We love reconnecting folks to real food, which is why we offer custom farm tours that are organized and scheduled to best fit your group’s unique needs.
This is a great experience for all ages. Seeing your food in action, you and your group will be in the barnyard and out on the pasture with the livestock going about their regular day. You will have a chance to learn about our management practices, see our chickens, sheep, pigs, cows, guard dog, farm cats, and more! If gardening is your thing we can take a wander through the veggie patch as well. We end the tour with some refreshments at the farm store and if there are kids in the group they will surely enjoy playing on our play structure, trampoline and swings.
Tours typically last about 1-1.5 hours and can be scheduled Monday-Saturday. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule and plan your special visit!
This is also a great opportunity to stock up on Farm One Forty products so bring a cooler if you want to shop at the farm store. Please wear shoes and clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty and don’t forget sunscreen and a camera.
Cost: $115 for groups under 25, $5 each per additional person.
What’s the latest trend in Saskatoon restaurants? You’re looking at it: our tender, flavorful cuts of lamb – your choice of chops or rack, shoulder, leg roast, shanks, stewing chunks, and ground. You’ll get the equivalent of a full side (roughly 25 lbs), ready for your classic, ethnic or avant-garde treatment. For detailed information on what's included, see the tables below.
Lamb is processed in November and available for pickup or delivery late November through to December.

The sheep we raise are not wool sheep, but hair sheep which means we don’t shear them; their hair sheds naturally in the spring. When the lambs are butchered we send the lambskins off to a tannery and they produce beautiful and durable rugs, couch throws, car seat covers, crib and stroller liners or whatever you see fit to use them for! The fleece of lambskin has excellent insulating properties and is also resistant to flame, dirt, moisture and static electricity. Lambskin is a natural insulator and has temperature-regulating properties, keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. This makes it a great choice for newborn babies that are learning to regulate their body temperatures. Lambskins have a soothing effect that can result in better sleep and since they are gentle on your skin, they are great for people with sensitive skin or babies that are prone to skin rashes. Wool is considered by the medical profession to be hypoallergenic.
Many old-fashioned recipes require cooking with lard. Despite its demonized reputation, lard is actually better for your health than processed vegetable oils. Leaf lard is the highest grade of lard that comes from the area around the kidneys and loin of the pig. It has a soft, spreadable consistency at room temperature and because it's the most pure form of pork lard it's best used for baking flaky, tender pie crusts, crispy cookies and muffins when you don't want the finished product to have any pork taste at all. When you purchase lard in this form, it will require rendering but it's super easy! See the FAQ section for instructions on how to do that. If you've never eaten foods cooked with lard, you're in for a pleasant surprise!
Whether you’re serving up full-featured breakfasts or a dinner for 2 or 20, you’re sure to find all you could desire here: a few roasts or hams, pork chops, side ribs, and optional bacon & sausage - approximately 50 lbs of meat in total. It’s all gluten free and flavorful, from pigs who ran, wallowed, and enjoyed their lives!
Pork is processed, delivered and/or ready for pickup October through to the beginning of November.
