Outwest Ranches is a beef ranch out in South Surrey. They not only sell frozen beef from locally raised cattle, they also have eggs and seasonal nuts such as walnuts and hazelnuts. Carol Sandhoff, the owner of Outwest Ranches has been breeding and raising cattle for 25 years after deciding she wanted to sell her own quality products directly to the customer. This is a true family business as Carol’s mother has been on the farm for 75 years and Carol has been on the farm her entire life.
The cattle raised on Outwest Ranches are purebred Herefords (a type of cattle mainly bred for meat) and some crossbreeds. Carol’s daughter is involved in the Junior Hereford Association which shows the passion this family has towards raising quality cattle. “Raising beef the natural way, no growth hormones or antibiotics, free range eggs and fresh veggies, we all need to eat naturally grown products to ensure a better quality of life,” says Carol.
Carol is a regular at Royal City Farmers Market and will be at our winter market this year. She says “The market is a nice place to socialize with the customers and enjoy their stories of growing up on a farm.”
You can purchase meat from Outwest Ranches at every Thursday market until October as well as at the once-monthly Winter market this year, held on the second Saturday of the month at Holy Trinity Cathedral. She had many different cuts like ground roast as well as soup bones – perfect for making all your favourites.
