Our mission is to share quality meat with families across Alberta. The Ranch follows AGW approved animal welfare practices including low stress handling, late spring calving, fence-line weaning and humane butchering facility guidelines. We have focused in the last decade on soil improvement through regenerative agriculture, this movement is improving our environmental sustainability, producing improved grass quality and quantity for our animals and is transitioning everything on the ranch to a system more in tune with nature. Our cattle play a very integral role in our ranch ecosystem and are a byproduct of careful handling, researched grazing and going against the grain of main stream industrial agriculture. Our aim is to produce nutrient dense beef with our consumer in mind not just our bottom line.
All of our beef is provincially inspected, 100% grass fed and is given a unique flavour with a 18-21 day dry age. We primarily sell 1/4, 1/2 and whole beef. We strive to guide our customers to shop seasonally when farm products are ready for harvest and step by step assist them with customizing their beef cuts to fit exactly how they cook and their family size. We know shopping in bulk just isn’t feasible for all families for many reasons so we also offer smaller curated sample packages and a unique subscription program for our local area. Reach out about custom orders and specialized requests:)
Flaghill Ranch is a family ranch in East Central Alberta raising certified grass fed & grass finished black angus beef. We are a multigenerational ranch, founders Leo & Donna Johnson with middle daughter Justine & husband Carson Berry. Together we raise our cattle from birth to butcher, with the highest standards of animal welfare. Direct marketing our beef started over 10 years ago when we saw the disconnect between food and farm, we continued on this journey to educate consumers about food production, share amazing beef and strive to create a sustainable ranch model for our future generations.
Grass fed and finished beef has benefit to both human consumption as well as the welfare and health of the animal. Grass fed beef is high in omega 3 fatty acids and beta carotene, which are two heart healthy nutrients. Organs harvested from young 100% grass fed beef are also in exceptional condition, consumption of a balanced diet (various forages) prevents damage caused by high protein diets. The grass fed animal has decreased exposure to illness caused by confined living conditions and benefits from low stress handling. Our homegrown pasture raised beef operation is a unique balance of environmental stewardship, animal welfare and sustainability of the family farm model.
