PEI Beef

A great article about PEI Beef and the Atlantic Beef Plant :


"PEI beef is the top percentage of Canada’s highest grade of beef. It is (of course) potato fed, antibiotic free, absolutely no animal by-products and it is hormone free.

We visited the Atlantic Beef Products plant – whose beef is produced solely by family run and operated farms"
