Horse Have Ranch is a working ranch offering a variety of services, including custom farming and livestock services, horse boarding, animal feed and free-range meat production in Whitehorse and surrounding areas of the Yukon.
Ours is a mixed farm: Originally started as a St. Bernard dog breeding operation, today we breed and raise purebred miniature Herefords and wild boars for meat and also sell breeding stock. Other operations include sales of irrigated hay in round and square bales, wrapped oat bales, and small square bales of straw. We have farm machinery and other equipment to rent, we do custom farming on local fields, and we provide short and long term boarding services for horses and cattle. Custom hauling is available, as well.
Organic products, such as meat and livestock feed, must be certified organic by the Government. Organic products must also meet certain requirements, such as omitting the use of antibiotics in the growing process. At Horse Haven Ranch, all of our products are:
We are proud to provide all of our animals to Yukon Born and Raised (YBAR), Yukon’s largest meat distributor! YBAR only purchases the highest quality animals that are 100% born and raised in the Yukon. We are proud to be a partner of YBAR, as other meat producers import the young animals, raise them for the summer and then slaughter them in the fall, but those animals are not born in the Yukon and the animals' parents are not from the Yukon. They do not share the same genetics, and the young animals, even if they are healthy, most likely come from parents that have been treated with antibiotics and such.
Horse Haven Ranch provides meats only from animals of proven genetic quality. We do not use animals that have been treated with steroids, hormones or antibiotics, or offspring of parent animals that have been treated.
No one else in the Yukon offers so many different services in one convenient location. We are also the only place in the Whitehorse area that rents farm equipment all year round.
