THE HERITAGE BELIEF
THE SECRET OF HERITAGE ANGUS BEEF IS IN ITS SIMPLICITY
Heritage Angus Beef is produced from hand picked cattle that graze on the finest grasses and fodders on select feeds. With a passion for agriculture that comes from Canadian Ranching families, Heritage Angus Beef is made from ranch-raised beef that exceeds expectations in its flavour, tenderness and quality.
Embracing time honoured traditional values from all of our ranching families, Heritage Angus Beef is legendary Angus Beef that you can trust and savour.
We are a group of Western Canadian ranching families who are committed to working together to produce quality beef that is ecologically and economically visible. Our values reflect our agricultural heritage, honesty and integrity, trust and respect. At Heritage Angus Beef, how we work is how we live, close to the land, in harmony with nature, connected to the highest quality standards possible. Heritage Angus is committed to working together to promote a sustainable future. Our business is built on a healthy respect for relationships in everything we do. We believe the way plants, animals and people relate in a healthy, sustainable environment is crucial to the health and wellness of the world we share.
The key to producing healthy beef is by having healthy animals living off healthy land. Our cattle spend time on the pasture grazing on the green grass as well as fed a vegetarian feed with a combination of forages and grain. All our cattle have access to fresh clean water and graze off the Canadian prairie pastures when weather permits. All of our Angus cattle are raised without the use of antibiotics, added hormones or steroids. By incorporating the practice of slower, methodical feeding, we know that we can maintain a year round supply of fresh quality beef that consistently meets the high standards our customers expect.
HAND PICKED. HAND RAISED.
The first Angus cattle arrived in Canada in the 1860s but their history stretches back to the 1500s in the countries of Aberdeenshire and Angusshine in northeast Scotland. Thanks to superior genetics, healthy environmental and growing conditions and industry support, Canadian Angus cattle are the number one registered breed in Canada.
You will find our cattle outside for a period of time on grasslands across Western Canada in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Each one of our animals is individually hand-picked and cared for throughout their entire life.
A&W CANADA INITIATIVE
Heritage Angus works alongside A&W Canada with their “Our Beef Guarantee” initiative. This initiative ensures that the ranches A&W work with practice sustainable farming methods such as raising cattle without the use of hormones or steroids. Heritage Angus' ranch near Camrose, Alberta run by our rancher Ed was chosen for this featured film to screen in A&W locations across Canada.
QUALITY, EVERY STEP OF THE WAY
All of our cattle are processed under scrutiny of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) which monitors production, protocol and procedure. This guarantees that our customers receive the world’s highest quality Angus beef with greater tenderness, delicious flavour and improved texture.
Heritage Angus beef is certified Halal by IFANCC.
