Beyond Beed and Pork: Unique Meat Offerings from our Farm

Here at Farmway Foods, we specialize in raising and providing unique, high-quality meats that go beyond the traditional staples of beef and pork. As a local, family-owned business, we take great pride in the care and attention we devote to our livestock. This allows us to bring you an amazing variety of flavours and textures to enjo

In addition to classic chicken offerings, we provide more unique poultry like our free-range White Rock chickens. For those seeking a lighter, flaky white fish, we offer fresh salmon, cod, and haddock raised that are wild caught. If you’re looking for a leaner red meat, our premium turkey and lamb selections deliver incredibly robust and distinct flavours.

All of our meats are ethically raised with no added hormones and antibiotic free. We pay close attention to the health and welfare of our animals from birth through processing. This results in meats of unmatched quality and taste. We’re excited to share these unique offerings from our farm with discerning customers seeking an outstanding meal.

Highlighting Our Free-Range Chickens

The farmers we work with take pride in raising chickens in a natural, humane way. Our free-range White Rock chickens enjoy plenty of space to roam in the sunshine and fresh air. This leads to a better life for the chickens and also produces more flavourful, nutritious meat.

Free-range chickens get to engage in natural behaviours like scratching, pecking, and dust-bathing. Their diverse diet includes insects and vegetation alongside their feed. All of this contributes to chickens that are healthy and low-stress.

In terms of nutritional benefits, free-range chicken has higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids compared to conventionally-raised chicken. The meat also contains more vitamin A and vitamin E. The diverse diet and exercise chickens get from free-ranging leads to better-tasting meat as well. The moderate amount of fat is evenly distributed, making the meat juicy and tender.

The farmers we work with raise White Rock breed of chicken. This dual-purpose bird produces both quality meat and eggs. White Rock chickens are cold hardy and heat tolerant, adapting well to various climates. They are docile, calm chickens that are well-suited to free-ranging. White Rock meat is moist and flavourful with a good balance between white and dark meat. We think they produce the best-tasting free-range chicken around.

Salmon

Salmon is known for its heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids and high-quality protein.

Salmon fillets are extremely versatile for cooking. They can be grilled, baked, pan-seared, or added to pasta, salads, and tacos. Salmon cooks quickly, so it’s important not overcook. We recommend cooking until just opaque in the centre.

Our wild caught salmon offers the freshest flavour paired with responsible practices. We’re proud to provide this premium fish as part of our unique meat offerings.

Bringing Quality Cod to the Table

Cod is a mild, flaky white fish that is both delicious and nutritious.

Cod is an excellent source of protein and is low in fat and calories. It contains heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids and is a good source of vitamins B12 and D, as well as minerals like selenium and phosphorus. The mild, slightly sweet flavour makes cod appealing to people of all ages.

The best cooking methods for cod fillets include baking, broiling, sautéing, and grilling. Baking cod in the oven at 400°F for 10-15 minutes results in a tender, flaky texture. Broiling cod under high heat for just 3-5 minutes per side adds char and caramelization. Quickly sautéing cod fillets in olive oil or butter allows the fish to develop a beautiful golden crust while keeping the interior moist. Grilling cod over medium-high heat infuses it with smoky barbecue flavour.

Some delicious recipe ideas for cod fillets include:

  • Baked Cod with Lemon, Garlic & Herbs – A simple weeknight dinner!
  • Panko Crusted Cod – Crispy crunchy crust from toasted breadcrumbs.
  • Grilled Cod Tacos with Pineapple Salsa – Perfect for summer!
  • Cod & Shrimp with Creamy Tomato Sauce – An elegant seafood dish.
  • Curried Cod & Potatoes – Warm Indian spices flavour the flaky fish.

Our premium cod fillets offer a tasty, nutritious protein to enjoy as part of a healthy lifestyle. Try baking, broiling, sautéing or grilling cod for amazing results!

The Flavour of Fresh Haddock

The taste of our haddock is remarkably sweet and delicate, with a tender flake and no “fishy” flavour. The white flesh has a mild taste that adapts well to a variety of preparations, making it a versatile choice for home chefs.

Haddock is delicious when simply seasoned and pan-seared, letting the natural flavours shine through. It also pairs nicely with richer ingredients like lemon-butter sauce or creamy risotto. For easy weeknight meals, try baking haddock fillets topped with breadcrumbs, sautéed spinach, and lemon slices. Or cook up flavourful fish tacos with blackened haddock, fresh pico de gallo, and crunchy cabbage. The options are endless with our fresh, high-quality haddock. We’re proud to provide home cooks with a delicious, sustainable seafood choice.

Our Premium Turkey Offerings

The famers we work with raise premium heritage breed turkeys using humane and sustainable practices. Our turkeys live outdoors with plenty of space to roam and forage on pesticide-free pastures. This natural environment and stress-free lifestyle lead to a better-tasting, more nutritious turkey.

Our heritage turkeys are bred naturally, without artificial hormones or antibiotics. They grow slower than commercial breeds, developing more flavourful meat. The moderate growth rate also contributes to a healthy life for the birds.

We offer turkey breast roast, turkey medallions and ground turkey so you can choose just what you need. Our turkeys have a rich, old-fashioned flavour that really shines when roasted or grilled. The breast meat is juicy and tender while the white meat has a delicious savoury taste.

Some quick tips for cooking our premium turkey:

  • Turkey medallions – Roast or grill them to an internal temperature of 165F. Brining helps keep the lean meat moist.
  • Ground turkey – Use it just like ground beef in burgers, meatballs, chili, etc. Mix in some breadcrumbs to keep it moist.

We’re proud to offer heritage turkeys raised humanely and naturally right here on our family farm. The old-fashioned flavour and humane upbringing really make a difference you can taste.

Lamb Chops

Lamb is quite versatile in cooking. For quick and easy meals, lamb chops can be pan-seared or grilled until they reach your desired doneness. We recommend cooking lamb just until it reaches medium or medium-rare to keep it juicy and flavourful. Resting the meat for 5-10 minutes after cooking allows the juices to redistribute evenly.

Our lamb chops have unmatched flavour and tenderness.

How to Cook These Unique Meats

Our farm offers an array of unique and flavourful meats beyond the standard beef and pork options. Proper cooking is key to bringing out the best in these proteins. Here’s an overview of the best cooking methods for each:

White Rock Chicken

Chicken can be prepared in endless ways. Grilling, baking, sautéing, and roasting are all great options. Aim for an internal temperature of 165°F. Grilling brings out delicious charred flavours, while roasting keeps the meat juicy. For sautéed chicken, cut into smaller pieces to cook quickly over high heat.

Salmon

Salmon fillets do well with fast, hot cooking methods. Grilling is a top choice, allowing the fatty fish to pick up smoky notes. Bake salmon in a 375°F oven for 15-20 minutes. Pan-searing over high heat also creates a nice crust while keeping the inside tender. Cook until opaque and flaky.

Cod

This white, flaky fish calls for gentle cooking. Baking, poaching, and sautéing are ideal. Bake at 400°F for 10-15 minutes. Poach in simmering liquid until opaque, about 10 minutes. For sautéing, use medium-low heat to avoid overcooking the delicate cod. Target an internal temp of 140°F.

Haddock

Haddock has a slightly firmer texture than cod. It holds up well to heartier cooking methods like grilling and broiling. Bake at 375°F until cooked through, about 15 minutes. Pan frying over medium-high heat also gives a nice sear while keeping the fish moist. Cook to an internal temperature of 140°F.

Turkey

For boneless turkey breasts or cutlets, sautéing, grilling, and baking are all great. Cook quickly over high heat, to an internal temp of 165°F to avoid drying out.
