Airdrie, AB, Canada
The Bell L Brand has proudly labeled our livestock since 1909. Steeped in tradition and synonymous with the highest quality livestock world wide. Today the third, fourth, fifth and sixth generations are involved producing the highest quality beef.
Our core value driver is to manage our cattle with the very best animal husbandry. We believe that "the better you treat your animal's the better they treat you!"
Animal health: We believe that being proactive when it comes to herd health is fundamental. Quiet, docile, and happy stock is the cornerstone in herd health. We believe that healthy is natural and that is why we have chosen not to use growth hormones or steroids. Our cows are pastured on grass every day of the year. With the help of our horses, we move our cattle slowly in order to eliminate stress. Our goal is to reduce our carbon foot print by feeding and bedding our cattle with teams of horses as well as feeding our young stock by hand.
Environmental Practices: We are natural, we believe if one is good to ones land and rest it on occasion, the land will take care of itself. The pasture creates its own organic matter which enhances the soil. We can proudly say that we are the custodians of our land.
Our Product: Our cattle are calved and raised on our ranch just north of Airdrie, Alberta. We take every precaution to ensure the cattle are not stressed, this in return provides our customers a superior product. We are proud to be able to share with you the same high quality beef that we have always enjoyed. We carry Bowden Chicken, Bear and Flower Pork, Damit Amit Grab & Go meals, Two Pine Farms honey, Traeger products and many other local products.
Our growth indicated we needed to expand our little meat shop on our ranch just NW of Airdrie which we opened April 2017. COVID-19 hit in March and we where in a whirlwind between the sudden increase of customers/orders at the ranch meat shop and the construction of the new butcher shop in Didsbury. Finally we were able to open our doors in the end of June, 2020.
We joined the Didsbury Chamber of Commerence as we have found that being a Chamber of Commerence is made up of local businesses, professionals, and people working together as a team to build a strong, business community, sharing ideas, struggles and successes.
Come in and try some of our beef products, it’s raised differently then any commodity beef. We have new packages available along with quarters and halves.
