We have closed the order form for this pick up date. Stay tuned… we will repeat something like this in August.

We have heard from you that you enjoy receiving your beef deliveries in the winter, but in the summer, during BBQ season, it is difficult to come by our delicious meats. As such we have scheduled a second summer beef for the BBQ pop-up. (The first one on June 17th knocked our socks off).

Grazing Days Grass-Fed Beef Available Now

Grazing Days is a family farm that delivers high quality grass-fed beef and pastured pork to local households in Ottawa and Gatineau. It’s like a magazine subscription, but for grass-fed beef. We aim to make local grass-fed beef available to households who don’t have a lot of storage space to store frozen meat, or households who don’t consume large quantities of meat, by delivering shoe-box sized boxes of beef or pork on a regular basis, be it once a month, once every other month or once a year. For those looking to order larger quantities of meat in a single delivery, we do that too.

 

We are now accepting orders for our grass-fed beef

Grazing Days is committed to raising high quality grass-fed beef. Our cattle eat nothing but grass during the spring, summer, and fall months and in the winter we feed dried grass (hay) or fermented grass (haylage). We do not feed any grain at any point in time. We are also committed to not using artificial growth hormones or antibiotics.

 

We are now accepting orders for our grass-fed beef. The beef we are accepting orders for now (the Spring/Summer of 2016) will be delivered between October 2016 and June 2017. Here is an overview of our grass-fed beef order options, the pricing, and the breakdown of the beef for each 10 lb package:

the whey they like it.

The season is well under way here on the farm. The cows are happily on pasture, moving every day to fresh grass, and the pigs are helping us get parcels of land ready for fresh seed.

During the winter months, we looked for ways to make our pork enterprise more profitable. Given the high cost of organic pig feed, and the belief that pigs can and should play a food waste recycling role, we have paired up with a local cheese maker, la Fromagerie Montebello. We’ve been feeding the pigs whey, a waste product of cheese making, for a week now and they’ve adjusted well.

Twice a week, two to four of these totes are filled at the Fromagerie.

We feel a lot better feeding the pigs this way, saving the food grade organic grain for human consumption.  And this added sustainability might well be the ticket to a profitable farm enterprise.
