Beef has been produced in Atlantic Canada since the area was first settled and continues to play a significant role in the agriculture sector. Today on Prince Edward Island, our small family farms dot the pastoral landscape where we raise cattle in the traditional way. The animals well-being is our top priority, because we know that keeping cattle healthy and comfortable is essential to producing the highest quality beef. Our cattle enjoy primarily pastured grasses, clover silage and hay, as well as local grains and potatoes. This healthy fare, combined with ethical farming and processing standards, produces exceptional quality beef, rich in marbling and flavour. Our distinctive Prince Edward Island beef is among the best beef in the world.
You care about health. So do we. Because our Certified Beef measures up to the Prince Edward Island Certified Standards of raising, handling and processing, you will feel great about serving it to family and friends.
Prince Edward Island cattle maintain a peaceful, pastoral rural lifestyle, on pasture, active and enjoying the brisk salt air. That’s why Prince Edward Island Certified Beef is in a distinct class of its own. Our beef is characterized by its exquisite flavour, tenderness and texture, making it perfect for any meal. Our farmers embrace the essence of the land and deliver exceptional quality beef for all occasions.
From our farm families to your hungry brood, exceptional quality beef is an important part of Prince Edward Island pride and heritage – and we safeguard it very carefully.
