Proud Producer of 100% BC Beef in the Thompson Nicola

Tucked away within the benches of the Thompson River near Ashcroft, BC, the Schalles family settled here in the late 1970s amid a climate perfectly suited to raising cattle. With fields covered in sage brush, Grandpa John had a vision of a working farm and the transformation of Cactus Country began. Four generations of the family are now living on the farm together: matriarch Grandma Irma, Terry and Susan—mom and dad—and their son Nic along with his family Tyra, Presli and Carly. Son Brandon manages the cow calf operation and even though son Justin works off the farm, he helps out when he can. Their cattle are finished on a 50/50 grain/forage ration, with most of the grain grown on the farm. Cactus Country Farm is a start to finish operation, with animals being shipped to the abattoir every two weeks.
