Our Story

We are a family-run and family-owned operation located in beautiful Appomattox, Virginia just minutes from the historic Appomattox Court House. In 2013, prompted by his love of agriculture, owner Barry Clarkson, purchased land in Appomattox with the hopes of building a hands-on cattle operation that one day could be reputable nationwide. What started as an initial purchase of ten head of cattle has turned into a fully operational ranch with a herd of over 500 cows.

Our goal is to be a progressive operation offering breed-leading genetics while maintaining a high standard for raising maternal and functional cattle. Raising cattle that are accessible to our diverse consumer base will always be a priority at Spring Grove Ranch. Regardless of the size of a herd or operation, we will work with you to increase the profitability of your herd.

Whether it’s for an event or just a visit to our ranch, you are always welcome.
