Fair Killing in Kitchener

Firefightra | Jan 29, 2011 08:10 AM

Does anyone know of farms or companies in the Kitchener area that raise, transport, and slaughter their animals humanely? Truthfully, I am looking for a family farm or something to that extent since I am located near St. Jacobs and all those farms! Anybody out there that has a good, fair, and humane farmer/butcher that they can recommend?
And now the rant (I put it after my question so you don't really have to read on if you don't want to)! I have have read a bunch of posts regarding the fair treatment of our meat when it comes to raising them; however, I can't find anything regarding the humane treatment of our animals/meat when we transport them and slaughter them. I am really appalled at the butchering processes that a lot of companies subscribe to (ie: slaughtered infront of eachother, crammed in trucks during transport, etc.). I know that there are a bunch of companies out there that raise their meat humanely without the use of antibiotics and growth hormones; but, can't really find any places that tell about their transport and slaughter process (with the exception of The Healthy Butcher; but, they are crazy pricy and am trying to find something a little less expensive). Any suggestions?
