Black Canyon Ranch

Black Canyon Ranch
Meet the husband-wife team, Rob and Pat Donaldson, ranchers and our friends and trusted partners since 2016 from Black Canyon Ranch in Ashcroft, BC.

• Both Rob’s grandparents were farmers in the Bradner area, and at 23 he took over the family farm which included chicken and cattle.  

• Rob and Pat met when Pat’s family leased some acreage from Rob, a third-generation rancher. The couple has been married for 30 years.  

• Rob is regarded as a pioneer in the organic world. He started raising organic beef in the 1990s at a time when ‘farmers used to certify farmers’ – not the CFIA.

• Ashcroft’s winters aren’t extremely cold so the cattle live outside year-round, with acres of land to roam. 

• Today, Rob and Pat are helped by a team of five at Black Canyon Ranch. 

• Rob and Pat's children, Sara, Pamela, Robert and Bruce, also farm in BC. Pat is proud that their children have taken up farming – what her and Rob love to do. To her it’s a sign that they enjoyed growing up in that environment.

Try their organic beef in our Beef Satay with Spicy Peanut Dipping Sauce - it's perfect for entertaining!
