Dan's bio

Dan O'Brien is a fourth generation beef producer who grew up on a farm near Greely. He believes that supporting family farms clearly benefits both the farmers and the consumers.

"We are confident that the beef we are producing is of the highest possible quality," declares Dan. "If it isn't good enough for my family, I won't sell it." The cattle are born and raised locally and the brand new facilities are designed to maximize their comfort and care.

O'Brien Farms participates in the Ontario Cattlemen's 'Quality Starts Here' Program and operates within Ministry of Environment guidelines. Dan welcomes the growing interest in initiatives such as the 100-mile diet and looks to greater connections between consumers and farmers.


  • The beef is from cattle born and raised in the Ottawa area. They are never fed antibiotics* and never receive growth stimulants.
  • Cattle have received routine health vaccinations to help with the prevention of bovine illnesses.
  • Purchasing locally produced beef helps to support our local families.

*Although it is not a frequent occurrence, If any of the animals become ill, they are examined by our Veterinarian and if an antibiotic is required it is administered accordingly.
