The Jackladder



Just off the Viking Trail, across from Bonne Bay Pond, the Jackladder is not only known for their moose burgers, it is also one of the best places in Newfoundland for traditional Jiggs’ Dinner. This hearty meal served up every Sunday night takes some time to prepare, so once they run out, you’ve missed your chance. Jiggs’ Dinner is the Sunday meal supper in many Newfoundland homes, made with turnip, cabbage, potato, carrot, pease pudding, salt beef and often includes roast turkey. Cured and packaged on the island, salt beef is key to any Jiggs’ Dinner. And since the salt beef needs to be soaked overnight for the dish, this is not a last minute meal to prepare.

About Canadian Beef

Canadian beef is raised with pride and care in each and every province across the country. Chances are, that just outside of city boundaries, your neighbours are depending on beef to make a living. More than 98% of cattle farms and ranches are family-run and most have been operating for generations. There are 60,000 farms and ranches with beef cattle in Canada – that’s a lot of Canadian communities built on beef! 

Raising cattle is one of the few remaining examples of animal husbandry you can see by just taking a drive in the countryside. Beef cattle grazing out in a field bears witness to the fact that Canadian beef is truly a product of the landscape – raised on the goodness that nature provides. Cattle eat locally, largely living off forage (grass) supplemented with grains or other feedstuffs available in each region of the country – potatoes in the East, corn in central Canada and typically barley and wheat out West for example. Beef is very much a product of terroir, with nuanced differences depending on the region where the cattle are raised.
