ABOUT COUNTY LINE FARM
We are a small, family owned and operated farm located on the Louisa/Fluvanna county line in beautiful Kents Store, Virginia. We first started our farm in 2009 as a way to be more self sufficient and to provide cleaner, healthier food for ourselves, our friends, and our family. As our friends & family began sharing our products with others, the demand snowballed and we have been slowly but surely working towards meeting the ever-growing demand for our locally grown, delicious products.
In 2017 we added a few Murray Grey cattle back to our breeding program after dispersing our Nationally competitive herd of Murray Greys in 2007. Lucy, pictured here, is a granddaughter of our original foundation cow, RSA Ms. Lotus Lady--Dam to the 2006 Grand Champion & National Show Supreme Champion bull, JVN Vernon.
It is such an honor to be given the chance to get those genetics back to Fluvanna County after all these years. Our beef herd will remain small, as we are primarily a Grass-Fed operation and will only keep what our land can sustain through rotational grazing practices.
We hope to have pasture raised beef available in Fall 2021.
We originally started our farm as an ADGA Registered herd of LaManchas & Nigerian Dwarfs, participating in ADGA performance programs including DHIR milk testing & Linear Appraisal. In 2019, after 8 years of breeding & raising dairy goats, we dispersed our dairy goat herd and added a few Boer meat goats, and Boer x Nubian crosses to start our commercial meat goat herd. This year we added a black dappled Boer x Kiko buck, a Savanna buck, and a few more Boer does from well known herds around Virginia & West Virginia to help us grow our herd.
Valerie maintains her DHIR dairy tester certification through Dairy One and continues to provide dairy testing services to local herds and dairies who are currently enrolled in DHIA testing.
