Local All Natural Meat
Premium dry-aged beef
Located in South Surrey, the feed lot is on 21 acres of land. There, you will find roomy barns, well-maintained pens, sunlight and cover. We raise Black Angus and Hereford cattle without the use of hormones, steroids and antibiotics to provide you with all natural beef. The cattle receive care and human interaction daily as two of the Baird families live on the family farm.
THE FEED AND FLAVOUR
Our cattle are fed silage (fermented grass) grown on local fields. We finish with grain (barley) to ensure superior marbling in the beef. All of our beef is dry aged for 21-30 days. During the dry-aging process about 40% of water weight is lost- meaning you get more bang for your buck, and less water ends up in the bottom of your pan. Using a quality dry aging process makes our beef not only more tender, but concentrates flavor and produces meat that is superb in taste and texture.
ETHICALLY AND HUMANELY RAISED
Throughout four generations of cattle farming we have always maintained a high standard of care for our cattle. The cattle receive care and human interaction daily as two of the Baird families live on the family farm.
