From farm to family, this innovator has found a way to deliver a product that meets the needs of Ontario’s growing diversity of cultures. Ewe Dell Family Farms began as a modest 30 ewe farm. The operation has grown to include a flock of 4,000 and includes a modern, government inspected abattoir, which was specifically designed to process sheep. The farm markets its lambs directly to a variety of different ethnic clients in a nearby urban centre. The one-ofa-kind abattoir enables the farm to produce specific carcass weights, specialty lamb cuts and products that meet cultural and religious needs of their various customers. This innovative farm has found a new way to honour old traditions.
