Locust Hill Farm is a WORKING farm outside of Middleburg VA. We raise and sell grass fed and grain finished beef. We also produce grain and hay.
We sell sweet corn when in season. Throughout the year we have seedstock heifers and bulls available as well as Hay and Straw. We work hard to provide a quality product.

Fall sale season ✔ Done!
We're excited to already be making plans for our spring sale season, which will include consignments to several sales as well as our own online sale in partnership with Black Locust Livestock LLC.
Details coming soon!
It has been a very stressful and busy fall from harvest to calving. We have sold cattle and the boys have showed this past weekend.
Also, special thank you to Dr. Massie and Rose Hill Veterinary in Rappahannock for their care of Queenie (Wills Shorthorn) and her twin calves. :)
Definition of a productive day:
✅Our heifers sold really well at the Virginia Hereford Association Fall Bonanza Sale.
✅We made a really nice investment with a purchase of a powerhouse cow from Montana Ranch...Introducing Montana Rita 6131. Reg # 18553824
Thank you to everyone who helped with the sale and those that helped put the show on as well. The youngest generation rocked showmanship.
The ladies have settled in for the sale tomorrow
Less than 2 days (yep, you read that right) until this heifer sells in the @Virginia Hereford Association Fall Bonanza Sale (along with her penmate whose video is in the comments).
Sound, function, halterbroke, kid and dog exposed, and bred to be the kind of females that will work in different operations...

Harvest and planting winter wheat. We are still rolling while we have the weather.
We are in full harvest and planting mode!!!! Planting winter wheat. Mid-Atlantic Seeds wheat has been our go to for years. Next time you have Chick-fil-A or Domino's Pizza think of us! Our wheat goes to Culpeper County, Virginia to Ardent Mills and they turn it into flour. Thanks to Willard Agri-Service for their help in getting everything just right.

15B is one of our favorites! A 10Y daughter that has been on of our best producers
They say a picture is worth 1000 words...so is 2 worth 2000?
Same heifer, same day, 2 different angles, 2 different perspectives...both "right".
One shows this heifer as super extended fronted and super long bodied. One shows her as super stout and super deep sided for a yearling...and both are accurate.
This Best in Class daughter sells in the Females of the Fall Sale on October 24th. Catalog available at http://www.angusjournal.com/salebooks/femalesoffall102420/mobile/index.html and GE EPDs now available at https://www.angus.org/Animal/EpdPedDtl.aspx?aid=FAAAADbQy2VV56vn8I29PmBnClJ56uzWz8idQv9JcWsJnHtc&time=LAAAAC708qX9gSBLWfDu1CrM%2fANtQ5dLsydIr9fpLIRvxZ%2fhUsNWR1nsJdN9X7OqmmuFCA%3d%3d!
Video coming soon ;)
This old girl is our own bovine version of "grumpy cat"...but we love her anyway!
The land is our greatest asset. We believe in our cover crop program and utilize best management practices whenever possible. Their rye will go on our crop ground and also double a pasture for momma cows during the winter. We want to protect the organic matter of our soil and do our part to keep the bay clean. We are great ful for the incentive Ag BMP programs and encourage folks to utilize them.
Love it when customers send us pictures of our beef. 😁
Pork. It's for breakfast
We wanted to take the time to thank the community for their support. We planted a few acres of sweet corn 🌽 not knowing if folks would even buy it. The community showed us their patronage, patience, and character. We are blessed to be here. We sold our corn using an honor stand, and for the most part the community was incredibly honest and generous. Integrity is what you do when no one is looking. Our community is outstanding. Thank you.
We are also learning and would like to thank the community for its patience. We will be making a few adjustments to how we plant BOTH the sweet corn and the Sunflowers. We will also plant an all white variety of sweet corn along with what we planted this year and some different colored Sunflowers.
If you have any suggestions to help us make the experience better, your feedback is very much appreciated. Please PM us or email Mike at [email protected].
Again thank you to the beautiful community for your patronage.
Star got to work
