Welcome to the Farm
Keyser Creek Farms is a family run, certified organic beef and dairy operation in Southwestern Ontario. Our focus on regenerative agriculture and clean foods means that everything we do is aimed at creating the healthiest food possible for our entire community.
We have been selling beef for decades, and now we are finally online to share our beef across all of Ontario.
Our goal is to make everything about the online farm-to-freezer shopping experience simple. So, we offer the classic whole, half, and quarter beef for patrons who are ready to fill their freezers; as well as a variety of smaller mixed beef bundles if you don't have space for larger orders or just want to try it out before you go big! We are committed to delivering an easy online checkout, and we'll even ship our farm-to-freezer beef directly to your doorstep!
Yes, we're farmers, but we're parents and shoppers too! We understand how important it is to know, and have confidence in, the products that you're buying - because that's what we want too. We believe an educated customer is the best customer, and that you are the ONLY one who really knows what is going to be the best for your family - you're just looking for the right food from the right source.
So, we're committed to continually sharing news and information about how we farm, and building our FAQS Learning Center so you can check out common questions like:
What is the difference between 'grass-fed' and 'grain-fed', and which one is 'better'?
How does farming organically change the quality of meat? Is it really any better?
Do you use hormones, or antibiotics on your farm? What about GMOs or pesticides?
And we're always open to answering any questions about how we raise our beef, and run our farm!
You can be sure that every animal is born right here on our farm and raised with the guiding principles of regenerative and organic farming. Throughout their entire lives, we focus on top quality feed and animal welfare because we believe this is essential for providing a quality product that is healthy for families and healing for the environment.
We've made it our mission to help busy families create delicious meals. Whether they're fast fixes when you're on-the-go, or savoury dinners for celebrations with friends and family - our selections provide 'in-your-freezer' convenience with premium quality, organic beef.
Because who doesn't want peace of mind at dinner time?
If you're here, then you're someone who cares about the quality of the food you're eating. You're asking questions, learning more, and trying to figure out if our farm is right for you.

When it comes to farm-to-freezer beef...
it's important to understand that there are actually different ways farmers price it: typically, hanging weight vs packaged weight. There are various names used across the industry for these two methods - but which is which, and what exactly are they?
We want to help you sort out the lingo, because we believe real confidence comes with learning and understanding, not marketing. So, it's our responsibility to help you understand what each sales method actually offers because it makes the price look A LOT different! We all know that just because something is "on sale" doesn't make it the best or cheapest option. As a shopper, I want to know that I'm comparing similar products, and then I want to see the unit price. It's all about comparing apples to apples - or, in this case, steaks to steaks!
So, what are you actually getting for your money? Here's a quick comparison.

We pick it up when it's ready, and bring it back to store in our own freezers.
Next, we pack your order and ship it out (the courier literally picks your order out of our freezer!).
Finally, it shows up on your door (or you can opt for on farm pickup - and we'll give you a discount!)

Just put it in your freezer, and you'll have your own quality, organic, delicious beef at your beck and call.

Lots of people hesitate when you talk about buying a SIDE OF BEEF or a WHOLE beef....
What does that even mean? How much beef do you get? How long does it take?
Do I have to take the bones - I don't know what I would with them...
That's okay - they are all great questions - and we are confident that once you know the answers, you'll be so on board with the idea of filling your freezer with beef, you're going to call up family and friends just to brag about the deal you just made.
Family and friends, by the way, are great people to SHARE a larger order with if you don't have space for a whole beef, but you want everyone to benefit from the great price!
Before putting a deposit down, we highly encourage you to read through our FAQs Learning Center. This is where we've tried to answer and explain all the questions you might have about buying big - but if we've missed anything PLEASE LET US KNOW! Sometimes we forget that what is normal to us, is really new to others. If it helps you, it'll probably help others!
"The beef is great!
Had some friends over on the weekend and we cooked that rump roast for 11 hours (low and slow), mmmm.
Also, I checked out your website, and I must say it looks extremely professional. The site is easy to maneuver and click through.”
"Thank you for all the support your family has given us!"

As soon as I came home, we made steaks for dinner and your beef tasted fantastic!"
