Aveley Ranch

Proud Producer of Premium BC Lamb

Aveley Ranch; a peaceful natural setting where hard work produces abundance from the land. The Moilliet family has always worked together, teaching skills to the younger, respecting the wisdom of the older. Keeping with family tradition, Grandfather’s third and fourth generation continues to shepherd and nurture the flock through life’s seasonal cycle.

Aveley lambs are born through the month of April and then go out to fresh spring pasture with their mothers, only weeks later. Having a broad and diverse selection of over 20 different species of forage, absolutely no grain, and of course, lots of rich milk from their mothers, ensures healthy animals with meat extremely high in omega-3 and CLA fatty acids, Vitamin E and Beta Carotene. These super health benefits are found in very low to non-existent levels in grain finished lambs.

During the summer months, the lambs visit the beautiful alpine meadows of our mountain range where they are protected from predators by guardian dogs and skilled shepherds as they graze the rich alpine salad bars of native fireweed, valerians, and lupine. These high elevation forages have been proven to produce higher levels of CLA fatty acid in the animals that graze them than low elevation forages.

We do not feed any growth hormones of any kind, or grain as mentioned above, and although we administer antibiotics and parasite control products, we do so selectively and sparingly, all the while striving to prevent health problems rather then just treating them.

We believe that the extremely nutritious and natural green diet that we provide our lambs not only offers the customer an incredibly healthy and nutrient dense food, but also an exceptionally tasting meat full of tenderness, flavor, and quality.

Lambs are butchered from September through November when they are properly finished. Orders can be made on our order form and should be placed before September 1st to ensure availability of custom cut options. However orders can be placed up until November 1. Standard cut lambs and individual cuts are available throughout the year as long as supplies last. Once we receive your order we will send you a confirmation e-mail and let you know when your lamb is ready for pick up or arrange delivery if possible.

Please call us at 1.250.676.9574 or email sales@aveleyranch.com

Holmwood Farm

Proud Producer of Premium BC Lamb

Holmwood Farm, owned and operated by Gillian Watt, is located 30 minutes east of Kamloops at 1996 Barnhartvale Road.  The farm is home to 60 ewes and 2 rams who raise over 100 lambs each year.  Gillian and her family also have 4 border collie dogs, 2 horses and a llama who help guard the sheep. The sheep graze on irrigated and natural hillside pastures through the summer months and are fed hay from nearby ranches during the winter.  They are also given free choice salt and mineral, to ensure they have optimum levels of micronutrients throughout the year.  The ewes are sheared once per year in late April and the wool is sent to Lethbridge for processing, usually in early September.

Owner Gillian enjoys showing visitors the farm and when in season, you can pick a few vegetables to take home with your lamb.  You can order your lamb by phone or email. We deliver right to your home or you can visit the farm to pick it up.  In season, our lamb is also available at Market Fresh Foods in Dallas and at The Farm Store in Yarrow, B.C.Nestled in the beautiful Barnhartvale area, near Kamloops, Holmwood Farm raises quality grassfed lamb.

Parry Bay Sheep Farm

Proud Producer of Premium BC Lamb

Parry Bay Sheep Farm is a mixed farm that has been operating for thirty years in the Metchosin area. We also lease pasture land throughout the region, so our sheep can be seen grazing in the Highlands, North Saanich and the Mount Newton Valley. Our lamb can be found from July to February, in many fine butcher shops and restaurants in Victoria. Our wheat, grown cooperatively with Stillmeadow Farm, is used by Wild Fire Bakery on Quadra Street to make their wonderful whole wheat breads.

We strive to farm in a sensible and sustainable way. We use manures as much as possible for nutrient on our fields, and rotate crops for maximum soil health. It has been great fun to continually experiment with different farming methods, including heritage grains.

Otter Lake Farm

Proud Producer of Premium BC Lamb

At Otter Lake Farm, Anna Green and Dan Hopkins, raise and sell Canadian Style Purebred Suffolk Sheep. We sell breeding stock as well as raise lamb for market. Our lambs grow quickly to produce a high quality, lean and muscular carcass.  Customers may choose lamb custom cut to your specifications, sold by the 1/2 or whole lamb. We also sell lamb by the cut. Periodically we have  Sausage, Smokies and Pepperoni available. We accept payment by PalPal on our website otterlakefarm.ca.

As our name implies we are on Otter Lake, south of Armstrong in the Okanagan Valley and have become appreciators of the seasons on the lake. Our breeding program has developed a strong flock of ewes and rams. They have clean black faces and legs while their bodies are covered with short white wool. They possess the classic Suffolk characteristics with good bone, long loin and a strong croup to enhance any flock or for market.

Farm dogs, Border Collie, Sky, and Australian Shepherd, Ace, help when moving the flock. Our Marema, Rosie, is the protector of the sheep who lives with the flock. Of course, cats and horses are all part of the menagerie.

Farming is the lifestyle we choose, complete with hard work and long winter nights at the barn. It’s all worth it when we get to witness the birth of another crop of healthy lambs.

Circle Two Ranch

Proud Producer of Premium BC Lamb

Situated at the top of Anarchist Mountain the Circle Two Ranch looks out onto a 180 degree view of fields, mountains, and forests. Grant and Holley purchased the family ranch from Art and Norah at the beginning of 2015. Their two sons are the fourth generation to live on the ranch. Art and Norah once ran the largest purebred Hereford herd in BC. Grant and Holley are now working on building up their cow herd with the help, knowledge, and experience of Art and Norah. They purchased a small herd of Hereford/Angus cross cows and calves in the winter of 2014.

While their herd is small, Grant and Holley buy quality BC yearlings to finish on a grain ration, which Art developed himself. This ration leaves the meat boasting with flavour and tenderness and has their customers wanting more.

In addition to beef, the Harfmans have also added sheep to the ranch. Their small herd of Cheviot cross ewes originated in Saskatchewan. With a Suffolk/Charollais ram and the ability to turn the ewes and lambs out onto 100+ acres to graze, these grass fed lambs finish in September/October. They are well-muscled and turn out to be nice carcasses, one of which won the carcass class at the Rock Creek Fall Fair in 2014.
