The O’Neil Farm and O’Neil’s Quality Foods Market –

A.J. O’Neil raises Devon cattle for grass fed beef on a rotational grazing system. A.J. has a watering system and fence layout that allows him to move the cattle as often as twice a day. Most of the animals are raised for the family’s meat market, O’Neil’s Quality Foods. The market also specializes in value added products made from beef, pork, and chicken. Some of the products include flavored bacons, beef hotdogs, flavored patties, and sausage links.
