growers and process their chicken by hand on site. It is then air-chilled to ensure the best quality flavor and tenderness.
