We are a family, a farm, and interactive members of our local community. As a young expanding family, we have been growing our dream of producing delicious, local, healthy, and clean food. Our farming roots stem back many generations and have created a mentality that respects the animals, the land, and our health conscious consumer’s desire for home-raised meats. Blue Ridge Farms is based on the notion that dedication and attention to detail lead to a quality product.

-Jaelynn W.[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”testimonial” open=”false”]The Best beef and pork that we’ve ever bulk ordered!
We met Jillian at the St. Albert Market and tried some of the steaks.

Needless to say the next weekend we asked to bulk order! We took a tour of the farm, my daughter got to help collect eggs with Jillian, and then we put in our order! I highly recommend their meats!!!
-Rebecca E.[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”testimonial” open=”false”]We are so pleased to have found Blue Ridge Farms. We have tried many of their cuts, including some of their variety meats, which have all been amazing.

We cooked beef liver in our soup, and made 5 meals out of a 3.5lb beef heart. As we are venturing into the world of eating offal, it’s been great sourcing it from responsible and conscious farmers.

We are very thankful to do business with Jillian and Brett – they are wonderful people!
-Katie M.[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”testimonial” open=”false”]We had an opportunity to try the Tomahawk steaks produced at Blue Ridge Farms and I must tell you it was one of the best steaks we had.

We prepared it by thawing it for 3 days in the fridge. We turned on the BBQ and kept it at a constant 225 degrees. We added a smoke box of Mesquite chips to add a bit if smokey flavour. We only seasoned the steaks with salt and pepper before putting it on the grill. We cooked the steaks in indirect heat on the grill until the internal temperature hit about 120 degrees.

Once we were at that temperature we took the steaks off the grill and let them rest for 10 minutes. In the meantime we cranked the heat up on the BBQ. Once 10 minutes passed we seated both sides of the steaks until the internal temperature was between 125 and 130 degrees. When we cut into the steaks they we juiced and equally cooked med rare all the way through.

The taste was unbelievable. Jill and Brett deserve a round of applause for there work to ensure that they produce the best beef around. Thank you so much for the opportunity to taste the fruits of your labor.
