Beef direct from the farm raised from birth on our pastures and fields without antibiotics or hormones
We are a fourth generation family farm south of Chatham Ontario. We have a mixed farming operation with vegetable crops (sweet-corn, green beans) and field crops (corn and beans & wheat) as well as a herd of 350 beef cows. We are known as an innovative farm as we are not afraid to try new operational techniques.
We have a herd of 350 cows. We raise, finish and sell our beef in our retail store. We do not injected hormones or antibiotics in our meat, and there are no additives.Every animal can be fully traced with an individual ID tag and we use ultrasound for fat and marbling content.
In 2009 we opened the Buis Beef retail store on the farm to promote our beef and farm with all of its farming practices.
We also participate in field trials and always share our stories and experiences with bus tours, local college beef classes and many interested rural and urban consumers.
We hand pick only the best cattle from our mixed herd for our store to maintain the premium quality beef that can only be found fresh from the farm.
For four generations, we have raised our cattle using the latest best-practices to ensure responsible stewardship of the soil, conservation of the environment, and ethical farming practices.
From John VanRaay and Martin Buis who started it all, to the next generations of Mike and Joanne Buis and Theresa Buis, we are family owned, family-run and proud members of the Chatham-Kent farming community. Active in agricultural organizations and even teaching our environmental farming practice in many colleges and universities across the USA and Canada, we continue to look after the land and raise exception beef.
Come and taste the results of 87 years of experience of raising high-quality, ethical and sustainably raised beef.
