When you grow up in a family business, you get to know your parents as more than just “Mom and Dad”. Us four VG brothers (Cory, Kyle, Chad and Kevin) were fortunate to see Mom and Dad VG not only as our loving parents but as our teachers and role models. They taught us everything we know about life, love and business – and because it’s Father’s Day this weekend, we want to take a moment and celebrate our dad.
We’re willing to bet there’s someone in your life worth celebrating this Father’s Day – an amazing dad, grandfather, husband, uncle or other father figure who really knocks it out of the park. That guy who works hard, gives his all to his family, isn’t afraid to be silly with his kids and above all, makes his children feel safe and loved. We see you, awesome dads out there, and we’re ready to celebrate you next weekend!
If you’re looking for a gift idea, we have a few ideas. If you want to create a custom gift for the dad in your life, just let us know – we’d be happy to help!
As farmers and beef producers, we care about a lot of things – our staff and customers, the quality of our products, the health and care of our cattle, sustainability and our impact on the earth – not to mention the legacy we’re leaving to the next generation. It’s a lot to think about, and farming with integrity means having big conversations and addressing tough subjects.
Many things produce carbon – manufacturing, driving a car, agriculture, recreation, etc. As a business that seeks to minimize its environmental impact and carbon footprint, we have long been interested in land management strategies that support our values. This isn’t a subject all food producers want to bring up with customers, but we feel that it’s important and on some level, something all Canadians should be talking about.
