As a 4th generation family operation, the Toews farm, run by Howard and Brad Toews, is based out of Watrous Saskatchewan. Howards grandfather started the farm in 1928, passed it to Howards father Rudy in 1952 and then Howard and his wife Lucille began ranching in 1977. Over the years the farm has slowly transitioned from having cattle and crops to being a full cattle based operation. In 2005, Howards son Brad and his wife Angel joined the operation and the father son team continues to operate the farm today. As the cattle industry changes and grows, the Toews stay true to their core values of good stewardship of land and resources, and ethical and humane treatment of all animals entrusted in their care. When it comes to raising Beretta cattle, we take great care and pride in selecting our farming partners. Partnering with the Toews was an obvious and ‘natural’ fit.
Beretta Ranch Story:
Over the past few decades we’ve grown from one small farm in King City, ON to having dozens of ranching partners across Canada. Now our ‘Good Food Journey’ is changing the business once more and this time we’re opening our barn doors globally. Our search for ranching families that share the same ethics as we do has brought us all the way to the Australian Channel Country. Located in the heart of the Australian outback, it can easily be called ‘natures perfect farm.’
Overrun with riverbeds and home to an annual wet season that sparks the growth of over 250 species of wild grasses and plants, we quickly realized Channel Country could provide us with something the Canadian climate never could. A year round, organic beef program, where the cattle are raised on a 100% all grass diet. Sharing what matters.
