Nesbitt Family logoWhen it comes to beef, you have high standards—and so do your customers. It's why, in 2017, we developed Carve Premium Ontario Beef.

We work with local farmers and processors to provide our customers with great tasting, AAA grade beef that is produced right here at home and supports our local communities.

carve_NBCarve Premium Ontario Beef is raised locally on Ontario farms by passionate families who follow on farm production practices ensuring animal welfare and sustaining the natural environment for future generations.


Meet the Cathcarts: proud fifth generation beef farmers who operate an Ontario cow-calf farm with Charolais cattle.

Like all beef farmers, Allan and Colleen Cathcart's top priority is to raise healthy animals that are safe and well cared for. They raise their animals on well-managed grasslands which support wildlife habitat, biodiversity and carbon sequestration.

The Cathcarts are currently engaged in a number of industry-driven programs developed to uphold consumer confidence in beef. They are enrolled in Canada’s Verified Beef Production Plus program, a national on-farm food safety program, and they are also enrolled in a data sharing program, Beef InfoXchange System, that helps farmers track their animals, even after they have left the farm.

Information like this allows Allan and Colleen to improve the genetics of their herd, to maintain their production of high quality beef for consumers.

The Cathcarts are very involved in their local community. Allan is a member of his local beef association with fellow beef farmers, while Colleen is an active "agvocate" with consumers. She is passionate about sharing her perspective of life on a beef farm.
