Ashland Farm has 430 acres of mixed woodlands and pastures, with wetlands, rock outcroppings, creeks, lakes, and miles of trails throughout. Our dream and our work are to preserve this beautiful land in perpetuity as a working farm, a place to ride out in the open, a wildlife sanctuary, and to share it as the refuge it has been for so many people over the generations.
Asland Farm is located in Walnut Grove, Georgia, seven miles north of the GA International Horse Park.
We welcome inquiries.
Currently Ashland Farm has three separate businesses. Although all are known to the outside world as "Ashland Farm" we refer to them as "The GREEN BARN", our specialty produce business, "The GREY BARN" our boarding facility, and "MEMBERSHIP." Our riding membership program gives riders and instructors the option of year round access to Ashland's schooling facilities and trails.
The GREEN BARN serves as headquarters for the specialty produce which we have been growing and delivering to Atlanta restaurants since 1984. Since 2004 we have focused on growing "Micro Greens" in all their incredibly rich variety.
The GREY BARN opened in January of 2002, as a 20 horse boarding facility. Boarders have access to a lighted, covered arena with GGT footing, two additional regulation dressage arenas, a large, lighted show jumping arena, a xc schooling field and many miles of trails. Sandy Osborn, grand-prix dressage rider, trainer and "S" judge is in residence. (See "Instruction" for a list of instructors availabe to teach at Ashland.
Our RIDING MEMBERSHIP PROGRAM provides a way to share this land we love, its trails and schooling facilities with our equestrian community. The schooling facilities (designed by Roger Haller who designed the 1996 Olympic cross country course) include two full sized, lighted sand dressage arenas, a large, lighted sand show jumping arena and a XC course with ditches, banks and a water jump. Membership also provides an online reservation system and social network for contacting other members, posting pictures, and finding riding partners.
