Red Hill Farms provides leading Red Angus & Simmental genetics plus herd management support services to improve your profitability

Bart, Sarah, & Ty Jones operate Red Hill Farms, a 7th generation family farm on the rolling hills of northern middle Tennessee and south central Kentucky. With the original farm purchased by Bart’s great-great-great-grandmother in the late 1860’s, the family has tilled the land with pride and raised quality livestock for several generations.

Red Hill Farms is a family farm that consists of 450 Red Angus, Simmental, SimAngus, and Angus cows, 150 acres of burley tobacco, 100 purebred sows, and row crops that support the livestock enterprises. The cattle operation utilizes artificial insemination, embryo transfer, extensive performance records and DNA analysis to produce bulls and females for the annual sale held the third Saturday in March. The Jones’ swine operation provides breeding stock to customers across the United States and in foreign countries. Burley tobacco is a traditional Kentucky/Tennessee crop that adds diversity to Red Hill Farms. The Jones family enjoys sharing the tobacco experience with visitors unfamiliar with this specialty crop.

Both Sarah and Bart are deeply-rooted in agriculture. Sarah was reared on a 4th generation dairy farm and was active in 4-H and FFA activities. She graduated from Western Kentucky University with a degree in accounting and is a Certified Public Accountant. Sarah manages financial records, cattle records, advertising, and marketing in addition to rolling the hay and AI breeding the cows. Bart grew up in the purebred swine seedstock industry, and he was an active 4-H swine project participant. When he graduated from Oklahoma State University in 1996, Bart came back to the family farm to raise pigs. He quickly learned that diversification would make the farm more profitable. Today, the farm produces cattle, tobacco, hogs, corn, soybeans, and a variety of hay and silage crops. Bart manages the day-to-day farming operation and computerized swine records.

Red Hill Farms’ mission is to be good stewards of the land, promote excellent husbandry practices and treat animals with respect, give back to the community, and provide superior genetic products to increase customer profitability and enhance consumer appeal of U.S. beef and pork.

Bart, Sarah and Ty appreciate farm life and cherish the friendships developed in agriculture. They also take time to enjoy house boating, waterskiing and exhibiting Ty’s market lambs.

We run our corn production like we do our cows---the best genetics, high fertility and limited overhead. It works great but it caught up with us today as our limited overhead decided not to work. Got planter back to going about dark so guess we can plant all Night!! Sweet dreams.... ... See MoreSee Less

Sarah Eubank JonesI have no idea what kind it is. I think it is about a 5 foot long chicken snake. I really didn't care. It was a snake...

Congratulations to Wood Red Angus (Mike and Kathryn Larrimore Wood) and Ryan Ludvigson on the April Herdbuilder Sale today. 4 of the top selling bulls were sired by RedHill Ten X 104U 190A. Red Hill is proud to be a partner with Wood Red Angus on 190A. Below is a picture of Lot 1 (190A son) that sold for $70,000! 3 other half brothers sold for $50K+ each! It is humbling to see Red Hill genetics sold to many progressive breeders. ... See MoreSee Less

We completed cutting all our rye yesterday except for this 5 acre variety trial that was seeded very late. In this picture you can see the check drill row that is much smaller. We have 5 varieties planted and will let it stand another week. If you would like to see it come on by and we can show you. We were disappointed in some seed we purchased last year so we decided to just try em out this time. ... See MoreSee Less
