TK Ranch offers humanely raised, quality grass-fed beef and lamb, heritage pork, free-range chicken and turkey. We offer the following testimonials from our customers.
Just wanted to pass on how much my husband and I are enjoying our order so far! We devoured the breakfast sausages (delicious) and the chicken burgers I made using the ground chicken were the best we've had. We can't wait to grill some of those steaks tonight.
The superior quality is evident in your products. I also appreciate the packaging which is convenient and easy to store in the freezer. But the most important factor for me is the treatment of the animals. It was your commitment to animal welfare that sets you apart from the other choices out there. I am a strong believer in treating animals with care and respect!
My entire experience with you so far has been awesome. I was late arriving to the Superstore to pick up my order (I went to the wrong location! oops) and the ladies were so very patient and friendly with me.
I hope to never purchase meat products from a grocery store again, so long as I can order from you.
THANK YOU for doing what you do.
Sonia & Brad M.
I just had to write and tell you how thrilled we are with your meat!
This is our third order and my family and I can never get over how different your products taste than the substandard ones we had been buying in grocery stores all these years!
I have cooked many pork roasts over the years, but the one we had last night was a whole different experience!
My husband was so sad that I only ordered one!
The chorizo and fennel sausages are amazing too!
People are being duped into believing the stuff they buy in large chain grocery stores is the way meat tastes!
Thank you so much for all the hard work you do to provide people with a healthy,ethical and yummy alternative!
Thanks Colleen! I just want to say again how much I appreciate the way you run your ranch. I can't imagine buying my meat from anywhere else! Literally. I hope you and your family can always continue to ethically raise and process the animals we depend on for food.
I have been ordering for the last 5 years or so. I love the quality, the packaging and the Team! I order for myself and friends. It has expanded over the years with my friends whom are ordering. I can't say enough good things about the service I receive and knowing where my meat is coming from.
I love stocking my freezer up and enjoying not having to shop for meat at the grocery store!
My husband and I wanted to share what a lovely retail experience we had when picking up our first order of meat from TK Ranch. It was a cold November day, and we were met with such warm hearts. Colleen & Dylan greeted us with such sincerity, and huge smiles. This family represents the good in the world. They are the type of people you would love to have as neighbours, or family! The pick up system they created was so convenient, we picked up 5 minutes from our home.
We are looking forward to making a positive change in our life — by switching to ethical grass fed animals. By the way Colleen and Dylan talked so lovingly about their farm — you can be sure they love their animals. No growth hormones or antibiotics! Just pure, delicious meat — the way we were intended to eat. We just finished cooking our first beef roast, and it was the best meat I ever tasted. Not only that, but all the meat we received was labeled so nicely — so easy to find what we are looking for in our freezer! We will NOT be able to eat or buy supermarket meat ever again.
TK Ranch is another piece of the puzzle in our journey in health and wellness. Thank you for harvesting such a great product, and for your love of animals and the earth!

Hello Colleen.I wanted to let you knowthat I was in a chill cook off at my work today. We had 8 competitors and about 70 people tasted. I used all organic ingredients and of course grass fed beef from TK Ranch, which I told every person who tried!! They thought it was so neat and were very interested that I told them the farm the beef was coming from. I ended up winning first place and thought I would let you know as the main reason was the great tasting beef! Your orders should increase in Edmonton as a result!
Have a good night.
I was just taking inventory in our freezer and I realized that we needed to order some more wonderful meat from TK Ranch. I had been putting it off because I didn't want to co-ordinate the delivery, making sure someone would be home or getting delivered to my husband's work. So I was pleasantly surprised when I logged on and see your new delivery systems. Can I say that I love it! What a great idea! Saturday's and close to home no less.
Thank you, this just makes it one step easier to buy local, healthy meat for my family.
I wanted to write and let you know that our family, friends and relatives thought your turkey was the best that they had ever eaten. Delicious and juicy. You are obviously doing something right! I feel better knowing I ate a happy turkey and not one locked up in a cage and in distress. Thank you for making our Thanksgiving feast so tasty!
I just wanted to thank you for the clear and concise blog on your processing methods. I have been urging people to take a closer look at the meat they have been eating for years. (mostly end up talking to blank faces) I love quality meats and have had an issue with the handling of the animals since my summer job working for Paletta Bros in Burlington Ont. I actually became a vegetarian until I found producers who understood the value of a humanitarian approach to the treatment of animals overall.
I am relatively new to Calgary and have refused to change my standards. I shop at Natural Foods on 10th Ave SW and commend you on your choice of distributor.
It's not always easy having higher standards and I applaud you sticking with yours.
By the way I heard of you because I went looking.
Just wanted to say many, many thanks!!! I'm growing more and more concerned about industrial farming and it's impact on the environment as well as on consumers' health. My concern has finally spurred me on into taking action to vote with my dollar. We do not have beef or pork in this house due to environmental concerns however, we do eat chicken occasionally.
Having said that, we will most definitely be purchasing all chicken from your ranch from the moment our frozen supply dwindles. I'm enthusiastic to have found your website as I was about to declare myself vegetarian! :)
Thank you, TK Ranch, for pressing on through the financial difficulties you've had in the past. We are in desperate need of more ranches and vegetable farms like yours.
Looking forward to placing my future order with you in the next month or so!
We had one of your turkeys last year for Thanksgiving, and my mom especially enjoyed it. She said it tasted just like the ones she remembered when she was growing up on her farm. We talked a lot that night about her memories, my grandma and grandpa, and her adventures on her farm. Good food is amazing, isn't it? Thanks for all that you guys do!
I love your newsletter, and I applaud what you guys do. After getting myself educated on what factory farms do and the state of the food industry, I realized I either must become a vegan or if I do eat any animals or by-products, I can only eat them if they ethical and sustainable. Plus, since you are local to me, this eliminates too much reliance on the petroleum industry to get your food to my local store. I tell everyone (who will listen) all about the TK Ranch and your practices.
Thank you so much for what you do - it's so important for the entire planet! I can't imagine it was easy, especially in the beginning, so your products are worth every penny. Bravo!
p.s. Does the ranch take visitors? I would love to see for myself where my food comes from and how it gets from farm to table.
Just want to see I received my first of many orders to come about two weeks ago. I have to say this is the best beef I have ever had. The steaks are delicious and tender, and the roasts are unbeatable.
I will definitely be making another order!
All the best,
We are very excited about TK Ranch products. Never have I enjoyed a smokie more. The recipe for their processed meats is really tasty, and you don't get any nasty aftertaste because they don't use nitrates. We love their convenient packaging. The ground beef may call itself lean, but it's better than any extra lean meat bought from the grocery store. You can tell they don't add water to their meat because it grills beautifully. Delivery is so convenient and their ordering process is easy. We highly recommend TK Ranch!!

I just wanted to say thank you for our TK order! It's been a while since we have had the pleasure of enjoying your products. We are trying to move towards a more plant based diet and have decided to get very strict with the meat that we do eat and (and especially) feed to our children. We knew there was only one place we would trust to ensure that our meat was of the best quality to put in their little growing bodies! I have to be honest, the thought meat has been turning my stomach a bit lately, so i was very surprised when i opened the TK boxes and found that i was actually looking forward to making supper with all of the goodies inside!!
I'm sure you probably hear this all the time, but I just wanted to let you know that we feel so incredibly lucky to have a family run farm like yours in our area. It is people like you that give me hope for the future of our children's food supply. We need more ranches like TK!!
I know that farming is no easy task, especially the way you guys do it! So THANK YOU for doing it! You have no idea how much it means to us!
I made burgers tonight with your beef (accompanied with fries cooked in duck fat: best fat for your heart). Simply put, I had forgotten the taste of great beef. Your beef brought back memories of what meat should or used to taste like. Yes, it is the healthiest but at the end, taste is what matters.
It is awesome. I have such respect for people like you and what they stand for. Being healthy does not mean one gives up taste. Quite the contrary. In addition, the way your beef has been processed/cut is wonderful (NY strip loins are so well cut as are the tenderloins, everything in fact).
In my work (pianist, teacher, performer, recording artist, etc.), many people have theories on how one should do things. Move your fingers this way, sit this way, think this way, etc. The "method" takes over. At the end, all of these theories might have great values but at the end it comes down to one thing: how good you sound. You bring back health into stupendous food.
What you do "sounds" inspired. I am a fan.

My family and I placed our first order with TK Ranch with very little expectations, but we were blown away! The quality of the meat is second to none — even our 3 year old who usually balks at the sight of meat devoured the chicken and even steak! Not only is the meat amazing but so is the Biggs family. Their dedication to quality and to ethically raised animals is inspiring. I recommend TK Ranch to everyone and I can guarantee my family will never eat store bought 'meat' again.
I would just like to congratulate you on your wonderful efforts! I don't eat meat, personally, but my husband does and for years I've struggled with it, until I found your products. I honestly thought all farming and farmers were the same (i.e. nuts to the animal's welfare, its only about the bottom line!, etc.) but I truly believe you are different (I was told to go to farms individually and check them out for myself, but considering I can't even go to the zoo without getting upset, I'm really taking your word for it!). I've shed many a tears frustrated with stories about today's farming industry (force feeding chickens, battery cages, separating calves and cows so early, not letting pigs see the light of day their entire lives, etc.), and I've been duped into "organic" meat and "free range" eggs, and although I agree they are somewhat healthier for the animals, it's not all it's cracked up to be (who can one trust?!). Honestly, I don't believe that humans were meant to be vegetarians, but I just can't fathom giving the farming industry any of my money considering they represent everything against which I stand!
I truly believe that your methods should be LAW. I know this is Canada, and I know this is Alberta, and Animal Rights are far from the top of anyone's priority lists here, but I think we should shake this stigma and become leaders for the rest of the country and, hopefully one day, the rest of the world. I guess what I'm trying to say is that if your initiative is leading or will eventually lead to taking this sort of action, I would truly love to help! Please let me know if there is anything I can do! Until then, I will keep buying your products and spreading the word!
Thank you so much for offering such a wonderful, TRULY HUMANE product to the public!! Congratulations again and best of luck!!
Just wanted to let you know that we tried some of your ribeye steaks last night....in a word "awesome"! Thanks so much! We'll let you know when we are ready for more.
Hello Colleen, We LOVE the chickens. They taste like CHICKENS! A remarkable thing. I don't think I have ever had one [taste like this] before yours.
Dear TK. I'm an active adult that eats "paleo" -- essentially meat, fruit and veggies. So finding a quality source of grass fed beef is super high priority for me and my family. I've been buying your products for the last 6 months or so from community natural foods.
Recently I visited the new Calgary farmer's market in search of a deal on bulk red meat. There was another dealer there but I was disappointed when they told me their animals were grain finished. This prompted me to visit your web site to see what TK's practices were and I am overjoyed to know you use no grain feeding.
This is essentially a long blathering thank you. :) I also learned from your sure that you do direct orders so I'll be doing that very soon.
I just wanted to let you know how wonderfully informative your website was. I found more information on your website about grass fed vs. grass fed [grain finished] beef then I did through 10 Google searches on Alberta beef.
I am also excited to find out this is an ethically raised, no antibiotics or chemicals are used and the beef is grass fed. I am excited to try your product this weekend and wanted to say I will be mentioning your product to people I know.
I will let you know how my experience goes and look forward to sampling more of your products in the future.
