IS YOUR PRODUCE CERTIFIED ORGANIC?
We're not certified organic. In the future, we would consider becoming certified, but for now, the paperwork and costs don't make sense. We rigorously follow organic practices on the farm: we use no synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, we plant habitat for pollinators, and we use lots of compost to nourish the soil.
HOW CAN I GET SOME VEGGIES AND GRASS FED BEEF?
There's a few ways! We urge you to subscribe to our newsletter (you can do so at the bottom of this page)! Subscribing to our newsletter allows you to receive updates and reminders about the farm and when our online market opens for business! You can also purchase a CSA or buy from our online market weekly.
DO YOU HAVE A CSA?
We do! We offer a 12 week full and half share CSA; you can find out more information here!
CAN I FIND YOU AT LOCAL FARMER'S MARKETS?
No. We haven't signed up to participate in any farmer's markets this season. We work really hard on product photography every week so that you get the best idea of what you'll be receiving. We post a recent photo in our newsletter and our Instagram and Facebook page each week of what's available with as much detail about the produce as possible. We've found that the "click-and-collect" type of pickup is appreciated from those who are heading out to the lake for the weekend and those who don't like to fight the crowds at the farmer's market.
ARE YOUR CATTLE GRASS FED?
Yes they are. In the summer our cattle graze in our pastures rilled with many varieties of native grasses. In the winter, our cattle are fed baled hay from the summer.
IS YOUR BEEF ORGANIC?
No. We are not a certified organic farm, therefore, our beef is not organic. We do not spray the pasture land that the cattle graze on, and we make every effort to make sure that our cattle get healthy, quality feed that they deserve.
DO YOU BUTCHER YOUR OWN BEEF?
No. Once we have a cow that's ready to butcher, we bring her to a local, government inspected butchering facility where it's processed and packaged on site.
DO YOU RAISE YOUR OWN ANIMALS?
Yes we do! We are so proud that we can say that we've raised every cow that's a part of our herd from birth until the time they leave us.
WHAT METHODS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
We currently accept credit card, Visa-Debit, PayPal, and eTransfer.
WHERE DO I PICK UP MY ORDER?
I currently sell from my home located in Brandon, MB. My gardens are located on my parents farm located 30 minutes south of Brandon. I have pickup from my home in Brandon for easy access. My address is disclosed at checkout, and you'll receive a reminder email from me confirming that your order is ready along with the location on pickup day.
WHAT DAYS AND TIMES CAN I PICK UP MY ORDER?
Pickup days are Monday's from 5:00-6:30 pm.
WHAT IF I CAN'T PICK UP MY ORDER OR WILL BE AWAY ON PICKUP DAY?
Ask a friend or family member to pickup your order for you!
WHAT HAPPENS IF I FORGET TO PICK UP MY ORDER?
We generally do folks the courtesy of sending them a reminder email, but our policy states that order's that aren't pickup get donated a family in need. We encourage you to set a reminder for yourself!
DO YOU DELIVER ORDERS?
No. Folks must be able to pick up their orders in Brandon, MB on the pickup day and within the pickup time frame.
HOW WILL YOU PRACTICE SAFETY FOR YOUR CUSTOMERS DURING COVID-19?
Our current system actually prepared us for Covid-19 so we feel confident going into this season with only a few tweaks.
This season, each person's name will be clearly written o their bagged order and it will be waiting on a table for you to pickup.
We will respectfully limit the amount of people in our garage space pickup area if we have a large amount of people that show up at the same time.
We will practice physical distancing from our customers and will not exchange hugs or handshakes. If you are able to take your order to your vehicle that's great, if not, let us know and we will help you out by placing it in your trunk while you stay in your vehicle.
We will continue to wash and sanitize our hands before handling any part of your order.
We continue to encourage folks to wash their vegetables when they get them home and before consuming to make sure any germs, dirt, or bug friends have been removed.
All beef orders come to you frozen and will be kept bagged with your name in a cooler at pickup.
And of course, if myself or anyone in my family becomes ill, we will notify everyone and cancel orders immediately issuing full refunds.
