Ashland Farm has 430 acres of mixed woodlands and pastures, with wetlands, rock outcroppings, creeks, lakes, and miles of trails throughout. A natural wildlife sanctuary, over the years it has become a refuge for friends and family as well. It has been in the Clay/Calhoun family for five generations. Our dream and our work are to share this beautiful land and to make it sustainable as a nature refuge, as a working farm and as a place to ride in the open in perpetuity.
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 our MEMBERSHIP PROGRAM, which makes use of our schooling show facility as well as our many miles of 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 initially specializing in the sport of Eventing. As of 2014 we are proud to say it is also home-base to Sandy Osborn, renowned dressage trainer and "S" judge. Boarders have acces to our new covered arena next to the barn, as well as the event facilities (see below) and extensive network of trails.
Our RIDING MEMBERSHIP PROGRAM is our way to share this land we love with all its trails as well as its quite extensive schooling show facilities with our equestrian community. The show facilities (designed by Roger Haller who designed the 1996 Olympic XC 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.
