The property is being offered with or without the registered Angus and Hereford cow-calf cattle operation, Lyons Bridge Beef. The farming business has been in a period of formation and growth over the past six years as new pastureland was opened up to accommodate a maturing herd size. At 328 momma cows, they are just reaching the right balance to turn a profit in the coming year. Another 75-100 cow/calf pair would help reach land capacity.
The farm manager has a degree in Ag Sciences from Berry College in Rome and has been instrumental in developing the solid cattle operation.
The sale of the pasture-raised meat direct-to-consumer has been very popular in the area at a store front in Cave Spring and local farmers markets, including one hosted at Lyons Bridge Farm.
