More Local Meat!


Draper Valley Farm

Last summer we introduced the Full Circle Burger to our menu – a motto coined from our partnership with local beef supplier, Squaw Creek Cattle Co. in Everson, WA. The cattle at Squaw Creek are grass fed and supplemented with spent grain from our own brewery. To us, it makes a lot of sense to feed out cattle spent brewer’s grain, claim the owners of Squaw Creek, because it’s reusing a product that has already fulfilled one purpose and can, now again, be used as an energy source for our cattle.” Boundary Bay then uses the beef to make our classic brew-pub Burger. It’s simple, it all goes full circle here at Boundary Bay, and this is a motto we like to stick by – local businesses supporting local businesses.  So, in an effort to supply our customers with more fresh and natural products – we’ve decided to partner up with three more (family owned and operated!) meat suppliers: Draper Valley Farms, Anderson Ranch, and Carlton Farms.

Draper Valley Farms is the pioneer of Washington and Oregon-raised fresh chicken since 1935 – their slogan reads; The Way Nature Intended. With no added hormones, GMO’s, antibiotics, or preservatives these chickens are humanly raised with free-range access to the outdoors. Menu items, like the Tarragon Chicken and our Spicy Chicken Wings will now be supplied by Draper Valley Farms.


Beer-B-Q Pork Sandwich

Other menu items like our Meatloaf Sandwich, BBQ Pork Sandwich, and BBQ pork Pizza will now be prepared with high quality meat from Carlton Farms. We believe in one simple principle: deliver only the highest quality handcrafted meats to our customers. No artificial ingredients, no artificial coloring, no chemical preservatives and no added moisture, state the owners. Today’s pork is much leaner than in was 20 years ago because of significant changes made in breeding and feeding. The USDA confirms that pork sold today averages 31% less fat than in 1981! “You’ve heard it be called “the other white meat” but at Carlton farms, we think of pork as THE white meat.” With nine different cuts of pork available, each with less than nine grams of fat – Carlton Farms Pork is versatile, flavorful and healthy, too!

AndersonFamily154The Anderson Family has been raising Oregon Lamb for 5 generations, selectively breading their sheep for the highest quality of meat producers. Increasing in popularly as the choice of red meats, lamb is low in calories, fat and cholesterol and a good source of iron, zinc and vitamin B-12. So it’s no surprise our menu contains a traditional lamb burger! Our lamb will now come from Anderson Ranch in Oregon – U.S.D.A certified naturally grown lamb. The Lambs from Anderson Ranches are grown on free-range Willamette Valley pastures and fed on lush green Oregon grasses. With no added growth stimulants, hormones, feed additives or antibiotics, it’s protein rich, premium natural meat that tastes delicious!

Boundary Bay is excited to introduce these fresh, natural products to our menu. It all began with a burger, and it continues to go full circle. Next time you’re in, give one of these menu items a try and let us know what you think:
