Proud Producer of 100% BC Beef on Vancouver Island

Cedar Beef comes from our small family farm, located in the traditional territories of the Snuneymuxw First Nation, at the edge of the Nanaimo River Estuary, in beautiful Cedar, BC (near Nanaimo). All three generations of our family help to run the farm, which provides us the opportunity to live close, and stay connected to, the land and the people we love. Having farmed here for 30 years, we are determined to steward a fertile, healthy land base to sustain our beef cattle and the abundance of natural wildlife that depend on the farm’s rich grasslands. Our Simmental-Red Angus cattle are born on the farm and live in a low stress, natural environment. They are free to roam lush, fertile, highly nutritious forage pastures throughout the grazing season and in winter are supplemented with homegrown grass silage.

Once processed, the beef is dry-aged for 21 days to relax the meat and intensify the flavour. The beef is then cut, wrapped, and frozen at a class ‘A’ abattoir on Vancouver Island. A major benefit of grassfed beef is that the meat is healthier. It has less saturated fat and cholesterol and is much leaner compared to conventional feedlot beef. It also has more vitamin E, beta-carotene, vitamin C, and health-promoting fats, including omega-3 fatty acids and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). The combination of genetics, grass-finishing and dry-aging has resulted in highly nutritious beef, free of hormones and antibiotics, and full of flavour.
