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.

An honorable man was awarded the most prestigious award in animal agriculture on Sunday evening. Everett Forkner was honored as the 2020 inductee into the Saddle and Sirloin Portrait Gallery. Everett has been a visionary in animal agriculture, especially the pork industry, and we are proud to call him a family friend!

In Everett's acceptance speech he challenged those of us in animal agriculture and the youth who are the future of our industry with 3 quite admirable challenges...
1) "You get what you plan for and if you fail to plan, you plan to fail." Written goals are important in life.
2) "You will never be wrong doing the right thing. Honesty and Integrity will define who you are, what you believe in, and who you will become. Change is constant, but values are eternal."
3) "Success follows your work ethic and dependability. If you are the first to arrive and the last to leave in your work ethic, you will one day manage the business, own the business, or start and run your own business. It's all about work ethic, work ethic, work ethic..."

Thank you to Walton Webcasting for streaming the celebration for those of us unable to attend!

Congratulations, Everett!
