Banks Mountain Farm is located in Western North Carolina near Hendersonville. A winding road brings you up the mountain to our 25 acre farm. We use our team of Percheron draft horses (“Rock” and “Roy”) to work our farm whe
never possible.The barn is Amish constructed using timber from the farm. We strive to breed and produce quality, healthy animals. Our livestock is grazed on a rotational pasture system utilizing Common Sense Fencing.
In 2002 we began breeding Boer goats to provide an additional source of meat for our farm. Since then our breeding program has developed quality stock for meat, breeding and show. Although some of our bloodline names may not be as familiar as those “famous” ones, we believe they are just as valuable genetically. Our breeding reflects quality in health and meat production.
Our first livestock guardian dog joined the farm in 2001. A cross between an Anatolian Shepherd and a Great Pyrenees, “Annie’s” characteristics led us to dig deeper investigating the different purebred livestock guardian dog breeds. After much research and many farm visits we chose the Kangal Dog to guard our flocks. This breed excels in their ability to protect stock and their steady temperament makes them a good choice for any farm. We are very pleased with the characteristics and work ethic of the Kangal Dog.
Visitors interested in our Boer goats or Kangal Dogs are welcome to visit the farm by appointment.
