Red Hill Farms

“Where A Bull Is More Than A Bull”

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.

Mom and Dad sent Ty up the road to evaluate a few bulls. We sent him a data sheet and he comes home and throughly describes the bulls. His notes are priceless!! ... See MoreSee Less

Today I walked this hill and snapped a couple pics of sows playing in the woods. I could not help but think of the many hours my grandfather spent on this hill raising pigs. Many visitors from far and near bought hogs from this hill lot. Lots of great memories. This is where the deep animal breeding conversations of my childhood began. My grandfather and dad would talk structure, balance and pedigrees and I ate it up just as Ty does when we study hogs or cattle today. I challenge Gordon F. Jones to name a few of the boars that were grown out on this hill back in the 70's. So much has changed here on Red Hill Road in the last 50 years but this hill has not changed a bit.

Joe GolembiowskiMagic Formula, his sire Goliath, and Mammoth bought by Islers. I too spent a few hours with your granddaddy and your dad study the great red ones on those hills. Very wise, sensible men that knew and know the proper way to make hogs genetically better. I miss those days now, but in a couple years when I retire, I hope to have a few sows and breed some functionable practical hogs that will perform. I get a chuckle out of all the miracle feeds being promoted today for show pig enthusiasts but no one ever mentions feed efficiency, the biggest cost factor in raising hogs( besides spending thousands to buy barrows so their child can win or hopefully at least compete in a market hog show.) Keep the family tradition going by teaching your son the strong basics of raising good healthy , honest hogs. Especially the great red ones. Durocs"The Red Hog with More Meat on Less Feed."

Todd Jennings"So much has changed here on Red Hill Road in the last 50 years but this hill has not changed a bit." This one sentence sums up how I think most multi-generation farms are seen by their owners. Thanks for penning your thoughts today. This made me smile!

We are excited Ty is out of school for the summer. It is refreshing to have such a good farm hand. With the help of Venusti Zacarias and Refugio Ramirez Garcia he managed to catch two of his prize Donkeys this morning and move them to a new set of cows. Next, they weaned 23 fall born bull calves and then TY finished up the afternoon of work bushogging. His tractor driving skills impressed Mom and Dad.
