Who We Are
Sandy Acres Farm is a third generation family run farm that has been in operation since 1958. Our high quality beef and pork are raised using all natural feed produced on the farm or bought locally. In 1992, Sandy Acres Farm was recognized by the Thunder Bay Soil and Crop Association as a Soil and Water Conservation Farm because of our efforts on farm waste management. We also maintain 18 acres of untouched marsh and wetlands. This property includes 2 ponds and an abundance of waterfowl, plants and wildlife. Thank you for visiting our site and learning about us and where your food comes from. We look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
About Our Animals
We run a mixed herd of Black Angus cows and Limousin cows. Limousin, an exotic breed originally from the Limousin region in France, are known for their muscular build, feed efficiency, ease of management and comparable calving ease to other breeds.Limousin cattle produce the leaner cuts of beef that have become a staple of the modern market. They generally dress out at 63.4% and boast the highest Rib-eye area. The naturally polled Black Angus, which has good marbling and is the most popular cow in North America, is the newest addition to our herd. Our long and lean pork are given the same care that the cows receive, producing the highest quality product possible.
Our standards are high because we believe in bringing quality to your plate.
Our cows free range in pasture fields and grass lands all summer and eat our hay throughout the winter months. All our animal feed is produced and mixed on the farm. Calves have unlimited hay as well as a grain ration twice a day and our hogs are finished on mixed grains before going to the abattoir.
