Farm Fresh and grown in the Foothills
Local Ranch Raised Beef
Our ranch raised beef is raised by producers in the foothills and all truly local. All of our beef will be labeled with the ranches name as well as tag of animal to truly know where you food comes from and keep the best quality.
Local Heritage Pork
Our pork all comes from F4 ranches and hand raised by Cody. 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.
