McIntosh Farms

Our Story

We (Shawn and Erin McIntosh) own and operate McIntosh Farms just outside of Atwood, On. We along with our four children raise %100 grass fed beef and lamb as well as pasture raised pork, chicken and duck. We are grass farmers working with animals and nature to regenerate the soil and bring you the most nutritious meat possible. Our animals are raised in the most humane way possible so you can feel good about what you are feeding yourself and your family. You can find our meats at the Stratford Farmer's market each Saturday at the Rotary complex.  You can also purchase or buy it  prepared for you at the most discriminating restaurants and stores. And at our butcher shop 167 Argyle Ave.  Listowel, ON.

Our Farm

Our farm is where we grow what we eat. We are grass farmers, so our goal is to grow as much grass as possible. With the help of our birds and animals we are able to grow more and more grass each year (on the same amount of land).  We use "mob grazing" and daily rotational grazing as our methods. We also happen to be animals lovers. Yes, that's right we love and care for these animals and then we eat them. This may surprise you but it's just that simple. We want to feel good about how we raise these animals and what we are eating. We want to provide you with only the most humanely raised meat and eggs. 

what customers say about us


We love our freezer stocked with McIntosh Farms pork. We didn't have to worry about the quality or the source of the product as you do some times when buying from the grocery store. I was very satisfied with knowing the family and the farm as well as the standards the McIntosh family hold themselves to. I would order again and again!

Compliments to Shawn and Erin. I don't eat red meat very often (maybe 6x per year) your steak has me sneaking pieces off my sons plate! Simply AMAZING!

Thank you

Our Naturopath doctor recommended McIntosh Farms as a good source for quality grass-fed beef and meats.  We ordered ground beef, lamb, steaks, and roasts, which were cheerfully delivered to our door (as we are luckily on route to the Slow Food Market in Stratford!!!)

The meat is top-notch, the prices reasonable and the service wonderful!  I can’t wait for spring to go visit the farm in person and see wonderful sustainable farming in action!
