Sponsorship & Government Grants ...  Artisan Farms does not receive any sponsor monies nor has received any federal or provincial grant monies. We offer this information as an act of transparency to our customers, and we owe no favours to any sponsor or body.

We do however, sponsor many initiative as we believe in giving back and being a strong positive community presence, with a sense of responsiboty at all levels --  people, planet, animals and resources.  

We are farmer owned, and farmer focused. Farmers First is our moto ...  we wish no harm or ill will to any party, but we believe in certain production methods and work with like minded farmers in our production methods.   


Artisan Farms believes in genetic improvement for beef, lamb, veal, pork and poultry production efficiencies ... we have devoted decades and three generations or more to genetic improvement, through selecting the best animals and breeding them.  No science, just the use of information for selecting the best animals for meat production being mindful to humane care and sustainability. 

Background 1996  

Fall of 1996, Artisan Farms senior management team attended the Canadian Cattlemen's Association in Calgary on Quality Starts Here conference and initiative ...  at this event, we stood up and offered our viewpoints as cow calf producers.  Our take away and observation was that the crowd was heavily attended by big pharma and service companies whom supplied and ultimately sponsored these national and provincial associations. 

CBIC 2016    Canadian Beef Industry Conference  

Again, in the summer of 2016, Artisan Farms senior management attended this national beef conference which was a great effort on all four major national organizations to organized it ....  CCA, CBBC, Canada Beef Inc, and CRBC ...  it was a very well organized meeting and many informative presentations were made.
