Hoehn Bend Farm was previously a dairy farm for many years. Under our ownership for the past few years, we raise Dexter Cattle, and Irish heritage breed that is the smallest breed of cattle.
Our farm consists of a large white barn with feeding areas for our cattle and calving pens, a shop for equipment, and other outbuildings that were originally “rest areas” for the dairy cows.
Five acres of our pasture are fenced for the cattle and other livestock. An additional 21 acres grows grass that is mowed, tedded, raked, and then baled as dry hay during the summer.
Nestled in the narrow valley with beautiful hills on both sides, the setting is peaceful and serene… most of the time. In the summer, during hay production, tractors will be running in our fields and throughout the neighborhood (although not early in the morning).
At the second farm, Fender Farm, a brief 15-minute walk down the road, we have two gardens: one for our vegetables; one for pumpkins, squash, and ornamental gourds.
