Producer - Beef
Kenny is a neighbor and amazing cowboy and rancher, I am ecstatic to be able to bring his beef to the Hartell homestead and share with all of you. He raises grass fed all natural beef with his family here in the foothills.
Producer - Pork
F4 Ranches is the result of four generations of Bews' farming and ranching west of High River. With each generation feeding and raising pork it is in the heart of the operation to continue to do so. With the goal to raise well marbled and dark red pork F4 Ranches as established a breeding program that compliments these traits, the sows are a Berkshire/Wild boar cross for outdoor hardiness and quality meat production and a mangoliza boar to add more marbling and dark meat to the pork giving it that excellent home grown quality you can not buy in any regular grocery store.
