We are a family owned and operated cow/calf production operation located in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley in Northern Virginia. We run a small herd of Maine-Anjou, Shorthorn, Angus, and Simmental influenced cattle for the production of show calves for today's youth 4-H/FFA projects. Our goal is to produce good quality cattle that will perform not only in the show ring but also in your cattle operation to produce those high quality, sound, easy feeding cattle that are desired in the beef cattle industry today.

We also provide custom farming services. We provide no till drilling, hay making, and bushhogging services. Allison clips, fits, and halter brakes cattle. If you are needing someone to provide any of these services please contact either Rick or Allison.
