Established in 2015, after years of dreaming... it finally came true! With the help of a dear friend and mentor, Leon Stevens, the journey began with the long process of clearing land, sowing seed, installing fence and waiting for the grass to grow. I decided to start with the avian species as a means to ease into "Farm Life" and a short time later I acquired my first Full-Blooded Limousin cattle. In a community dominated by Black Angus, I knew I wanted to be different. Through the efforts to acquire the "non-typical" farm breed, I hope to offer something different while educating others on the great genetics, quality and docility of the Limousin breed.
Coming from a non-farming background, I felt at a very young age that farm life was but a dream. Land, animals and a farm seemed out of reach for many years, however, through Gods grace and my persistence, my lifelong dream has finally come true. Having animals to love and nurture has always been a calling for me. While starting slow with only a few head of cattle, I have been fortunate to learn through my own trials and tribulations what works and what doesn't. This experience coupled with having some great mentors gives me all the confidence I need to continue growing the herd and farm.
Goals and Vision for the Farm
Purchased on February 2015, my 42 acre farm consisted of a 5 acre hay field and 37 acres of trees and briar's. In order to realize our goals, I made the decision to clear the remaining land and fence it for pastures. I have 35 acre's dedicated to pasture for a growing herd and split out into multiple paddocks for rotational grazing. I am always looking for ways to improve the farm and grow it too, mainly as a labor of love.
Strategy & Sustainability
With the purchase of the Full-Blooded Limousin Cattle, I strive to build a herd to a manageable number through selective breeding, to build upon the existing genetics and quality. The long-term strategy is to offer superior Limousin cattle to the surrounding area, while educating the local and non-local farmers on the great potential and advantages of the Full-Blood Limousin breed. I will continue the efforts of only choosing the best genetics in order to grow the farm to it's fullest potential.
