Rustic Man Farm
A Vermont family farm on the hills above the Connecticut River Valley
We have been selling horses and ponies since 1984:
Our horses excel in many areas. We have pleasure horses, 4-H and pony club appropriate mounts, trail horses, show prospects, young prospects, entry level ponies and beginner friendly horses. Many of our horses come from the west and have a good neck rein but make wonderful crossovers to English riding. We hand pick and evaluate our horses as if we were gathering them for ourselves. All of our horses are ridden and handled by women and children.
We also have leasing programs for New England camps and stables:
Many of our horses spend the summer at area camps enjoying 7 - 8 weeks with children. Working hard with each camp, we match up horses especially suited to their program. Indeed many horses end up on the "want back pleeze" list at the end of the camp season. We hope that campers have fun, learn to share our love of horses and gain respect for these amazing animals. Then pass this respect and admiration forward.
Whether serving a family or camp, we work hard to match our horses with riders’ abilities, needs and goals, believing your horse should be a lifetime friend!
We are always exploring new possibilities as family members develop new interests and skills:
I have an on line store with horse themed gifts. Great gifts that support American Companies and artists. You will love the horse themed products for your home, garden and parties. There are also gifts for children. Officially called the
Equine Gift Boutique. The link below will take you to the Miva secure shopping cart.
My son, Will, has a growing maple syrup business here at the old sugar bush. From early March to mid April, he is busy tapping the maples and boiling down the sap into that delightful Vermont treat we know as maple syrup. He recently has started a natural beef project. Currently he has registered Angus. In spring of 2011, we eagerly await the delivery of a Registered Belgium Blue Heifer and Registered Bull from Missouri. These will be the foundation of his herd; crossing well on Angus to produce larger leaner, all natural animals. Look for more updates on Double Bow Belgian Blues.
The new logo was designed during my recent class in illustrator at Lebanon College. My sense of humor took control as I designed this "tongue in cheek" image. Considering that Rustic MAN farm was conceived and managed by a WOMAN, this seemed like logo you all would remember.
