Here at LJ Ranch, we are family-owned and operated, located in the Foothills of the Rockies, west of Calgary, Alberta. Our goal is to provide natural & locally raised Alberta Beef by direct sales to our customers. We have been raising our quality beef near Cochrane, Alberta, a community we have been proud to call our home, for nearly 50 years!
Joy and Lindsay Eklund are grateful to live and work full-time here, with help from their six grown ”kids“, and twelve grandkids.
When it comes time to gather and move the herd, help with working days on the ranch, fencing, harvesting, and a host of other chores, our nearby family and friends are always glad to lend a hand.
The cattle we sell to you are raised from birth by us on our ranch, so we know each animal’s history, and can guarantee the quality and purity of our young, Angus Cross cattle.
In addition to being a working cattleman, Lindsay has applied his expert skills in horsemanship and has provided riding lessons, Sensitive Touch Horse Training, custom saddle fitting, and guiding Working Ranch Adventure Rides to folks of all ages and skill levels.
Joy is a Registered Midwife (retired) having founded Cochrane Community Midwives having practiced for many years. Joy is a rancher’s wife, proud Mom, and devoted Grandmother. She feels very fortunate to have been able to provide services to women and their families from her clinic right here at the ranch.
