Welcome to Wildfire Farms

Growing and raising food the way nature intended


Our family raise 100% natural grass fed and finished beef.   Our meats are free of drugs, hormones, antibiotics, animal-by-products, and soy.

 

Our Beef

WildFire Farms 2012-79 - Version 2 (1)For 20 years, we’ve had grassfed and finished beef for our family members and in the past few years, we decided to share our grass finished beef with you. Our beef is free of hormones, steroids, fertilizers, animal by-products or antibiotics. Our Angus-crossed beef cattle have been on a diet of grass and forage legumes (clover, alfalfa) for the past 20 years. Our cattle are born, raised and fed on native grass pastures. It begins in spring, when the calves are born on pastures. The cattle are moved from one pasture to the next ensuring a fresh selection of native grasses and forage legumes. Rotational grazing allows the land to replenish and the cattle provide manure fertilization to nourish the soil. During winter months we feed our cattle bailed native grass and forage legumes, which grow in our fields in the summer. We keep our cattle for market 28-36 months to finish, to ensure proper weight gain, nutritional values, quality and flavourful meat. In the summer on Saturdays, you can find us at the Marché St. Norbert Market in Winnipeg. Throughout the year we have selected meeting points where you can pick up your orders. You can order by going to our online store or to contact us.

 

Our Chickens

WildFire Farms 2012-55 - Version 2

Our pastured chickens are raised outdoors from spring to fall. They spend their days outside and forage in plants, eating insects and grains. The chickens we raise are free of drugs, hormones and antibiotics. Our chickens are reared for 5-6months, which allows the chicks to grow at a slow and natural rate.  They are raised to roam freely in a safe outdoor area where they have access to sunshine, fresh air, plants and bugs. They are free to chicken scratch for grubs in manure left over by the cattle in the winter.  Unlike cows they are unable to digest pure grass therefore, in addition they are given a mix of grains and seeds that we mix ourselves. The chicken feed is comprised of barley, field peas (spit peas, black eyed peas, lentils), wheat, oats and minerals/vitamins.  We have chickens available for September – October. Ordering is based on availability due to limited quantities. If you are interested email us ​or check our  online store  to order chickens.

*Chickens are pickup only directly from the farm.

 

Our Pigs

WildFire Farms 2012-30Our Heritage Berkshire and Tamworth pigs are free to roam and dig. They are free to be indoors or outside as the barn door is always open to the outdoor pen.  We raise a few handfuls at a time to limit the cramming of pens. They are fed a combination of grains and organic clippings from our vegetable garden.  Our Heritage Berkshire and Tamworth pigs are 8 – 10 weeks old when we purchase them from a local farmer who breeds heritage breeds.  In late spring we receive a handful of pigs to raise until fall or winter.  They are free to be indoors and outside as the barn door is always open to the outdoor spacious pen.  Our feed is a combination of hemp seed, wheat, barley, oats, field peas kelp and organic garden culls from our vegetable garden. If you are interested check our online store or contact us.
