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.

Our 5th Annual fall cattle sale last weekend was a huge success! We want to thank the bidders and buyers for believing in our program. We enjoy sale weekend because it is a time to visit with old friends and make new friends.

Our Friday night "Cattle Talk" was exceptional this year with several speakers sharing about adding value to the cattle they are marketing. There was a lot of thought-provoking discussion. When we gather great cattlemen and women in one room that are willing to share, we can all broaden our knowledge.

We were very blessed that sale day on Saturday was not a complete wash out. We were thankful for the rain and that the heavy downpour waited until after the conclusion of the sale.

Cattle sold into 9 states and Ontario, Canada.

30 Red Angus Bulls - $3,767
19 SimAngus Bulls - $3,000
26 Red Angus and SimAngus Bred Heifers - $1,961
17 Red Angus and SimAngus Open Heifers - $2,050
20 Red Commercial Bred Heifers - $1,744
18 Bred Cows (Red Angus and SimAngus) - $1,816
