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 "Events" our schooling show facility.
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 specializing in the sport of "Eventing" but also home to other disciplines and interests. In addition to the mixed use arena next to the barn, boarders have access to our all of the event facilities (see below) and extensive network of marked trails.
Our Event Facility, designed by Roger Haller who designed the 1996 Olympic XC course at the GA International Horse Park, opened in 2006. Created with schooling and fun in mind, we have 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.
The Membership Program Is our newest venture. Through membership, we are making Ashland's central location, schooling facilities, miles of trails and online social tools available not only as a resource for schooling and riding in the open but also as a social network for our local horse community.
Ashland Farm is located in Walnut Grove, Georgia, seven miles north of The GA International Horse Park, and forty minutes from downtown Atlanta. We welcome inquiries.
