“Idlewild Ranch is a Buffalo Ranch with 170 Plains Buffalo cows. We have a cow calf operation on 2000 acres of mostly tame pasture. In spite of our northern latitude (56 degrees north) our Buffalo cows graze 9 to 10 months each year and are fed the remaining time, usually February and March. We feed our calves and yearlings from October to May.”

Registered Purebred & Percentage Boers
“With past backgrounds in both purebred beef cattle and holstein cattle, we are firmly rooted in agriculture and are familiar with the careful selection it takes to build up a herd of productive and efficient females that meet the needs of both the terminal and replacement breeding stock markets.
Our primary business is our family-run butcher shop where we market a combination of homegrown and locally raised fresh meat products. Our work in the butcher shop means we see first-hand the importance of meat animals that are well muscled, fast growing and high yeilding. Our experience with beef cattle has helped us to see the benefits of performance testing and how using this data can help to select for those fast growing and high yeilding individuals mentioned above. As a result, we are taking full advantage of using the Goat Herd Improvement Program (GHIP) and the Type Evaluation Program, both offered by the Canadian Meat Goat Association.
As a foundation for our Boer herd we have selected animals that are structurally sound and from healthy, solid, productive families and herds. We are using the aforementioned tools to work towards our goals of top performance type animals with sound structure and that remain true to breed standards. We want our customers to be able to rely on our stock to bring about improvements in their own herds. On our website you will see up-to-date performance information on all animals where it is available in order to help you make your own informed decisions when purchasing stock to add to your herd. Please feel free to contact us at any time with questions about individual animals. We are happy to work with you in purchasing animals that are the right fit for the goals you are trying to achieve in your own herd.”

“Filler free, handmade Teal’s Sausage, local pork, beef and goat meat.
Our Sausage and Pork
Teal’s Pure Pork Sausage is made using the original recipe dating back to 1915. This farmers-style, course ground fresh sausage is made using the entire pig rather than just the “trim”. We use a natural casing and do not add any fillers or artificial preservatives. The result is a sausage with a distinct “meaty” taste that can be enjoyed by all. All of our sows are sourced from a single local family farm.
Besides our sausage we carry a full line of delicious pork products. Some of our most popular include, our thick cut pork chops, beautifully smoked side bacon, and pork roasts custom cut and tied.
There is nothing nicer than a beautiful cut of beef to make your family supper something special! Most of our beef is sourced from Anna’s parents’ family farm (Bennville Limousins) where they have been raising quality purebred beef cattle for several decades now. The Bennville herd located just meters up the road from the butcher shop is a herd of purebred Limousin Beef cattle. The Limousin breed is known world-wide for producing lean yet tender and flavourful beef, traits that make it a top pick around the world. The cattle spend most of the year on pasture. During the cold or wet months the herd is housed in south facing open front barns with access to the outdoors at all times. Cattle are fed a combination of grass and homegrown hay and grains. There are no growth hormones used. Proper nutrition, a comfortable living environment and sound herd health protocols are main focuses. All of our beef comes from young animals, not cull cows, and is aged a minimum of 14 days. Guaranteed to be tender and flavourful, you just can’t get beef like this in the grocery store.”

Queensville, East Gwillimbury Township
unpasteurized honey, bee products
Ontario beekeeper, farm in the Queensville area, East Gwillimbury Township, 13km from Newmarket.
Unpasteurized honey and bee products sold through farm gate sales.
We established the Honey bee hives in a rich meadow of wildflowers, red clover, wild strawberries, and within 50 metres of the 120 year old apple orchard. Our operation consists of a modest number of hives. Most of the operation is performed manually. We no not use perticides or herbicides on our fields and orchards. The extraction and processing of the honey is performed without any chemicals. Our product is a premium, unpasteurized,100% pure, all natural Ontario honey.
Extracting the honey is performed twice a year – once in the spring and once in the late summer. This allows us to produce two very distinctive flavours of honey each year, a “Spring Blossom” and late “Summer Wildflower”. Occasionally, as the weather permits we experience an “Indian Summer”. If the bees produce an abundance of honey we extract a third run called our “Autumn Gold” honey.
Each of our honey products are quite different. It is exciting to discover the different flavours present and the different aromas captured in each of these superb honeys.

buchwheat pillows, flax seed heat wraps
After deciding to open ComfyComfy Canada, Melissa and Danny debated about whether to keep it a U.S. product or change it to a Canadian one. Melissa wanted to support the Canadian economy and similarly, Danny wanted to support the U.S. economy. Their solution? Fill the pillows with Canadian-grown buckwheat hulls or Canadian-grown flax seed, and have them filled and packed in Canada while continuing to have the quality cases sewn by the Mennonite family in rural New York state who also produces casings for ComfyComfy in the USA.
Now, we are proud to present ComfyComfy Canada:
Handmade in Canada and USA.
