Back to the Future...

With our long search for the most pure English Devon genetics bearing fruit, we face some tough decisions. We have built a beautiful herd of Devon over the past 10 years but there’s just not room for everyone….who stays, who goes?

The purity of the Devon breed is under assault, not only here but in England. Loving Devon as we do, we decided to devote these years focusing on producing a traditional Devon herd here on our farm. And that means, as our historic English calves mature, our beautiful American Devon will have to yield.

So we invite you to inspect proven dams and sires (and their off-spring) and help us make these difficult choices.

This by no means a dispersal sale…and we’re in no hurry. The transition will take several years. But it starts now.
