Thoroughbred Farm Services
We provide year-round and seasonal boarding services.
Our facilities include 2 barns and 5 large, spacious light-filled run-in sheds on large carefully maintained pastures which are soil tested annually and fertilized for optimum nutrition for gestating mares and growing young horses.
The physical setting and the attention to detail of the barn and the farm provide a facility for the safe management of each and every horse.
Gourmet Grass-Fed Beef
We now have handsome and healthy Angus cattle on the farm.
Our focus is on how they are raised not just on what they eat. This energy based model consists of a forage diet, rotating pastures, fresh deep-well water, and hay in winter. Naturally, no antibiotics or hormones.
We follow the idea that this pastoral and sustainable agricultural model will help restore the natural ecosystems and wildlife habitat while providing a solid environment for them to flourish. We are committed to the thinking that “what’s better for the animal is better for us”
Research shows that grass fed beef is lean,contains a high percentage of good fats -Omega 3s and beneficial vitamins and minerals and most importantly…..our meat is delicious . Please contact us for more information.
