QEVA’s story begins with the O’Connor Family and the wild beauty of the Canadian Rockies.
In 1979, the O’Connors began buying properties in the West’s most scenic spots. Before long, they owned three idyllic mountain lodges and a restaurant in Calgary, the birthplace of Rocky Mountain cuisine. By the mid 1990’s, game meats such as venison, caribou, buffalo and elk, were the most popular items on their menus. However, finding reliable supplies of high-quality game meat was a challenge.
To meet this growing demand, the O’Connor family purchased 540 acres of rolling grassland where they would raise their own free-roaming elk and cattle—the Canadian Rocky Mountain Ranch. Today, the 2,500 acre ranch produces the highest quality game meat in the world. They are strongly committed to natural, humane, and sustainable practices, going from field to table with zero waste.
