Spring-Rock Farm

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

The farm incorporates 350 acres in total and is located perfectly for this project. It’s small, just five and ten acre hillside pastures with natural features that protect our Wagyu from harsh wind and snowdrifts.

Here we raise our Wagyu naturally; no added hormones or steroids for growth enhancement and no unnecessary antibiotic usage. Our steers are primarily grass fed throughout with a grain finished, GMO-free diet.

We’re blessed to be living and working in such an idyllic setting. Spring-Rock Farm offers not just a stunning panorama of the river and mountains, but also penetrating views into our past that inspire us to write a new and promising chapter for our future.

In 1790, Spring-Rock Farm was built on historic Parker Hill, overlapping Springfield and Rockingham, Vermont.

Today, Parker Hill District is a National Historic Site, consisting of 25 buildings built in the late 1700’s and early 1800’s that supported this farming community.
