Welcome to Crossing Creek Cattle
Crossing Creek Cattle is owned and operated by Colin & Tessa Verbeek along with our young daughter Rylin. We both grew up with a passion for agriculture. Colin was raised on his family's purebred Limousin operation, Hillview Farms, near Morinville, Alberta while Tessa grew up on a commercial cow/calf operation near Sundre, Alberta. We both completed the Agricultural Management program majoring in Marketing at Olds College and then settled just west of Morinville, Alberta in 2015 where we have built our farm site from the ground up.
We raise purebred Limousin under Hillview Farms with Colin's parents Raymond and Corine Verbeek and host an annual on-farm bull sale the first Saturday in March. In addition to the purebred operation, we raise a herd of commercial cattle and sell club calves in our fall prospect steer & heifer sale held annually on the last Saturday of September. Please see our CATTLE page for more information.
Both of us spent many years in 4-H and showing cattle and are strong advocates of the 4-H program and youth cattle shows. As a way to give back to youth and pass our knowledge on, we now travel to host cattle clinics for 4-H clubs and at events as well as hosting clinics at our own farm. Please see our CLINICS page for more information.
Thank you for visiting our website, please feel free to contact us for more information about our cattle or clinics, or to make plans to stop by for a visit. We are so grateful for the many wonderful people we have had the opportunity to get to know through our calf sales and clinics - your success is our greatest reward!
