Welcome to the Crooked River Farms website. We are Keith and Eileen Carter and we are located 35 miles east of Kansas City, in the small town of Richmond, MO. We have a small farming operation that includes the raising of quality Miniature Herefords and "All Natural Beef."
Miniature Herefords are full blooded Herefords and are registered through the American Hereford Association. Just like other Herefords, they are primarily used a beef cattle, however, they are also raised for the “show ring” as well. Miniature Herefords are not “dwarfs,” but instead, brought about by a specific breeding program that started back in the early 1970‘s. This program has ultimately reduced their size to as small as 30-50% of the “modern” Herefords. Miniature Herefords are know to be very docile and sweet temperament animals that are easy on the pasture/fences, and adapts well to all environments.
So, whether you’re looking for breeding seed stock, a “hobby,” a meat producer, a 4H or FFA project, or even just some beautiful pasture “ornament,” check out these beautiful animals and all they have to offer. You won’t be disappointed.
Don’t forget to check out our “For Sale” page and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to give us a call, e-mail, or better yet, drop on by for a visit. But, we must warn you, keep your pitching arm warmed up, our Chocolate Lab “Bandit” thinks every guest's job is to toss him his tennis ball.
