The Reban Farms Story
4 generations of family farming
As far as animals go, beef is our specialty at Reban farms. We run a small, 200 head cow calf operation. A few years ago, we decided to start selling our own finished beef to family and friends. Not only did we have a positive response, we also discovered how enjoyable it was connecting with the consumer. It makes all the hard work so rewarding when you get to meet appreciative customers, while helping meet the demand for farm direct beef.
Frequently Asked Questions
See the answers to the questions we get asked most often!

What type of meat do I get with a purchase?
Our standard for how the meat is prepared is a make up of:
However, you can customize your order if you'd like at no additional cost.
Does buying a cow from you, save me money?
When you buy direct from our family farm, you are automatically cutting the margins that the wholesalers and retailers are taking. Across Canada, consumers are paying an average of $19.00/lb. in the store, when averaging several common cuts of beef. Our 1/4, 1/2 and full cow packages are $5.50/lb
