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.

These are fall calving pairs. We have not weaned our fall calving mature cows. We are making the cows work for us and the calf size and condition of the cows is quite impressive. This first pair pictured is a very yellow cow, 104X. She is one of our favorites for efficiency on grass. These were just a few quick snapshots during a storm yesterday. It makes life fun riding thru a pasture like this one. ... See MoreSee Less

We made a quick trip to northern Ohio yesterday to visit two Red Hill Customers. Jeff McCullough started his Red Angus herd with three bred females a year ago and Dan Frobose started his Red Angus herd with three females two years ago. We are so pleased with how our genetics are working in Ohio. Certainly, these two stockman give these cattle the very best of care. Excited to see what the future holds for them. ...

Rough night here on Friday night. Thankfully nobody injured. Lots of trees down and several buildings damaged. It's that 8 mile long downburst that is described here by the National Weather service that moved from southern Allen County into Northern Macon County that crossed some of our farms. The barns and buildings can be rebuilt but it is sad to see the number of 100+ year old oak trees blown down. Those are not replaceable in our lifetimes. Many of these have huge root balls attached to them. One is in the second picture and there are many like this in this path.Our damage survey today also found a brief EF-1 tornado and a massive area of straight-line winds up to 85 mph struck northern Macon County this past Friday, June 21, 2019. The tornado touched down near Green Valley Road and moved eastward across Oak Knob Road and Underwood Road before lifting, blowing down hundreds of trees and damaging many barns and homes along it's 1.7 mile long by 150 yards wide path. Surrounding the tornado, an unusually large 8 mile long by 1.5 mile wide downburst with winds up to 85 mph hit the area generally from Highway 10 at the Kentucky border southeastward to along Highway 261, including the Green Valley, White Oak, Underwood, and Galen communities. This area of straight-line winds caused similar damage to the tornado, blowing down tons of trees and power lines and damaging or destroying numerous barns. ... See MoreSee Less
