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.

Today we weaned our fall born heifer calves. These calves were born in September and October of 2019. No creep and we were extremely pleased with the size of the calves and condition of the calves. Cows will start calving in six weeks. These cows have done their job. ... See MoreSee Less

I would love to move to this style of weaning management. But I'm not 100% sure our grass and environment are reliably suited to it. Time will tell. Out of interest, what approx. are your cow and calf weaning weights under this management?

Those easy keeping cows can carry there calf’s longer and teach them how to be mama’s in the future, plus the extra gain on the calf’s,with just grass and that little bit of milk. Great Job ! That is the way I like to run my cows.

Ty and grandparents dug up a few keepsakes last night. Two of Bart's favorite knives as a kid. We think Bart won the Purina knife at the KY State Fair as they were big supporters of youth projects back in the 80's. Maybe Mrs. Purina, Maggie Amburgey can come up with some knives like this for prizes for our show kiddos??

The second picture is Bart's first tobacco crop. Needless to say the companies have bred all the profitability out of tobacco production and the genetics to get big plants like this are no longer available to tobacco producers.

Make memories. Memories are priceless!

We are just getting back into raising some alfalfa after not having any for a few years. We are really enjoying this crop. It does bring challenges but has the potential to produce high quality forage. Below is a stand of Cropland Tonnica. We have been pleased with this variety. Andy Shrum Wes Pedigo ...

We are very thankful for the time Ty Jones gets to spend with his grandmother and grandad. Ty and Grandmother (M Susan Jones) canoed down the creek today. And yes they did capsize once but a good time was had. We will cherish this picture. ... See MoreSee Less

I thought I was the daredevil/risk taker in the family. Apparently not.
