Welcome to Duncan Farms! We sincerely appreciate your interest in our farm and thoroughbred facility. We have been a family that has always appreciated a "good" animal. Our history is one that includes many generations in agriculture. For many years we operated a successful Registered Holstein and Ayrshire Dairy Farm. Daryl's parents Charlie and Carol Duncan moved to Warsaw, Ohio in 1969 after not being able to have the opportunity to farm on their home farm. It was Charlie's dream to own this farm we operate today. With little money and a lot of work ethic and determination, we were able to become a successful player in dairy cattle genetics, selling embryos and cattle worldwide. Daryl married Sally in 1986 and together raised three children on the family farm. We have many wonderful memories of breeding, raising and exhibiting cattle at the local, state and national shows.
In 2012, we sold our cows and exited the dairy industry as this chapter in our lives ended another wonderful opportunity awaited.
Both Daryl and Sally have always had an interest in horses. Daryl vividly remembers seeing Secretariat at Clairborne Farms during a National Hostein Convention Tour in 1978. Sally and Rachel have always been involved in horses and did many events such as western pleasure and still barrel racing today. After getting involved in quarter horse racing, we soon realized that where we really needed to be involved in was the Thoroughbred Business! In 2015, we bought our first two Thoroughbred mares. We currently own 11 mares. Our dream is to provide elite, high quality genetics and provide superb care for all horses under our care. We are very excited about the Ohio Accredited Program and all it offers to owners and breeders in Ohio. We are especially excited to be standing at stud, Animo De Valeroso.
Lastly, we acknowledge that none of this would possible without our Lord Jesus Christ. We thank him for this his many blessings to our family and farm.
