Yeandle Farms, a family farm located near Woodstock, Ontario, is run by Jeff Yeandle and brother-in-law Bob Gilroy. The farm has been producing organic milk since June, 2005, after completing a mandatory four-year organic transition phase. The Yeandles’ herd of 65 Holstein cows is rotationally grazed on fresh grass from April to October, and fed a diet of hay, barley and corn in the winter months.
In 2000, the Yeandle cows were experiencing a variety of health problems. After attending organic seminars, the Yeandles found a close relationship between the soil and cow health, something not commonly talked about in conventional farming circles. By focusing more on quality soils and feed, they found less need for antibiotics, chemical fertilizers, herbicides and sprays and, by eliminating these inputs, they realized that producing organic milk was within their reach.
Since their organic conversion, Jeff and Bob have found that their animals’ immune systems have been much more responsive. “In the past, sick calves required our time and money. Now it seems they have stronger immune systems and are able to respond to illness on their own,” says Bob.
The Yeandle’s careful decision-making earned them a nomination for the 2007 Oxford Agricultural Federation Conservation Tillage Award of Excellence.
Yeandle Farms supplies Organic Meadows.

We are part of a growing global movement of farmers who have decided to work alongside Nature, embracing Organic Farming Methods. We see our farm through the lens of ecology. We know that the quality of food grown here depends on the many intimately related parts of the system. We nourish soil biology using compost and rely on nitrogen fixing clovers and alfalfa to sustain the cycle. We stay away from any toxins that could threaten soil and crop health or compromise the purity of our food. Our animals are where they belong in summer – out in the field – grazing. We select the animals we use for hardiness, disease resistance and quality of the food that goes to our customers. Finally, by connecting directly with families, we offer them the best food money can buy, at an affordable price.

An early innovation in organic poultry has led the Poechmans to a pastured, free-run system of producing organic eggs. Our birds are happy and show their gratitude with their abundant egg-laying habits. Roosters accompany the girls for security & socialization. All the feed is prepared daily, on-farm, with mostly home-grown grains & oilseeds. Our eggs are hand-gathered, sorted and cooled for maximum freshness every day. The eggs are graded at HARC industries in Hanover, a great place for the engagement of the mentally & physically challenged. Our eggs are nature’s golden nugget in a perfect ready-to-serve package.
We started organic farming in 1989 with spelt being our first certified organic crop sold in 1990. We continue to grow spelt still as well as feed for our angus beef herd, which provide us with organic beef. In 2000 we added spelt dehulling to our farm operation, so now we grow, buy, dehull and sell spelt as well as raising Angus cross cows for organic beef.
Our Organic Beef
Our animals are treated humanely and have access to the outdoors for exercise and fresh air during the winter months. As soon as the weather permits and the grasses are ready, they are on pasture in the spring. All of which are requirements for organic certification.
The cows with their calves born in April and May are taken to their designated areas and rotated through pasture fields. A field next to our buildings is for “mob grazing” the calves one year old and older. Mob grazing is when 40 to 50 head of cattle are fenced in a small area (less than 1/4 acre) for 6 – 12 hours to forage the pasture. After they have trampled and eaten that section down, the fence is moved to allow them to dine on a fresh patch of pasture. This style of intensive grazing requires the fence to be moved 3 – 4 times a day. We have incorporated Gallagher Tumblewheels into our fence system, which make the task of rolling the fence line to a new place quick and easy, We have found the calves do well with intensive grazing and the soil has improved over time as well. Periodically some grass/legume seed is top-dressed to keep plant density good.
The use of drugs including antibiotics and growth hormones are avoided, as they are prohibited for organic certification. At first signs of distress, symptoms help diagnose disease or sickness and animals are treated with natural healing methods (i.e. herbal tinctures, homeopathy and natural remedies) like our grandparents used in the old days before pharmaceutical drugs were available. If an animal does not get well by using these methods, we will use conventional medicine. That animal is not sold as organic, but rather into the regular conventional market.
Our milk is processed and sold directly to our customers. As a result we can keep the prices down and make organic dairy products more accessible for everyone. Our community will have back a small dairy processor creating jobs and helping the local economy.
On an organic farm our animals must go outside to exercise and socialize everyday weather permitting. We compost their manure and work it into the soil immediately after application which minimizes smell and pathogens. We use homeopathy to treat our animals for illness, although it is seldom necessary. We think this is because they are eating healthier organic plants and are in an environment that is free from stress as much as possible. As a result, they produce healthier milk.
We are very careful when we take our beef and chicken to the abbatoir. We make sure it is done as humanely as possible. We take this very seriously and we are thankful for the food.

If we say a cut is Organic, it is legitimately Certified Organic, and not “like organic” as many places will say when trying to convince you that what they have is worth buying. Put it this way, if you want a decent tasting steak, you can go to many shops. If you want a great tasting steak that was ethically raised, and is healthy for you and the environment, you come to The Healthy Butcher.”
No, we don’t own our own farm, nor do we want to. We source only from farmers who are passionate about producing the best meat. When we evaluate a farm to add to our offering, we leave no stone unturned. We never turn a blind eye. Starting at the soil, our farms use biodynamic principles – rotating crops and pasturing multiple species of animals – to keep our land healthy. Our animals eat what they were born to eat, not what our industrialized society has dictated they eat.
The breeds are carefully selected to match the terroir of the farm. Processing happens a minimal distance from the farm, and at abattoirs that are best designed to minimize stress. We select from the best, and that’s what makes us great.
What makes our meat so great
The Healthy Butcher’s meat is nothing short of legendary because it is nature’s expression of true gourmet. It’s not easy to always do the right thing, the right way, every time. But we’re passionate about our belief that ethically raised, healthy, delicious meat is possible and affordable.
It ALL starts at the farm. Our family-run farms work to the highest organic standards and are certified by Pro-Cert Organic Systems. Here, our birds are raised on wholesome, non-GMO organic grains with no added antibiotics. They also have space to roam in modern barns with natural light and ventilation, and have access to outdoor pastureland. This more holistic approach helps reduce bird stress, allowing their own immune system to keep them healthy. And we think you’ll agree it makes our products taste a whole lot better too!
We are a small family run farm in central Ontario’s Kawartha Lakes region. We produce certified organic food products. These include Beef (Belgian Blue x Black Angus), Heritage Pork (Berkshire), Poultry (ducks, chickens , eggs, turkeys). We also grow a large vegetable garden with a wide variety of veggies every year.
The O’Briens have built good relationships with neighbours and others in the food production business. We support local businesses.
