Our Story


The Nolan homestead, Rockyford Farms, is settled in Iron Springs, AB in the valley of the Old Man River just East of Picture Butte.


Ron Nolan Sr., father of Greg Nolan, grows up on a mixed farm in Southern Alberta. Today that farm is owned by Ron’s nephew Larry Nolan who operates a large feed lot and farming operation.


Bar 5 Farms is established in Manitoba to import Simmental cattle from Europe.


The Nolan family moves to Ontario and purchases the “Harkaway” farm in Markdale, ON.


Bar 5 amalgamates all farms to Markdale, ON and expands the Angus and Simmental herds to over 400 cows.


Bar Five Angus becomes a founding member of the Artisan Farms community of farmers and offers their products for sale through its fresh meat distribution centre located at 6400 Shawson Drive in Mississauga to best serve Ontarians


AFD opens a fresh meat distribution centre at 6400 Shawson Drive in Mississauga to better serve Ontarians.
