About Our Natural Meat
Our Natural Meat is raised just as nature intended on farms run by local Ontario Mennonite families. All of our Animals are allowed to pasture freely on the food that they were designed to eat. This means that our cattle eat grass exclusively. The farmers also practice planned pasturing, which rotates our cattle from field to field to prevent over grazing. Our farms and surrounding land also have a strict no pesticide policy, which guarantees the animals are eating a chemical free diet. Also, because our animals are able to eat what nature intended we do not need to use any antibiotics, and can guarantee fully antibiotic free meat. Lastly, our animals are raised to maturity naturally without the use of growth hormones.
All of Brooker’s Natural Meat products are processed from provincially inspected plants. Consumers can rest assured that Ontario has one of the most comprehensive provincial meat inspection systems in Canada. Anytime slaughter is taking place at one of the licensed abattoirs used by Brooker's, an OMAFRA (Ontario Ministry of Argiculture Food & Rural Affairs) inspector must be present. Animals are inspected before and after slaughter to ensure that no unhealthy animals are introduced to the food chain. The OMAFRA inspector also is responsible for inspecting the premises and operational practices.
