Great Grandpa Ruben Frey homesteaded what we know today as Freyburn Farms in 1906. Since then Grandpa (Harold) Frey and dad (George) Frey ventured into the cattle industry.
Dad and grandpa raised purebred Shorthorn cattle from 1955 to 1971. During that time dad purchased his first Angus cows in 1967 from Wilfred Willoughby. Since then we have continued the family tradition by raising quality, time tested functional Angus cattle. In 2005 dad decided it was time to slow down and lighten the work load, so he could enjoy his grandchildren, and take it a little easier. Dad decided to disperse his share of the purebred cattle. Fortunately for us he just sold cows he didn’t quit working. Its pretty fair to say that dad mom still do more than there share of work.
Since dad dispersed his cows in 2005 we have continued building on an already strong time tested herd of purebred Angus cattle. We currently have 200+ Angus cows on the farm and are still growing and improving at a promising rate. While growing our herd we have kept in mind that the commercial man is number one. We have bred our cattle based on quality and not the papers they carry. By keeping this in mind we have been able to supply our customers with cattle that go out and work for the working man.
We have selected top quality bulls and females from very reputable breeders. We are currently walking bulls from Mountain View Farms, Merit Cattle Co, Crescent Creek Angus, Bar-E-L, and select homegrown sires. These bulls are by some of the most proven and time tested blood lines in the industry, such as Alliance, Tiger, Maximum, Emblazon, and New Frontier.
Remember, anytime you’re in the area feel free to stop by and view the cattle, or at least pop-in for a coffee. Don’t forget our Family Traditions Bull and Female Sale, April 20, 2018, 1:00 p.m. at the farm.
