Redtail Farms is located 3 kilometres south of Castor, Alberta, on a rich mix of rejuvenated grasslands and wetlands.
Our father, Richard Griebel, had a pioneering vision for healing both land and people through food, and understood the integral role that grazing animals on prairie grasses play in realizing these goals.
We continue to move this dream forward, working in a way that builds topsoil and biodiversity, sustains a third generation family farm and provides a nutrient dense product for our customers.
We are committed to ensuring that the land is continually regenerated through the presence of our animals on the land. Using rotational and intensive grazing techniques we look to mimic the bison that so deeply defined the soils and ecology of our area. We believe that when enacted properly agriculture is an opportunity for ecological rejuvenation, and a sustainable future for generations to come.
Instilled into all our practices and products is a dedication towards our environment, community and future generations. This sense of responsibility guides our farming practices.
To slightly paraphrase an old adage, "We do not [only] inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children".
Food is not simply a means of sustenance, it is an opportunity for social and ecological connection. Through the production and distribution of our local, sustainable meats we hope to be the intermediaries between resilient ecological systems and healthy communities and families. When eating our products we hope that you experience this sense of connection and reciprocity.
