The Manitoulin Island Meats Story

Manitoulin Island Meats came into being because a small but committed group of farmers here on the Island wanted to make a more direct connection with the people we feed. Not content to simply ship all our live animals south for processing, we got together in 2007 to form a cooperative and to build a government-inspected abattoir for processing Island livestock right here at home. And to be honest, we're not sure any of us would have had the courage to begin this journey if we'd known how hard it would be. Hard, but worth it. Here at Manitoulin Island Meats we're committed to the local food movement and we're committed to feeding as many people as we can locally. That's what keeps us going, and it's the support of individual people like you that makes it all possible. Thank you for partnering with us as we bring great Manitoulin food to tables in our area.
