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.
"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. Thank you Robert and Petra for everything you do to make healthy food available to the community."
— Fatima and Jacob
"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."
"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
"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! Thank you, thank you, thank you."
— 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."
"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."
— Paola Mateus
"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
"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
