Rob Green Meats
LOCAL and SUSTAINABLE
For over 20 years Rob has been providing high quality, local beef, poultry and pork to friends and family from his farm near Kingston, Ontario. His farm is committed to the ethical treatment of animals and the sustainable use of land. Animals raised here range freely on the property during the summer months, and feed on hay grown by Rob in the winter. Rob respects the land he farms and uses responsible agricultural practices to minimize ecological impacts. Use of local feed and farm-grown grasses reduces the environmental footprint left by trucking or shipping.
Straight From The Farm
Industrially-farmed cattle may start off eating grass or grain, but most end up in the feedlot system, where they’re confined in a crowded space to fatten them up quickly – often at the expense of the health and comfort of the animal. Cows that graze freely on grass for most of their lives are not stressed by over-crowding or mass feeding. Many agree that happier, consciously-fed animals produce healthier meat with a richer, more flavourful taste. And since flavour and tenderness take time, all beef is naturally aged for a minimum of 21 days. Rob Green meats do not contain any growth hormones.
Rob operates a small family farm and does not produce the high volumes of a “factory farm”. As such, the meat he produces is available only at selected times. If orders are placed early and regularly, Rob will do his best to manage his livestock to meet demand. Many of Rob’s orders are seasonal, please get in touch to ask what meats are available to order and when they can be ready for purchase.
Note: Currently only beef ordering is supported with an online form. Please use the contact form below to set-up orders for pork or chicken.
