About Us
Located in SW Manitoba, we specialize in regeneratively raised Canadian bison integrated into a diverse poly-culture. We are caretakers of the land, plants, animals, and wildlife and our farm is a bio-diverse ecosystem that works together as a whole. Our bison spend their life grazing all year round and are never in a feedlot or given hormones or antibiotics. Here at Borderland, we offer quality grass finished bison meat. We are proud to hold the title of Manitoba's Outstanding Young Farmer 2018. We welcome anyone to come and visit us at the farm any time!
Practices
"Spray-free" - This farm does not use any chemical fertilizers or inputs in its production system but is not certified organic.
"No-till" - This farm currently uses or is transitioning to, a system of crop rotation that does not include tilling soil.
“Better Labour” - all workers on this farm receive higher than minimum wage.
“Pastured” or "Grass Fed" - A traditional farming technique where animals are raised on pasture rather than being fattened on a feedlot or in a confined facility.
“Antibiotic Free” – Animals must not receive antibiotics at any point in their life – from birth to death, including nursing or pregnant females.
“Free Range” – Free range animals are generally un-caged, often with access to the outdoors.
“Heritage Breeds” – Traditional breeds of animals that were raised for food in the past, but their numbers dwindled during the rise of industrial agriculture.
