Helpful answers to questions we often receive at Thatcher Farms.
Why do you vac pac your meat in plastic?
We choose to vac pac our meat as it gives our customers a product that will maintain the high quality of our meat. It freezes beautifully and lets you see the product you are buying (vs. being wrapped in brown paper).
How long can I keep vac packed meat in the fridge?
Your meat seems sort of pricey?
I'd love to buy more of your meat, is there any way I can save money doing this?
Do you sell quarter/half beef? What about 1/2 pigs?
We do! Buying in bulk like this is a great way to save money and stock your freezer with premium cuts from Thatcher Farms. Visit our store online or in person for pricing.
Can I get a cut of meat I can't find anywhere else?
Yes! As we butcher whole animals we are able to do any cut you’d like.
Do you sell live animals?
No we don’t. There are regulations in place that prevent this.
Where can I find your products?
We have an on-farm market open year round Tuesday-Sunday. We are also at the Guelph Farmer’s Market every Saturday from 7-12. In addition you can find our products at many farm markets in Ontario.
How do I cook your ready-made meals?
Whether you bought it fresh or frozen all our ready-made meals are cooked and ready to go – all you have to do is heat it up! We recommend heating in a 350 oven for 15-75 minutes… shorter times for small, fresh meals; longer for larger or frozen meals.
