Barbour Farms was originally Sunset View Farm back in 1941 when Grandpa Barbour purchased it. We are a third generation, starting as a dairy. We left the dairy farm in 1985 to go into full time ministry so Dad Barbour sold the cows in 1987. We raised corn and hay till the Lord called Dad Barbour home on October 6, 1999. Limited farming went on till we moved back in 2009. We grew vegetables for a few years supplying 2 local stores, 3 roadside stands and 45 CSA’s. We have have transitioned to American Aberdeen Beef, pumpkins, and a more manageable garden.
