Penokean Hills Farms
What’s in the Name
Why Penokean Hills…We
are located in a small
geographical area that
encompasses the areas of
SSM-Blind River&Sudbury called the
“Penokean Hills”
Diversity…
Apple Hill Farm - Will & Elaine Samis (founding member)Retired MNR

Financial and Investment Planning
Spruce Ridge Farm-Ray &Joanne Prestige Chef with the Australian Navy
Indigo Acres- Shawn & Julie Day VP of Day Construction
Tulloch Agri-Services- Mike Tulloch owner of Tulloch Engineering
French River Cattle Company- Andy Stronach
Unique geographical area = unique
challenges…
Climate dictated
Being 400-800 klm from the core of
any given metropolis one can expect
higher transportation costs, as well as
sporadic delivery times
Lower population base to market
product
abattoir facilities are smaller and
usually farther away no Federally
inspected plant.
…but also unique advantages
land is still affordable and pristine
quality forages, fertile soils
being climate dictated, we needed to use cold climate
soil improving crops native to the north
award winning finishing diet of a corn free Pea/Barley
ration using plants that work with our climate.
Our Diversity is what makes us unique but our likeminded passion as
a group is what helps us work well together. It is what keeps our group
focused on improvements for high quality products and protocols that
exceed national standards for:
Ethical and Humane treatment of animals &farm practices
No Growth Hormones or Antibiotics
Animals that are put thru our distribution are born and raised on
member farms
Full Traceability with third party auditing
Corn Free
Looking Forward
Genetic testing using the
right phenotype
expanding market area
our own distribution
