We’re excited to announce that our first retail location in Calgary, Alberta is now open! Having served our free-range pork products to communities across Alberta for the past fifteen years, we look forward to embarking on this exciting new journey together.
At Spragg’s Meat Shop, we see ourselves as part of the future of agriculture. We raise pork sustainably, using pastoral or free-range livestock production. Ask us about our sustainable production methods to learn more!
One of the questions we get asked all the time is whether our pork products are certified organic. Technically, the answer is no. The term “organic” is governed and regulated by the federal government, and for pork products to be certified they must meet specific standards and undergo an organic certification process.
Today, there is a rising interest in how food is grown and raised. The farm to table movement has been a driving force in the resurfacing appreciation for local, traceable food. Consumers deserve transparency from their local farmers, which is why we’ve created this infographic. We hope you enjoy exploring the journey of our free range, Alberta-raised pork products.
