We opened our retail doors in September 2003 and began as Acres of Blessings, Mennonite Meats. The original business was purchased from a Mennonite farmer located on a farm in Newcastle and was moved to downtown Whitby. For several years we continued to purchase our meats exclusively from Mennonite farmers, they had steered clear of the factory farming frenzy and maintained traditional farming methods. Fortunately, many family farms have returned to sustainable farming practices and today we have sourced local farmers in addition to our Mennonite supplied products with our goal to bring our customers wholesome meats from farmers that use only the healthiest natural and traditional farming methods.
We are a family-owned and operated store whose vision is simply to source and supply to you, our customers, healthy meats. This means humane treatment of animals, no steroids, hormones, dyes, water injection or systematic use of antibiotic treatments.
