The Elk Ranch
The Elk Ranch is a family owned business that has been in operation since 1999. The farm is run by me, Thom Van Eeghen,
and my wife, Fay Armitage. I have more than a quarter century of experience in the elk industry (in both Canada and New Zealand) and Fay's family has been farming in the Ottawa area for more than 150 years.
You can purchase our products from us directly at the farm or at the Carp Farmers Market. You can also find our meat tastefully prepared at a number of fine restaurants in the Ottawa area.
This site contains information relating to the nutritional benefits of elk meat and health benefits of elk velvet, cooking tips and recipes. If you cannot find the information you are looking for, please do not hesitate to contact us.
The Elk Ranch is located on the western outskirts of Ottawa. To get there, exit Hwy 417 at Eagleson Rd and follow our distinctive elk signs
(see the following map for detailed directions).
From the Elk Ranch Crew, we bid you a great day.
