Harvest Haven Meats
Harvest Haven Meats, which include beef, veal, lamb, chicken, and turkey, are a cut above the rest. Our customers say they are the best they have ever eaten.
What makes Harvest Haven meats superior? A number of important factors give them their special quality and flavor.
All the livestock is grass-fed, even the chickens and turkeys. The cattle and sheep are on lush, green pasture during the summer; in winter they are fed hay which has been baled at its prime. Although the chickens and turkeys are not on pasture, they get freshly picked greens daily.
Harvest Haven poultry has plenty of fresh air, sunshine, and room to roam. Turkeys and chickens are not so different from humans. We do not thrive when deprived of sunshine, fresh air, good food, and exercise. Never mind sitting in our own feces, crowded shoulder to shoulder in a high humidity room, eating rendered animal guts! Birds given high quality food and a proper environment are happy and healthy. (Letter to the Ontario Minister of Agriculture on this subject)
We focus on keeping our livestock in optimal health, prevention always being the best strategy. Harvest Haven livestock is given organic feed, supplemented with kelp and highly mineralized, unprocessed salt to supply even rare trace minerals in balance. And we have seen the results; healthy, vibrant, problem-free animals.
Grander Living Water is also a very important and unique factor in Harvest Haven animal husbandry. The reaction of livestock to this water has been dramatic. The neighbor’s cattle knock over fences to gain access to our Grander water, though they have water from the same source (not Granderized) on their side of the fence (more about Grander Living Water Technology).
The result is that our animals are raised without antibiotics, vaccinations or hormones. Some of our customers who were diagnosed as “allergic” to meat, are able to enjoy Harvest Haven meat with no reactions, discovering that they were allergic not to meat, but rather to antibiotics, hormones, or other contaminants of factory farm products.
We take personal care in the processing of all our meats. Someone from Harvest Haven supervises each step to be sure the animals are treated right and that the end product is processed and packaged for our customers’ satisfaction.
Individual cuts of beef and lamb, as well as whole chickens, turkeys and parts are always available in our freezers. Fresh meats and special cuts can be ordered.
Unique to Harvest Haven is the diverse selection of tasty sausages: fresh and smoked beef, lamb and turkey. We have beef and turkey cold cuts, too. All the prepared meats are free of MSG, nitrates, nitrites, or fillers - nothing but our wholesome meat and the skills of a local sausage maker.
Harvest Haven has taken every step to provide the best that can be. Don’t take our word for it. You know what you need to do! (Harvest Haven Product Lists)
Here’s what our customers say…
“The chickens are great. At Harvest Haven, they always have very interesting veggies and some 'New Turkeys' now.”
“That was the most delicious turkey that we ever had. It was juicy and tender and cooked so evenly. Even the white meat was juicy and the dark was so flavourful.”
- Carol Noble
“My family have had organic turkeys in the past, but not from Harvest Haven and all commented on how delicious the turkey from here was. Cooked evenly, browned beautifully. Could have been on the cover of a cooking magazine. Delicious!”
- Marija Boh
"I deep-fried my turkey and injected it with garlic and butter. It was very moist and tender. Delicious."
- Brian Ehnes
"Best turkey we've eaten in a long while! Brought back memories of the ones my parents raised when I was a kid. They're even better when done on the barbeque. Although we didn't plan to, our stove element burned out just as we were ready to put the bird in the oven. What to do? Fortunately it was nice enough to barbeque and 3 1/2 hours later we were sitting down to a marvelous turkey dinner. We are looking forward to next year's batch although hopefully we won't have any more stove surprises."
- Gary and Brenda T.
"Hello. I bought a turkey from you for our Christmas dinner this past year. I have to tell you it was the most delicious bird I have ever eaten. My whole family agreed. Even the leftovers three days later were tasty and moist. Sorry for taking so long to give you that feedback. Now I am looking for organic chickens. Do you have any? Thanks."
