WELCOME TO ALPENBLICK FARM
We Produce 100% Grass-Fed Beef, Goat and Lamb in the Ottawa Region
IMPROVING PEOPLES' HEALTH AND THE ENVIRONMENT SINCE 1972.
Alpenblick Farm just might be the closest thing to going to Switzerland that you will ever experience.
Surrounded by classic Swiss paraphernalia – from cuckoo clocks to beautiful oversized cowbells, Alpenblick which means ‘mountain view’ in German, conjures up visions of snow covered alps, animals grazing in alpine meadows, green valleys, chalet-dotted hillsides, and the bucolic sounds of cow bells.
Here, near Ashton, half an hour from downtown Ottawa, Robert and Petra have created something of an “homage” to his place of birth.

On our beautiful 200-acre farm, all the animals are free to roam wherever they want, whenever they want. This stress free environment makes our animals very healthy and also very friendly, including our bulls Boris and Dasher, our Miniature Horse Elvis, our Great Pyrenees Dog named Zena; our beautiful Jersey cow Peggy, and many more pets. Our animals never receive grains, only their natural diet of fresh green grass. No soy, no corn, no GMOs. Only the best for our animals!
Here at Alpenblick Farm, we've got some of the happiest and most loyal customers you'll find anywhere. That's because we produce the healthiest food possible with love and care for our animals. Below are some of the testimonials we have received.
"I have to tell you–your goat meat is the best we have ever tasted. It was superb. The taste is delicious, the meat is tender–oh yes–we will be back for more. And for weight loss not much can pass it’s nutrition, calorie count/oz, saturated fat etc. And we are amazed at the cheese and Kefir. Couldn’t be better. Thank you so much."
- Janice Newman
"Robert’s Parmesan is phenomenal. I have a vitamin blender and it powdered the cheese in seconds. And his quark could outsell his kefir. I would buy some every week, could you please set some aside for me when Robert makes more.
— Kim H
"Alpenblick Farm’s meat is so delicious and fresh that it’s impossible for us to buy meat from the grocery store. Now that we have gotten used to the high-quality meat sold by Robert and Petra, we cannot get over the “smell” of grocery store meat. We regularly buy beef, lamb and goat meat from Alpenblick farm. The taste is out of this world and we can make amazing stews, casseroles and curries with the meat. The prices are very reasonable, especially given that the meat is grass-fed and organic. It is also an absolute pleasure to visit the store at the farm because of the farm’s peaceful and picturesque settings. Thank you Robert and Petra for everything you do to make healthy food available to the community."
— Fatima and Jacob
"Petra and Robert I can’t believe I finally get to eat cheese! I have been intolerant to many foods for a long time, but I can eat YOUR cheese and milk! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I feel it is full of probiotics by being so fresh and without the packaging covered in preservatives it keeps me safe. I have been able to take your milk and make healthy homemade yogurt in order to bring more probiotics into my gut and repair the damage. When I went down south I took some cheese with me and used it as medicine for my stomach and it worked.
I can’t thank you enough for teaching me what it means to have healthy animal products to eat and for working so hard to provide them for us all.
With much appreciation."
— Bert Farrell
"I want to thank you so much for what you do. I know that you work so hard to provide your customers with such high quality meat, and I want you to know that it is appreciated. I wish you could have seen Juliana last night at the supper table. We were eating flank steak from your farm and she couldn’t get enough. She demanded more over and over and was just so happy eating it. It brought tears to my eyes to see her enjoying food so much.
My friend who has a son with severe food intolerances was also successful in getting her son to drink broth made from the lamb shanks that I picked up last time I was there. It is the first food he has ever been able to tolerate and she is so grateful as well for what you are both doing."
"I wanted to write to you both and say thank you so much for sharing your farm with us. Barbara told us she was coming and that we could join her, we had no idea how fantastic your farm is and how open and wonderful you both are. Thank you very much, it was a very meaningful experience for us."
— Bradlee Zrudlo
"Thanks so much for having us on Saturday, we all had a fantastic time in your farm and the kids really really enjoyed it. We hope we didn’t stayed too long! We were having such a great time with you and the animals. After visiting the farm we all felt wonderful, I don’t know if it was the energy in your farm, the animals, or the milk but we all felt relaxed, happier… just better! Hopefully we can visit you sometime this summer.
Petra, on Sunday we made some eggs for breakfast and I have to say that they were DELICIOUS!! We can’t wait to try the meat that we bought from you."
— Paola Mateus
"Your lamb is the best I’ve ever had. Happy lambs make beautiful meat!"
"The meat from your farm is absolutely superior. I will certainly return, and I hope to bring a friend or two with me. It is very important to me that you are humane with your animals. My mother’s family were dairy farmers, and it was just normal to treat the cows humanely back then, before the second world war. How things have changed."
"My family and I came out to your farm several weeks ago to buy some beef. It was delicious! We really enjoyed all of the meat we bought."
"Just writing to say thank you for the delicious meat we’ve got several weeks ago! It was really great, compared to everything that we tried before."
— Vasily Ponomarev
