About Our Farm!

Additional Information

  

Welcome to our website. Would like to introduce ourselves! Myself, Kelly Worthington and my partner Jon Lendvoy bought our farm in the Fall of 2010. I was an avid horse gal with always the desire for breeding and Jon an outdoorsman, hunter and fisherman. Not long into renovations, we decided we wanted to do some grass steers. Like most people, we went to the auction and bought some 600lb steers. We learned quickly that we didn’t know their background, health and parentage. After doing research and wanting to provide our co-workers, family and friends with a healthier beef choice, we found Galloway cattle. Galloways perform outstanding on grass and with their ability to internally marble, grain was not required.  We contacted a few registered Galloway breeders and bought our first cow/calf pair and three yearling heifers. Our grassfed beef program grew and we are lucky to have such devoted customers for almost nine years now but to be able to grow our business and offer our products to new customers.

 

Our purebred cattle and commercial program has grown to about 30 cow/calf pairs, along with our retained grassfed steers. We have a keen eye for growth rates and producing finished animals by 18-20 months of age based on a forage alone diet.


As our beef program grew, our customers always asked if we did pork. It was never an option as we did not enjoy the mess we always heard pigs made, the rooting, hard to contain in a fenced area and the aggressiveness the adults potentially could have. 


In 2015, after watching TV and maybe a slight addiction to Kijiji, we saw a new breed of swine that had arrived into Canada, Kunekune Pigs. They were well known for the gentle demeanor, easy to contain, and the best no rooting. We knew instantly this pig breed would work with our grassfed beef. We bought our first pair from two separate breeders and a pair from a new breeder that had just done an outstanding import from one of the top breeders in the United States who concentrated on Kunekune Pasture Pork. We contacted Ivanleigh Farms located in Ontario, Canada, and placed a deposit on a breeding pair. Fast forward to 2019, we currently have a herd of close to 100 Kunekunes, including breeding stock and our pasture pork stock. In 2018, we started producing our very own Rare Kunekune Pasture Pork and proud to be the first supplier in Alberta, Canada. 


Stay tuned for our future endeavors!
