We are Randy Whitteker and Michele Vindum.  Plainfield Heritage Farm reflects our lifelong passion and commitment to wholesome, natural foods produced within ecological, sustainable practices that foster animal well-being while naturally replenishing the soil, flora and fauna. We live and farm through a "trust in nature." We produce grass fed beef, lamb, and goose meat from rare/heritage breeds and have breeding stock available. We are a biosecure farm which we run without use of sprays.

Our beautiful 1843 farmstead is located just off the Moira River at Shannon Road and Scuttlehole in the historic town of Plainfield, only 15 minutes north of Belleville. Look for the stone buildings and antique street lights just up the hill from the corner

Galloway Cattle

Our registered heritage Galloway cattle range year-round on our pastures bordered by beautiful, old fashioned hedgerows. Our no-spray, 100 per cent pasture-fed beef is free from hormones, antibiotics, meat-based proteins or any other additives.

Grass fed beef

We carefully chose Galloways as they thrives on 100 % pasture producing a very flavourful meat that is lean with healthy omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. Galloways bring exceptional favour with good marbling of polyunsaturated fats (the good kind.)

We raise heritage breeds because we are committed to food security. Many people are unaware that large scale farming has lead to significant loss of livestock breeds, reduced genetics within breeds and even difficulties in breeding naturally.

Our gentle Galloways may be hoary, old fashioned beasts but, they have never lost their ability to thrive on their natural diet of grasses and herbs and are well suited to withstanding climate extremes. Breeding Galloways reflects our commitment towards food security, resilience and food capacity right here at home.

Breeding stock

If you interested in breeding high-quality registered Canadian Galloway Cattle we have registered bulls for sale, many sired from top imported Australian and Scottish semen. We are a biosecure, closed herd working towards disease-free status (where possible). This is your assurance we invest in the health of our livestock. Our cattle are 100 % grass fed, free range on pasture and maintained under organic principles. They receive only the finest organic supplements and are otherwise untreated except for initial 2 mm of selenium at birth. Our cattle are handled several times a day so are exceptionally calm and gentle. They make excellent mothers. They are naturally polled, with a double hair coat making them more adaptable to changing climate extremes. When used as a cross, Galloways bring exceptional hybrid vigor as this bred is one of the oldest breeds and never crossed with outside lines.
