Farmer Peter Leahy, one of our beef producers, comes from one of the oldest farming families in Ontario. His family has been farming in the Lakefield area for the past 200 years.
Today, he runs Merrylynd Farm, a fully organic and GMO-free farm and mill in Lakefield, Ontario. Peter has been growing organic grains and producing organic beef and chicken since 1998. He made the switch to organics because he believes it makes good sense for the environment and for the community.
Peter suspects his cattle are truly happy, roaming outdoors all year round. In the summer, his herd of Angus Brown cows and bull have their own off-farm holiday at a secluded organic grass pasture to graze and breed.
We’ve had a long-standing relationship with Merryland Farms, selling their organic beef for almost a decade and offering a selection of their frozen steaks, roasts, and ground beef. We can vouch for their beef firsthand – we make our Shepherd’s Pie with it. And if you have eaten their stewing beef and wonder how it’s so tender? It’s cut from sirloin steak. Try it and taste the difference from Ontario’s Merrylynd Farms.
