Welcome to our website. Would like to introduce ourselves! Myself, Kelly Worthington and my husband, Jon Lendvoy bought our farm in the Fall of 2010. I was an avid horse girl 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.
Our purebred Galloway and Angus cattle plus commercial program has grown to about 30 cow/calf pairs, along with our retained grass-fed 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, we found about 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 grass-fed 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 that breeder, Ivanleigh Farms, and placed a deposit on a breeding pair.
In 2018, we started producing our very own Rare Kunekune Pasture Pork and proud to be the first retail supplier in Western Canada. We took our pork a step farther and in 2020 started offering Charcuterie. Our pork is now available in various local stores.
In January 2022, we took the plunge and moved our little Farm east of Carstairs to west of Didsbury to a 157 acre Farm to concentrate more on rotational and cover crop grazing.
Stay tuned for our future endeavors!
