Four Whistle Farm operates under the loving care of Marius and Twiggy De Boer in the Millet area south of Edmonton. We immigrated to Canada in the early 1990s and established our small family farm in 1997. We sell our meat directly to you at the Old Strathcona Farmer's Market and through local restaurants.
Our animals have access to fresh air and sunshine on the gently rolling hills of our pastures. They are grain-fed without the use of animal by-products, hormones, antibiotics, or other medications in their feed or water. They are raised at a naturally slow pace to create wholesome and flavourful beef, lamb, pork, and poultry.
Most feed sources are grown on our own farm or by neighbours, and we are always looking for ways to become more local and self-sufficient. All feed is free of soy products. Our livestock is harvested in government-inspected facilities and we maintain a close relationship with the processors to ensure the highest quality products.
Our beef is dry-aged the old-fashioned way and cut fresh just for the Farmer's Market, as with our lamb, pork, and poultry. Turkeys are available fresh at Thanksgiving and Christmas; reservations are recommended.
Special cuts can almost always be provided by request. Please call by Wednesday of the week you would like to pick up to make your request.
At our stall in the Old Strathcona Farmer's Market we have fresh cuts of beef, lamb, pork, and chicken available, as well as seasonal and specialty products such as duck, turkey, and sausage. We also have meat packages available by request. Here are some examples, but we can also provide custom packs at a competitive price.
