Please note than we have temporarily stopped our activities on the farm.
The 2014 price is $13 per pound and the boxes contain around 30 pounds of meat. The exact quantity is only known after the butcher prepares the various cuts. Our price was determined following a review of prices for veal found in supermarkets (average of the various cuts). For the price of commercial meat, you obtain local and all natural grass-fed veal that has never been secluded from its herd as would traditional milk-fed veal.
From our farm to your plate?
Slaughtering occurs when the animal is around 200 days old. It is generally done in the fall (mid-november), at a provincially-inspected abattoir in Thurso (Québec). Each animal is inspected by a veterinarian before slaughter. The butcher then ages the meat for 7 days before preparing the cuts. The boxes contain a variety of standard cuts, individually shrink-wrapped and labelled with the type of cut and weight. The meat is delivered fresh at a convenient location in Gatineau (Hull sector).
