100% Grass-Fed Beef & Lamb
We are known as the home of 100% grass-fed beef from start to finish. No grain, no exceptions - their natural diet.
Our beef comes from conscientious Mennonite farmers located within 100 miles from our shop (Gorrie/Waterloo/Kitchener). They are raised on pasture and free-range in the winter. They have never been given hormones or antibiotics, nor have they had animal by-products or GMOs in their feed. They graze on grass that has NO chemical fertilizers or pesticides during spring/summer/fall, and are fed hayledge (dried grass) in the winter. We are working closely with our farmers to naturally enhance the animal breed and increase healthy fats in the meat.
We have sourced our lamb from the same local (Kitchener), grass-fed and certified organic and biodynamic farmer since 2003. As with the natural cycle, the lambs are born in the spring, graze outdoors on organic green pastures. They are harvested from September until March.

We only carry wild-caught fish, certified sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council and Oceanwise approved. Caught in season, delivered fresh, flash-frozen for crisp taste, and vacuum-sealed for long-lasting high quality.
We carry sockeye salmon, halibut, haddock, cod, tuna, lobster, snapper, perch, pickerel, haddock, sole, and shrimp.
We only sell pasture-fed free-range eggs. They are healthier and they taste much better.
The hens’ coop is placed in the middle of the pasture and is moved around every few days. The hens have free access to fresh air, sunshine, and fresh grass during the day. The grass they access has never been sprayed with pesticides or chemical fertilizers. They have also never been given hormones or antibiotics.
Most farmers feed the chicken’s certified organic grain, and so the eggs are therefore sold as Organic. Some farmers feed the chickens GMO-free grain and these eggs are therefore sold as GMO-free eggs.
We carry a wide range of products from local Mennonite and Amish family farmers including:
Homemade Pickles, Jams, and Preserves
Our pickles and jams are made from local certified organic or organically grown fruits and vegetables. Local Mennonite farmers process and can them for us. We provide them with the necessary organic ingredients - such as organic oranges for marmalade. The jams and spreads are made with organic cane sugar, and the pickles are made with sea salt.
