Control of your food supply is in your hands. We raise natural, nutritious food: grass-fed beef, pastured poultry, and free-range pork. All right here in Mountain View County, AB!
Choose what you want, how you want. Beef boxes for 2 or 4 people. Pork boxes for 2 or 4, BBQ Pork boxes, Chickens, or a mixed box of Beef, Pork & Chicken. Check us out, and let us be your local farmer!
CSA - YOUR WAY
We are Beef & Greens, also known as Aron & Aleah de Gier. Aron is the Pasture Manager, and Aleah is the Stay-at-Home Labour! We farm on a small acreage in rural Mountain View County, and we love it!
We are committed to providing you with the best, most nutritious, highest quality food that we can produce! We believe in doing things naturally, because Nature knows best!
There is a lot going on on the farm. Follow us on Facebook or join our email list to keep up on the latest and greatest!

Farming isn't easy. But it's worth it! What we need is a little
support to get our season started. That's where you come in!
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. When you get involved, you help local farmers break away from the competitive food industry. We can't compete in price or volume with imported food. But the meat we raise and the veggies we grow are fresh, delicious, and nutritious!
By buying a beef or pork box or signing up for a chicken or veggie share and paying up front, you give us the capital we need to pay the butcher, order chicks and buy seeds and compost. This allows us to get your food to your table at a minimum risk, and you can share in the rewards of the season with us! It's a pretty tasty return on investment!

It's 2021 and things are changing!
2020 was an exciting year for our farm.
Our veggie shares were busier than ever and we returned to the Sundre Farmer's Market. There were a few challenges with our Pastured Chickens (2020 related haha!). But our Beef and Pork boxes went really well, and we branched out into custom 1/4's and 1/2's. More of that this year!
We also bought 2 bred cows, and held back 2 sows last year, who have given us 15 total piglets. Oh, and we had another baby of our own!
CSA Veggie boxes and Pastured Chickens will be cancelled for this year, and we'll be back at the Farmer's Market in Sundre, but with flowers instead of veggies!
"Farming is the life-blood flowing in our veins. We absolutely love waking up to a rooster crowing, and hearing the cows bellowing out in the fields! The only kind of world I want to live in is one where my children can grow up with rubber boots on their feet and a hay fork in their hands!" ~ Aleah de Gier
We have chosen not to run our veggie market garden this year due to the newest addition to our family. However, we will be attempting to grow cut flowers to bring to market. We'll still see you every Friday night at the Sundre Farmer's Market, hopefully with something pretty on our table!
Our beef program will be largely the same as in previous years - but with a stronger focus on custom orders. Can't order a 1/4 or a 1/2 for yourself? Consider joining together with friends and buying as a group!
We are breeding our own piglets this year! 15 have arrived and will be ready in late summer or early fall. We'll be focusing on custom orders for pork as well.
Pastured Chicken. And Turkey?
Nope. We have chosen not to produce pastured chickens or venture into any new areas for this year. Family comes first, and will all the changes that 2020 brought to the industry, it doesn't make sense for us at this time.
This actually isn't a new area for us. We've had laying hens for 3 years, but didn't sell the eggs from the farm. This year, we are expanding the flock and will have far more delicious eggs available!
Thanks for stopping by. We hope that you choose us to be your Local Farmers! There is nothing better than doing what you love, and for us, that's bringing you the best our farm can offer, right to your door!
Have questions? No problem! Send us a message and we will get back to you as soon as we can!
