Coosawattee Farm is a 100 acre farm located on the lower end of the Coosawattee River. The Coosawattee’s head waters begin in Gilmer County and travel through the North Georgia mountains south to create Carter’s Lake and then proceeds west across the edge of Murray County in to the northeast section of Gordon County.
We are Beef Quality Assurance Certified. We have available in late spring a small offering of commercial Angus replacement heifers.
Tony and I love our life and our lifestyle. There's always something going on but you still have time to relax and enjoy a hike with the dogs through the woods and up the river bank. My son, Jeremy and his wife Brooke, my daughter Sarah and her husband Josh provide support to the farm operation as their work schedules and family time allow. Tony's son, Cale, lives in Kansas and graduated from law school in 2017. He is engaged to his college sweetheart Lauren and will be married in April 2020. We have two energetic Grandsons (soon to be three) and three beautiful Granddaughters that will have plenty to do when they get a little older. Cale's fiance has a son, and we look forward to having him here and experience everything about our farm life.
My father has managed the farm since the early 60’s. He and my mom are now enjoying retirement and he supervises only a few special projects of his choosing.
The poultry part of the farm business closed down after the blizzard of 1993 and the poultry house is now used for horse stalls and hay storage. We now purchase the majority of our hay supply so that we can run more cattle per acre.
We have two registered quarter horses. A 19 year old red dun Peppy San mare and a 19 year old sorrel Laker Doc mare. They are a very big part of our family.
Both the horses and our stockdogs are used around the farm.
Hope you're enjoying your time getting to know our family. If you're ever in Northwest Georgia drop in... we'd love to show you around. But don’t be surprised if we put you to work doing something I'm sure you will enjoy.
