LambHello Everyone,

Old Man Winter snuck up on us this year, but at least the weather is constant — and constantly cold is better than fluctuating temperatures. Our animals have adapted quickly and seem happy and content to eat winter feed.

What about the XL Foods issue?
The XL Foods crisis took everyone by surprise. On TK Ranch we were not prepared for the unbelievable response from consumers looking for alternatives to the conventional meat industry. To alleviate concerns I posted on our blog about how e-coli gets into the food system, and why our TK Ranch program is so unique in the industry. Since that time we have been working very hard to keep our products in stock, and finally as of this week we have almost caught up.

New Order System

After much tweaking and testing we finally launched our on-line order page in early November. Now you can select the quantities of what items you would like in one place without all the copying and pasting. In addition to this, we have added useful links like our product ingredients and details about our beef, lamb and pork packages. Take a look; I think you will like it as much as we do — it certainly simplifies ordering for everyone.

New Payment System

For years we used an antiquated phone system to process credit card payments. This was a very time consuming process and created a lot of paper! But even technophobes like me can enter the 21st century. We now have a mobile credit and debit processing terminal that allows us to take payment at pick-up. So please bring your cards with you as we no longer keep your numbers on file. Thanks.


Please note that we will be closed for two weeks over the holiday season, so please mark the following dates on your calendar:


  • Saturday DECEMBER 8th
  • Friday DECEMBER 14th
    (for pick up of bigger turkeys only, please email for more details)


  • Saturday DECEMBER 22nd
  • Saturday FEBRUARY 2nd

I hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday season. Thank you again for your support — it makes a world of difference in the lives of our animals and makes our way of life sustainable.

Warm Regards,
Colleen Biggs
TK Ranch
