As part of our community-focused initiative, Farmshare is proud to source all of our products locally. Our chicken is raised without antibiotics, vegtable grain fed and grown exclusively by Ontario farmers.
What makes our chicken our special? Air-chilling.
When chicken is processed, it needs to be cooled. This is done by either soaking the chicken in cold water, the method used by the majority of producers in the province, or by air-chilling. The difference is that water cooling can increase the weight by up to 15%. Air chilling ensures that our customers receive only chicken; no water, no additives or preservatives.
Chicken is the most widely consumed protein in this province. Farmshare promises to deliver premium quality and a clean eating experience.
The Nolan family's rich history of cattle farming in Canada started in 1902 when they founded Artisan Farms. In 1973, they expanded their operations from Iron Springs, Alberta to Markdale, Ontario. Today, they proudly operate the only federally inspected Angus Raised Without Antibiotics (RWA) Beef program in Ontario. As members of the Canadian Roundtable for Sustainable & Verified Beef Producers, Artisan Farms pride themselves on ethical and socially responsible humane farm care. All of their cattle are:
Heritage Angus Breed verified by the Canadian Angus Association
Never given antibiotics, hormones or steroids, ever.
From farms certified VBP+ for ethical handling and sustainability
Fed a 100% vegetarian diet, fully traceable in a closed value chain from farm-to-table
American Kobe (Wagyu) Angus beef is celebrated by chefs and beef connoisseurs throughout the world and featured in a number of Michelin starred restaurants. Snake River Farms Wagyu/Angus cross cattle are raised along the high plain of the Snake River in Eastern Idaho. Their proprietary herd is one of the most highly regarded groups of American Wagyu cattle in the world. We have adopted many aspects of the heritage-steeped Japanese feeding method which takes up to four times longer than traditional U.S. cattle production methods. The result is stunningly beautiful beef that’s extremely tender, intensely flavourful, and a one of kind dining experience.
Local, seasonal ingredients are the cornerstone of all products offered by Farmshare.
Our Beef is all AAA or higher, traditionally raised by Ontario Beef Farmers. Hand carved and aged 31 days for optimal flavour and consistency.
