About True North Meats
“True North refers to what we should do, not what we can do” - unknown.
At True North Meats, we have taken that mantra to heart. Our mission is to produce the highest quality meat in the most environmentally compatible, resource-efficient way possible.
We raise our cattle on local green pastures in the Pacific Northwest and finish our beef and hogs on a locally produced feed designed by an animal nutritionist. Our premium products are then packaged and delivered directly to your door. We strive at every opportunity to reduce our environmental impact as well as implement regenerative agriculture management practices wherever possible.
We take great pride in how we care for our animals, and we believe you will taste the difference.
True North Meats Co. Beginnings
Branden Brink, a Lynden firefighter, and his wife, Heather, began True North Meats Co. in 2022. Branden says that he and Heather “raised cattle to help raise their children.” Their goal is to instill the responsibilities and real world learnings to their children that only a farm can provide.What started as a parenting strategy and family lifestyle, has grown to become a passion for supplying the local community with high quality, conscientiously raised beef and pork.
