Huckleberry Dairy and Beef Farm is a Century Farm. The owners are brothers who are the fifth generation on the farm and the third to have a Grade A dairy farm. Being a family-owned operation, it was named Huckleberry Beef and became a partnering enterprise in the mid 1970’s and continued to grow.
With farming being part of the family for over 100 years the Sowers family have built a well-known family operation, recognized as one of Virginia’s Century Farms, included in the spotlight segment of the 2013 Select Sire Beef Directory and also named the 2009 Virginia Dairymen of the year. Even though the family farm has raised other livestock and crops over the years, their ongoing focus is on their cattle–both beef and dairy.
Huckleberry Beef is currently run by the Sowers Family, Mark and Curtis, who have worked on the farm since they were little. Along with their wives and children, all help out on the farm part-time. Our farm consists of 650 acres of owned property and about 650 acres of rented property, with about half of the total acreage used for cattle and forage production. The rest is in timber. Crops grown on the farm include 225 acres in corn, 150 acres in alfalfa, and about 350 acres is used for hay and pastureland.
