On a beautiful spring day in the 1940’s, Chris’ great grandfather Harry opened for business in the current Coneybeare’s Minden location. Back then Harry and later Bill, Chris’ grandfather, would take the family pickup to the Haliburton Train Station in Gelert to get the cattle right off the train.
Together, they would take each animal to the local Abattoir and then carefully transport the meat products to the store.
In 1981, Chris joined the family business with his father Alan, and his grandfather Bill.
Lily and Mckay Coneybeare are the newest generation to carry-on the family tradition of fine meats, quality products and excellent Customer service.
Under the close eye and guidance of Chris, Lily and Mckay are earning their rightful place in a long line of traditional Butchers. “Lily and Mckay cherish and understand the family values”, according to Chris. “When ready, they will continue the Coneybeare tradition of quality meats and excellent service. I am confident that Lily and Mckay will also transition the business to serve the ever-changing needs of our Customers throughout the Haliburton Highlands”
