Here are some of the things that my customers are saying...

  • Hi Jim
    Thanks so much for that amazing tour of your farms yesterday. It really affected me. Knowing there are people like you out there doing the right thing by animals is really heartening. Don't fluff it off either - I can tell you care! 
    I was so impressed how much you cared about the farm, the animals, the property, 'doing the right thing' etc. Truly. I just posted a long blurb on my Facebook page about my trip yesterday. I know there are probably others doing what you do, but I was also pleased you welcomed me to come up and have a look. 
    I will definitely be ordering some food from you soon. I'm away for the next week or so, so it will be in a few weeks. 
    Take care and thanks again!

  • Hi farmer Jim! I'm about to order for the second time because we were so happy with our first experience. This time my parents will order with us and we were wondering if we could request some specific items in our order? (Broth bones, more burger patties for example)?

  • This is the second time we are ordering from you. Meat was amazing. We are telling everyone we talk to about you guys and what a difference grass fed, free range is. thank you.

  • HI Jim,
    I'm so happy with the meat I've purchased from you last month ( haven't finished it yet).
    The boyfriend and I are headed camping this weekend and I was wondering if you would be able to put a box together for me-- I can pick up as I cannot wait for the next delivery.
    Sabrina-Nicole - July 5 2017
  • Just received my first shipment! Delivery was a breeze and everything was packaged nicely, cannot wait to find out how great it tastes. You may have another customer for life.
    Andrew Bootsma - June 28 2017
  • Can I send an internet transfer instead of credit for my next order? 
    Also I have recommended and shared your website with friends and my Naturopathic doctor. Hopefully this will result in them becoming new clients. We love your service and food quality.

    Just wanted to let you know our order was delivered perfectly and were incredibly excited for our second order. People that come over can't believe how good and different everything tastes.
    Brent Barron - June 22 2017
  • HI Jim,
     
    Sorry it’s been a while.  We moved from Belleville to London Ontario in November. Our jobs have kept us very busy with commuting daily to Toronto.  However, we were missing your wonderful grass-fed meat products so I finally got this order done.  Can you please rush any item possible?  Secondly can you please double check your delivery system to ensure our new address is right. I would be very upset if this amount of food went to Belleville and of course very disappointed as we are anxious to have our wonderful quality meat from your farm again.
     
    Thanks so much and Happy Sunny days (finally),
    Marie Mitchell

  • We really enjoyed meeting Jim and getting a tour of the farm. We both agreed that the chicken, bacon, eggs, and beef were the best we have ever tasted in our lives. We plan on buying all of our meat at Jim's farm from now on.

  • Thanks Jim

    Had our first roast and it was delicious. My wife Meira even posted on your FB page and a friend said she would be ordering. 

    Word of mouth is great!

    Thanks for taking such good care of us on that first order. I think we are converted. 

    Cheers

  • Hello Jim, James Patsakos here.  I'm the hunter that purchased your grass fed beef and you asked that I give you some feedback.  During our conversation, I neglected to mention that I spent years in the restaurant business and am very capable in the kitchen.
    So here goes...I loved it.
    I cooked the large steak after letting defrost in the fridge and come close to room temp.  I cooked it in a very neutral manner so as not to influence the taste of the meat with added flavors.  I salted the steak while it sat at room temp.  I did not tenderize the meat in any way.
    I cooked it to medium/rare in a stainless steel frying pan on the stove top at a medium/high hear using a little grapeseed oil (I can see you cringing right now).  Probably had 2 minutes on each side.
    Once it got a bit of color on each side, I put the pan in the oven on convection roast at 350 for about 6 or 7 minutes.
    The steak finished at medium rare and i let it see for a min or two prior to cutting into it.
    The final product was very good.  I liked it very much as did my son. 
    I noticed the difference between your product and store bought immediately out of the the wrapping.  It was lean and was a cross between grain fed beef and wild deer.  It was lean and the grass flavour was forward on the first bite, and then settled into a delicious meal.
    I look forward to my next serving.





    James Patsakos - February 12 2017
  • We have made 2 large orders in the past and just love the beef, pork, and chicken. There's only two of us so an order does last us quite awhile. We can no longer go back to supermarket meat because we find the product from Farmer Jim is SO much better. The meat cooks nicely with little shrinkage. Also, the meat itself has flavour - I get many compliments and I know I haven't had to hide the meat by over seasoning it. We just recently ran out and for convenience, I purchased 2 grocery store pork chops. The meat was tasteless, cooked up tough (even though I slightly undercooked it before resting) and the texture was rough. Time for a new order!
    Jennifer Ko - January 29 2017
  • Hi Farmer Jim,
    we purchased beef from Jim in June for our anniversary we bought i believe was 100lbs of beef to feed at least 100 people lets just say it was so good i had to ask the cook to save me 2lb before it was all eatened up it was the best beef we have ever had and all our guest was so satisifed not 1 soul went home hungry that night . thanks Jim we will purchase more from you .
    P.s. I am sorry it took so long to post this. but your beef is to die for..

  • Dear James,
    You've really contributed to our holidays!
    The pork roast was sensational. While looking for recipes, I found one from a farmer like you in Texas. He shared his family recipe, and i followed it,first brining the roast with spices and orange zest and honey, and then cooking at very low temp (after the first half hour). The family is still talking about it!
    I shared one package of bacon, giving it to my daughter and her family for Xmas morning.
    I made a great beef bone broth and then use that to make super healthy soup and had plenty on hand for drop in visits from the older grand kids.
    I've been cooking a long time, and I can taste the difference. The family is raving about me, but i know how much is dependent on the ingredients!
    So thank you for making our holidays filled with the comfort of good food.

    On another subject:
    My son-in-law would like make pork schnitzel for my husbands 78th birthday in mid January, and i wanted to ask if it is possible to get thinner cut, boneless pork loin chops.
    Please do let me know! We can add to that order since I have family and friends who would help make an order. And I'd be happy to buy the bones you remove for bone broth...
    Happy New Year!

  • Hello Jim,
    Just to let you know that my order # 2 arrived around 3 pm and in excellent condition. Thank you for the extra 4 farm fresh eggs. I truly appreciate it and will be having some for my breakfast tomorrow.
    I will also be sending you another order (probably on Friday). I want to be sure to fill up my freezer before Christmas and also have some extra to give as a gift to my children and grandchildren.
    Thank you again for the work you do to raise healthy animals so that we will also be healthy.

    I would like my order # 2 to be left on the bench next to the back door. I'm looking forward to making my lasagne with the ground lamb. I know it will be delicious just like the meat I cooked from my order # 1. Thank you for providing us with healthy food.

    This is my first order and as promised it was delivered on Wednesday , and I want to thank you for sharing such amazing food. I love the fact that I know where the meat comes from and how it is raised. I can say that everything tasted amazingly delicious.

  • My family and I enjoyed a wonderful supper tonight. I made a delicious tomato sauce using the stewing beef from my first order that I received in great condition on Wed. of this past week . The meat was the most tender stewing beef I have ever cooked. My husband barbequed 2 packages of the sausages and they were fantastic. He said they tasted like homemade and didn't upset his stomach like store bought usually do. My family definitely want me to order more meat from you. I am planning to order chicken and lamb meat next, in time to make a lovely lamb sauce for my lasagne dish for Christmas. By the way, I couldn't wait to try the steak and ground beef you sent me so I had the steak on Thursday and made 5 big hamburgers on Friday. I did share with my husband and we both enjoyed our meals very much. My 2 year old granddaughter had one of the hamburgers and loved it too. Thank you again for your hard work and quick service in delivering healthy food for all of us to enjoy.

  • Hi Jim,

    It was great to meet you and your wife and all your animals today. I defrosted one of the ground beef packages and making pasta sauce with it. It smells like your farm! So fragrant and delicious. 

    Can't wait to dig into the rest of our treasures from today. 

    Have a great evening,

  • Hi Jim - to be honest with you I didn't even open the boxes but there were no leaks or anything so I assume they were fine.  The box was in perfect shape upon delivery.  I will check for you tonight when I get home and let you know for sure tomorrow.
    So far everything that we have ordered has come beautifully packaged and everything is delicious.

    Thanks, Jane

  • Good morning!

    I'm always on the hunt looking for healthy meat to serve to my family. I'm hoping this will be the magic bullet I've been searching for. I love the convenience of the ordering process and the flexibility of having a freezer full of healthy choices to make for dinner.
    Mike Stoney Creek - August 6 2016
  • It's so sad that North America has such a flawed system in grading today's steroid injected meat that is sprayed with chemicals to make the shelf life of the meat look new. When I became enlighted to these facts I had to make a change right away. And than I found your site that delivers.

    Keep up your hard work in raising healthy meat so Canadians can stay healthy.

    And I still give your meat an A++++++++++

  • Just wanted to say thank you Jim for high quality meat!
    We absolutely loved our first order of grass fed sampler and now we are enjoying Grilling Special 2016. Steaks look and taste great while burger patties are well sized and nicely seasoned!
    It is great that now we can also order eggs, that by the way are delicious!
    Looking forward to Visit your farm in person!

    Thank you,

  • Hi Jim,
    Well another really great meat order has been delivered all frosty and frozen, as usual. All those wonderful steaks and hamburger patties have topped my freezer up nicely. I love, love, love the Grilling Combo! I had one of the hamburgers last night and it was really delicious! Just enough seasoning in them. Will have another tonight and I can honestly say, I'm looking forward to it! I know I am really going to enjoy this last order Jim. Well my hubby finally got to eat his Whitefish that came in my order last month. He really loved it and the freshness of it. I had a small taste of it and even I, who's not a lover of fish, thought it tasted pretty good! I've had a couple of meals with the pork chops that I got in my order last month and boy, they were delicious! They are so juicy and tender and big! Each chop makes for one very filling meal! I did the rump roast in my slow cooker this time and lordy, lordy, lordy...it was absolutely the best! Now, back to the Grilling Combo Package. I don't know how long you will have this particular combo for sale Jim, but I'm hoping you'll be selling it well into August or September. At that time I should have enough room in my freezer for another order. Thanks for all the great meat you so carefully ship out to all your many customers Jim. It is the best beef, chicken and pork that I have ever eaten. (Ok...and fish) Many, many thanks for my wonderful Grilling Combo. I just know I'm going to have a very tasty, finger licking good, and filling summer! :)
    Have a great day on the farm,

  • Hi Jim,

    I received the package as expected. Many thanks for the eggs, only 5 were broken, but the other 19 were intact. We already tasted them, and they are delicious.
    I also wanted to say that after trying 2 other Ontario farmers, your beef and pork are superior in taste and quality overall.
    Can't wait to try your fish next...once our freezer will have enough room for a new order.

    Cheers,

  • Hi Jim,
    Just letting you know I got my order of beef and it was all frosty frozen solid, as usual. I had one of the Tenderloin steaks the following day and boy was it wonderful! So tasty and melt in your mouth tender. Thanks for the great selection of meat you sent. It's always like Christmas whenever I get a package from you. It's always a surprise inside that wonderful shipping box! :)
    I just put in my order for the 10 lbs. of Pork Chops and the 10 lbs. of Parted Out Chicken. I tried to order the White Fish but for some reason it wouldn't go through. I did order it after I had ordered the chops and the chicken. Of course, I am no whiz on this machine so that could very well have something to do about the order not getting processed. In the meantime, I will gladly enjoy all my wonderful beef and soon to arrive chops and chickens parts!
    Many thanks for taking such good care of all your customers Jim. It's much appreciated.
    Have a great day on the farm!

  • Hi Farmer Jim
    We really enjoyed eating your Georgian Bay lake trout (and I am picky about my fish). It tasted like it was just caught that day.
    I guess the fact that it is only frozen once as opposed to the usual twice makes all the difference! I will make sure I add more to my next order.

  • Got my first order a couple of weeks ago, ordering and payment was easy, no issues. I got a Pork & Beef combo and I received on the expected date as promised, in perfect condition.
    So far I have tried some beef and Pork cuts; Pork is my favorite, it has an amazing taste, the sausages are a hit with my kids.
    It's first time I try grass fed beef, it certainly has a different flavor and way less fat that other cuts, haven't tried the steaks yet.
    Thanks Jim!

    Christopher Fry - October 29 2015
  • Hi JIm,

    You were right about your pork sausages. They are delicious. The fat is like a sweet butter. I could drink a glass of the juices expelled - they’re that good. This is better than I remember pork tasting from my childhood. It’s also so oddly filling - I could barely finish two sausages.

    So, you got me convinced about the pork. I’ll definitely order more pig from you. And I’ll try the chicken and lamb too.

    Trying the ground beef this weekend too. Just simple burgers. Looking forward to it.

    Cheers,

  • Hi Jim,

    My order arrived safely, all frosty and frozen solid and looking like it had just been packaged. You are one great meat packer! :) The chicken pieces look fabulous, so much so, I left one of the breasts out for supper tomorrow might. I had a wonderful surprise two days ago when I was cleaning out the freezer getting it ready for the 30 lbs of meat that was soon to be delivered. Tucked away behind a roast was this beautiful, huge and I do mean HUGE, T-Bone steak. I don't know how I overlooked it when my company was here but I am so happy I did! I cooked the steak up for my lunch today and Holy Hannah it was so tender and juicy and full of flavor I said a silent prayer of thanks to the Almighty for hiding it on me. I could only eat half of it so for supper tonight I will have the other half sliced up in a big organic salad with fixings from my hubby's garden. I'm kind of sorry that my company didn't get to have a taste of this premium cut of meat but then again...I would have missed out! Jim, I have tasted many quality steaks in my lifetime but none could compare with this T-Bone steak. I believe it all stems from the care that you give your animals that we, your customers, get the chance to experience the true taste of quality and goodness. Once again, many thanks Jim. Till the next time...

  • Thanks for everything Jim,
    My company had never tasted meals like they had here. What's to complain about! They got to eat all the steaks and the majority of the pork chops! They also were really taken with the ground pork sausage bangers I made for their breakfasts every morning. I loved having them but it was sure nice to put my feet up once again after they left! :)

    Keep well

  • Hi Jim,
    Sorry for not letting you know I got my order but my hubby has been updating my computer and I'm just now getting to have some time on it. The meat was delivered as usual, all frosty and frozen solid. I made a pot of beef stew the other day and the stew meat just melted in my mouth! I had to force myself away from the table. Of course I must not forget to mention your delicious pork chops which also melt in my mouth. They are so tender and so, so tasty! My first taste of your farm fresh sausage really hit a home run here. I thought they might be all greasy and running with fat but uh-uh. So I have decided next to the pork chops, they are now my next best meat product from the farm! They were so good! Moist and tender and very flavourful. And huge! Did I mention they were huge? I'm thinking I'm going to need some more of those sausages in my next order! Tonight we are having some of your free range chicken parts. Can't wait! So thank you Jim for keeping me so well fed! I thank you and my almost pain free body thanks you for providing us with all the wonderful choices of healthy meats. Till next time...
    Have a great day on the farm.

  • Hi

    I have been enjoying your products immensely. The pork chops and steaks are mouth watering, and the liver mixed in with stewing beef is delicious.

    I don't have time at the moment to come to Durham so I am going to take advantage of your delivery service. The delivery will be fine on the porch. If the box(es) could be left close to the door on the west wall of the little alcove it will be cooler as the sun doesn't shine in there.

    Looking forward to the delivery. From the testimonials it looks like you are doing a fantastic business. Good for you. You put a lot of work into and take a lot of pride in your new venture. Much appreciated at this end.

    Regards

  • I receive my order just over a week ago. The garlic sausages are a hit with my family and the beef and lamb are also quite tasty. Your grass fed beef, lamb and pastured pork are a great addition to the mostly local organic fruits and vegetables I buy.
    Thank you!

  • So I received you beef, and so far, I am very impressed! I've made a pasta sauce with the ground beef (that my husband said was the best sauce he's ever tasted), stock with the bones that was delicious, and tonight, we tried the rib-eye steaks. I marinated them in olive oil, crushed garlic, celtic salt and fresh rosemary, then seared them 2 minutes each side, and let them cook low for a few more minutes. I let them sit for about 10 minutes afterwards. They were better than the Keg! My kids gobbled them up (and I mean GOBBLED- my 15 month old only wanted the meat, nothing else!). I Can't wait to try the roast :)



    Thanks again for the great beef!



    Talk to you soon,

  • You're the best, thank you so much!

    By the way, this is an awesome service for us... It makes no sense for us to have a car, living in downtown Toronto, it would cost so much to park and manage, but that ends up creating a bit of difficulty around groceries, especially if I want healthy food, so now I'm getting my meat and produce delivered and its all super healthy! It's really working out perfectly. :)

    Anyway... Thanks so much!!

  • Hi Jim
    Got my meat order this afternoon. Very impressive how you ship it! Good for you for coming up with the idea.
    I cooked up a few of the steaks and all I can say is HEAVEN! This is how I remember meat used to taste as a kid.
    My husband loves it as well and my 18 year old daughter who had pretty much given up on meat as it bothered
    her stomach ate a big piece, loved it and feels great!
    I am so glad I found you!
    I thought I saw a BBQ special on your old site (new one looks great by the way!). Are you going to offer this for the summer?
    Your loyal customer

  • Once I got the hang of cooking grass fed and pasture raised meat with the help of you, the grass fed book, and your customers, I started to fall in love with your meat. Your grass fed beef cuts are truly amazing! The taste is so clean, lean, and grassy! I have also tried your roasts, chickens, and turkeys, and every time they turn out very tender and not dry tasting. The fat from the pork chops, bacon, and sausage also taste very different compared to conventional-raised meat as they seem much smoother silky tasting, and melts in your mouth.

    By the way, your new re-designed website looks more intuitive and clean than ever!

    Thanks a lot Jim

  • Hi Jim,

    I just wanted to let you know my order has arrived. Everything looks great. With everything that I've had from you, I am now really looking forward to my first meal of pork chops. I'm sure they will be as tender and tasty as all the beef, pork and chicken that we've had in the past. It's hard to believe that many people are going through life not really knowing what healthy meat is supposed to taste like. I'm grateful I found out. Many thanks for the great meat and the great service.
    Much happiness,

  • Ok. I guess I was also a bit worried about the neighbours dog.

    But it is very quiet here and I am sure it would be fine in the porch for a few hours.

    We love your products. This is my fourth order.

  • Hi Jim,

    I just wanted to let you know I just ordered the 10 lb package of pork chops and the 10 lb package of Free Range Chicken parts. I wanted to also let you know just how well I have been feeling eating your very fine Grass Fed products. I have been a long time sufferer of Osteoarthritis and also Fibromyalgia. Everyday was a struggle to complete the smallest chore and each passing year these struggles just kept getting worse. A friend told me of a new diet that was helping her control her pain called the Whole30 Diet so I got the book and read it through twice before I made the decision to try the diet. One of the things suggested in the diet is eating only grass-fed meats. Well, it took a lot of soul searching to make that decision because I had been a vegan for the past two years. Unfortunately I was not getting much pain relief with that way of eating. I placed my first order with you in late November or early December with the idea of starting the new diet on January 1st. I have to be very honest and tell you that I had to struggle to cook my first meat meal in over two years but when I tasted the meat I just knew something was very, very special about it. It had a very clean. fresh, light taste to it. Within ten days of starting the diet, I had no stiffness in my knees and my shoulders and neck had no pain! Eating meat-meals three times a day was very hard for me at first but my body was quickly adjusting to it. I completed my first thirty-day diet on January 30th and at that point I was totally pain free. I have just started another thirty days. There have been a few things that I have noticed in eating your wonderful grass-fed meat and one of the most pleasant things was the effect it was having on my emotions. I find I am in a constant state of feeling happy! Also, after I've had one of my very satisfying meals, my body just felt 'pumped up'! I know this all sounds silly, but it really is the truth. I had two weeks were I broke the diet and it didn't take long for the aches and pains to return and my mood once again reflected the pain I was in. I was once again short tempered and down right unpleasant at times. I am slowly coming to the realization that the way the animals are treated in their lifetime plays a big roll in how their meat effects our bodies when we ingest it. Jim, I have to say that I have enjoyed everything I have ordered from you. Your beef is truly wonderful and so clean tasting. The chicken is like none I have ever tasted. Meaty and moist. The liver I got from you in my last order was absolutely wonderful! Never have I tasted liver like that. It really was melt in your mouth tender. I'm anxious to get the pork chops now, so I can try them also. I am so truly grateful that I was able to find you on the internet. You have not only provided me with clean tasting meats, you are also providing me chronic pain relief from illnesses that I would be taking medications for. Thank you for everything. Keep well.

  • Hello Jim,
    Wanted to let you know how impressed I was with the safe arrival and packaging of the meat. Today we tried your bacon and sausage and I had to write and say thank you for what you do! It's so yummy. The bacon is incredible, meaty and delicious flavour. Love the garlic flavour in the sausage and how it melts in the mouth.
    Thanks again, you Rock Farmer Jim!!

    We are enjoying your beef, pork and chicken. Thank you.
    We are a family of 4 just so you know for the packaging of our meat ( love the bacon, we would love more of it)

  • Hi Jim,

    It was great talking with you yesterday:). I just wanted to let you know that I mailed a check off to you this morning for the beef package so you should be receiving it soon. My husband and I plan on taking a trip to your farm as soon as the weather warms up a bit:). We are very grateful to find grass fed beef so close to our home, and we are really looking forward to trying it:)! I have a feeling that the "grass fed beef" we have been buying at our local butcher is not totally grass fed all its life. I think it's finished with corn for the last 3 months of its life as the meat is not a dark purply red as you were saying and is very marbled with fat.

    In Appreciation,

    Nicole Fraser

  • Good morning Jim,

    Just a quick note to let you know my order arrived safely yesterday. Everything was just as ordered. We're looking forward to trying the beef liver. If the liver is only half as good as all the other meats we've got from you, I know it will probably just melt in our mouths. Many thanks for all the truly tender and tasty meats you are providing for your clients. I can honestly say my taste buds are rejuvenated and doing their own 'happy dance'. :)

    Have a wonderful day on the farm.

  • Good morning Jim,

    This is Nick Richardson and as promised I am emailing my feedback on my recent meat order.

    To start, the order arrived when expected with no issues. No package damage or delays. We ordered the 30 lbs beef and pork. We found the selection of meat to be good for both the pork and the beef. We have had the opportunity to eat; bacon, sausages, pork butt chops, ground beef, and rib steaks. The pork was delicious and cooks pretty close to store bought. The butt chops were cooked on my charcoal bar-be-que, and I honestly cannot remember the last time I had a chop that good. The beef is delicious as well. It taste like grass feed beef, I personally like the taste better. It is not “gamy” or overpowering, a nice mild flavour.

    When cooking, the pork can be cooked a little closer to what you would do with store bought (except the sausages, they will dry out if not taken off the grill early). The beef you need to keep your eye on, It is lean meat and goes from being cooked perfect to hard very quickly. I enjoy my beef med-rare so it makes cooking a little easier. My wife cooked the rib steaks in a pan according to your website instructions and they came out perfect. As you know the trick is to take the beef off early and let it sit for at least 5 min before serving. this does the final cooking. For people who are use to cooking store bought beef, the meat usually goes from the grill to the plate. I find if you take the meat off one stage before you normally do, it will come out perfect. For example if you like med-done beef, take the meat out at med and the 5 min sitting on the counter will finish it.

    My family loved the beef and pork and it is nice to know where it came from and how it has been raised. Thanks for the tasty meat, I will definitely be ordering more in the future. Keep up the good work, you are doing something that not a lot farmers would. I enjoy dealing with people who still appreciate quality.

    Thank you

    Nick Richardson and family.

  • Hi Jim, I would like to leave you some feedback on our experience with your service.

    The website was easy to navigate and the selection of products was plentiful. The ordering process was easy and our shipment arrived promptly. I must say I was pleasantly surprised at the quantity of meat included in our order. I know it is clearly stated on the website the quantity but until you get your first order it is hard to visualize. I was also impressed with the packaging. The meat was carefully packed and even in its frozen state looked amazingly fresh!

    Our first opportunity to try our first grass fed beef came this weekend where we prepared hamburgers for the BBQ, topped with Apple wood Smoked Cheddar and a fresh organic salad.

    I have been a chef now for over 30 years and have cooked and eaten the most premium cuts and quality of beef available. From Black Stump to wagyu beef I have had them all. With out a doubt this is the best beef I have ever eaten. The beef was lean yet the burgers were juicy and delicious. The flavor of the beef is full bodied yet clean on the palate.

    Best of all the meat is easily digested and leaves you feeling satisfied and energized.

    Beef of this quality at the price you are charging is an incredible bargain.

    Thanks again from another new regular customer

  • Jim, nice talking to you, I am so glad I found you, I have been wanting to make changes in life and health for so long now but just didnt know how, we talked a bit about weight and I have struggled with it all my life, up and down so many times but the problem is that I always went on diets then went back to the way I was eating, I now realize that I need to change the way I eat so the grass fed beef is a great place to start. Here is an article from Dr. Mercola I found interesting. See you Monday.

  • Hi Jim;
    My wife and I want to thank you for all the info provided during our conversation, on the day we picked up our order.
    The quality along with the taste of the beef is exceptional, and will be a returning customer.

    Thanks and Happy New Years,

  • Hi Jim,

    Great meal, had a wonderful roast tonight. I had to fight off the raccoons for the meat left on the porch but I beat them off with a stick. Nice job on the packaging. Only complaint was I did not get a beef tenderloin. Next time I hope.
    Todd - July 11 2014
  • Hi Jim,

    I wanted to thank you and Nicki for your hospitality last week. I'm sorry that I haven't gotten back to you sooner but I've been quite busy with a few of the things on my plate. My business is taking off and I'm going to be pretty busy for the next two weeks at least, so I'm not sure about skiing.

    I've had a chance to try the ground beef and the tenderloin. It's quite simply the best tasting beef I've ever had! I found that I had to cook the ground beef slowly because it is so lean and I even debated adding some oil to the pan. I seared the tenderloin on both sides and cooked it as suggested by Shannon Hayes and it was very tender and had great flavour. When are you going to Milton next, because I'd like to buy some more.

    Thanks again,
    Mark Vidler - July 11 2014
  • Hi Jim!
    I wanted to let you know that you exceeded my expectations both from a quality and a customer service perspective. The beef is absolutely delicious( thanks for your cooking tips!) and you made the whole process from buying to delivery so effortless.

    Thanks so much! You have my business from now on..without a doubt.

  • Hello Jim,

    We just wanted to send you a quick message to let you know how nice your beef is!! We have had a few meals already and the taste is very good. Robert has mastered the BBQ-ing techniques which really isn't all that different from grain fed beef.

    Anyway, thanks again for such a nice visit and for showing us around your farm when we were there.

    Please say hello to your wife for us, and thank her for showing us the horses :O)

    Sincerely
    Suzanne and Robert Bertolas (Rockland, Ontario) - July 11 2014
  • Hello Jim,
