Dragonfly Farms is located in beautiful Hanover County, Virginia on 54 acres of established pasture and hay fields and 150 acres of rented pasture. Bruce and Katherine are continuing with the farms history of beef and hay production, along with specialty horse care, and greenhouse growing. Our beef cows are Belted Galloways, which are a heritage breed and are known for producing excellent beef on a grassfed diet. Their long hair coats allow them to be a naturally lean beef which means that they can be successfully raised on pasture. Grassfed beef is higher in healthy Omega-3s and is naturally low in fat. We are also working with Red Angus cattle and trying a cross breeding program for grass finished beef. With the greenhouse on the farm, Bruce is growing vegetables and ornamental greenhouse crops. These are for sale at the farmers markets or from the farm. Dragonfly Farms also has a flock of chickens for their farm fresh, free range eggs and a veterinarian owned and operated lay-up and retirement facility for horses.
We offer beef and lamb by the individual cut as well as by the quarter steer or whole lamb. Call or email for availability and price.Try some of our delicious lamb or grass finished Belted Galloway and Angus steaks, roasts, ground beef and sausages. Taking orders for halves and quarters of steers to be finished on grass. Pastured eggs available. Veterinarian owned and operated equine lay-up and retirement care. Come visit the farm.

I've been fortunate enough to visit Dragonfly Farms, and what a treat that is! They are really doing it right out there. And it shows in the excellent flavor of their grass-fed beef. Highly recommended.
