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. We have always enjoyed the process of producing the best genetics, showing, and competing with our animals. Our history is one that includes many generations in agriculture. Daryl and Sally were each raised on family farms and learned the importance of a good work ethic, and upstanding values. Here at Duncan Farms, we operated a successful Registered Holstein and Ayrshire Dairy Farm for many years. Daryl's parents Charlie and Carol Duncan moved to Warsaw, Ohio in 1969 after not being able to have the opportunity to farm on Charlie's family farm. It was Charlie's dream to own this farm we operate today. With little money and a lot of determination, he along with his family were able to become a successful player in dairy cattle genetics, selling embryos and cattle worldwide, and many All-American awards.
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. Sally has grown up around horses and has been involved with horses her entire life. Sally enjoys riding and competing in barrel racing. Daryl is an accomplished farrier and is highly regarded with his work with horses. Daryl vividly remembers as a young boy seeing Secretariat at Clairborne Farms during a Tour in 1978. There must have been a seed planted long ago, for his love of the thoroughbred! 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 8 mares. Our goal 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 his many blessings to our family and farm.
