Penokean Hills Farms

290 Deplonty Rd., Bruce Mines, ON P0R 1C0

Penokean Hills Farms is a local 100% Northern Ontario brand of premium-quality beef from the Algoma district. Their cattle are primarily raised on natural grasses and finished for three to four months on their Premier Award Winning finishing diet (Pea’s and Barley) which helps to promote great tenderness and uniquely local taste. Penokean Hills uses Black and Red Angus and Angus-cross cattle. These animals are free to forge on the natural grasses and plants that are both healthy for the cattle, the consumer and adapted to Northern Ontario conditions. The beef is all-naturally raised, with no use of any added hormones or anti-biotics.

Penokean Hills Farms offers fresh product each week through a number of local business’ and farmers markets. You can also find their beef at many local steakhouses/restaurants in Sault Ste. Marie and Sudbury. Their beef is also on the menu of some of the top restaurants and butcher shops in the GTA and across Ontario. For more information, please visit their website at
