Who We Are


Deerview Meats, owned and operated by the Deering Family, began as a family operation in 2006 specializing in processing venison products. Deerview is fortunate to have Perry & Chris at the helm. Perry has a background in cattle ranching, deer farming and meat processing and has used that experience to open SE Alberta’s premier meat processing plant. Pair that with Chris's background in owning small businesses and training small business owners, the couple work together to bring their experiences to the table when planning for next steps at Deerview Meats


Our promise is to provide every one of our customers with the highest quality meat products available combined with unparalleled costumer service. We are proud to have been identified as a gold status meat plant by the province of Alberta, meaning we meet the strictest of meat processing standards.


Quality


  • Our priority is to source our meats from local producers to ensure the highest quality possible. We make a conscious effort to purchase naturally raised beef, lamb, deer and pork to give our customers a fresh and local selection of products. If a customer has specific requests (such as grass fed beef), we can source that meat directly from one of our suppliers. With the exception of beer sausage, all of our valued added meat products are 100% gluten free. We age our meats naturally; we don’t use fillers, preservatives or MSGs. We have an extensive animal/meat tracking system so there’s no mixing of batches as each animal is processed individually and cut to the highest standard by our experienced staff.

People


  • The most important asset we have at Deerview Meats is our staff. We value every single individual on our team and they are all considered part of the Deering Family. As a local business we strive to hire locally whenever possible and each year we bring on a number of summer students, many of whom turn into year-round employees. We provide on the job training for all of our new staff in a variety of positions including Meat Cutter, Meat Packager, Sausage Kitchen and Customer Service/Marketing. As an Employer of Persons with Disabilities, we were recognized with the 2015 Employer of Persons with Disabilities award from the Medicine Hat & District Chamber of Commerce Business Awards

Community


  • We believe in giving back to the community and we (Chris and Perry) volunteer on a number of local boards and committees in the community. We encourage our team to volunteer their time to organizations they are passionate about and support them with donations and time wherever possible. We host an annual charity BBQ and have raised thousands of dollars since 2011 for various organizations like the Canadian Red Cross, Regional 4-H clubs, the Canadian Cancer Society, Cystic Fibrosis, as well as local area schools.
    We also created an entire program with the 4-H Club to help teach our young leaders about Carcass Marketability and how their livestock handling practices directly affect the quality of the end product. We offer tours to teach 4-H members the basics of Carcass Judging, and we have a yearly competition where we award a Grand Champion buckle to the Top Overall Carcass of all 4-H calves.

We are among the top meat processing facilities in Alberta and are committed to providing superior processing services.
