About Us / Six Ridges Farm History: Six Ridges Farm is a family farm owned by Brian and Shannon McGuire. Brian is a 4th generation Kentucky farmer and has been a full-time cow/calf operator since graduating from the University of Kentucky with a B.S. in Animal Science in 1993. Brian has a passion for genetics and has been building his heard for 23 years.
Our Mission is to maintain integrity in animal and land health, and to provide a better product to the local food movement. We want to provide the finest quality we would expect for our family to the local community.
Our farming decisions are made with the thought that we are borrowing the land from our children, and need to ensure it continues to produce for generations to come.
Our cattle are all born and raised on our farm, we do not buy off the commodity market. Our heard has been bred to be more drought and heat tolerant and built to finish on pasture.
The cattle are monitored, those not meeting standards are culled and sold. Cattle are not given antibiotics or steroids. Steers and heifers are raised and finished on premium perennial pastures of bluegrass, orchard grass, red clover, white clover and alfalfa. We also use a mosaic of summer and winter annuals. Legumes provide nitrogen and grasses hold the soils structure.
