Why Whiskey-Aged Beef?

You Won't Be Disappointed!

April 19, 2018

We recently posted a video on our social channels showing the very beginning of our whiskey-aging process. If you love beef, this is the stuff of fantasies – smooth, local whiskey (or whisky, depending on where you’re from) from 40 Creek Distillery being slow-poured over our incredible, farm-raised beef. It’s a beautiful sight!

We’ve talked about our whiskey-aged beef once before, in this blog post, but we’re back at it again with good reason. The Combine restaurant in Simcoe will be serving VG Meats whiskey-aged beef on their menu for a limited time next month. We can’t wait to see what they do with it – and in the meantime, we’d like to tell you a bit more about why we love this product as much as we do.

What We’ve Learned From Tenderness Testing Our Beef

Treating Our Cattle Well

April 5, 2018

As spring weather finally reaches our Simcoe farm and we get to see the cattle enjoying some sunshine, it’s hard to imagine anything else. We’ve written about this before, but it’s worth saying again: we believe in treating our environment and our animals right. This means handling our cattle with care, making sure they have access to open space, fresh water and green grass, and generally looking after them respectfully. Our pastures are never treated with synthetic herbicides or pesticides, and we don’t give our cows any hormones or antibiotics. It’s a good life here on the VG family farm!
