Our Beginnings at Spring-Rock Farm

We begin this story with 20 wagyu embryos in 2008, in the hills of Vermont overlooking the Connecticut River and New Hampshire and beyond, the farm is a very special place. We think of it as a member of our family, a unique part of our story.

Our Vision

Our vision at Spring-Rock Farm is to create superior Wagyu genetics and breed stock, and to work with other farmers, breeders, the culinary world, and the community at large to build a strong and vibrant U.S. Wagyu herd. We go about our business with deep respect for the roots we have in the community by utilizing local talents and resources. With that in mind, our Spring-Rock Farm family ties together a dynamic combination of expertise in genetic science, top quality animal care, embryo transfer technology, and marketing savvy.
