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.

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.

The ride in the Rogator shows beauty you do not often see from the truck. Everyone please take the time to yield to farm equipment. ... See MoreSee Less

Busy times at Red Hill. Hay production for 2017 is same as complete. It took a little night wrapping but we met our goal of 2000 rolls in 4 weeks. Everything worked very smooth. It hurts to watch all this high dollar equipment sit for the next 11 months but sure nice to have it when we need it. Tobacco transplant is in full swing. All no-till this year. Check out the earthworms the setter is pulling up. We are liking what we see and never can overlook conservation. Have a great week!!

Jack followed the tobacco setter for several rows. He wanted to make sure this no-till tobacco passed his inspection. Bullwhip has written it off but we will keep trying. It looked good this evening. ... See MoreSee Less
