Stonehedge Farms is a small family owned and operated farm located near Prescott, Ontario. Living on and working as the third generation, John and Lorraine Ashby and family produce a variety of livestock, and grow crops such as soybeans and hay.
In the last few years, our direction at Stonehedge has been to raise heritage stock, to preserve and establish rare breeds, and prepare a place for the next generation.
Lincoln Red beef

Let us introduce you to the Lincoln Red, one of the oldest English native beef breeds. A sturdy, polled animal, well fleshed with a deep rusty red coat and a wide muzzle, it is cattle ideally suited to range conditions in Canada. The Lincoln Red female makes an excellent easy calving maternal cow.

The Lincoln Red’s ability to thrive on grass and hay makes it an excellent choice for today’s health conscious market. Their docile temperament, tremendous carcass quality, and ability to completely finish on grass fit perfectly for those wanting quality, fine-grained, flavourful and tender beef.

Dorset Sheep

Our small 35 ewe flock of purebred Polled Dorset sheep originates from one of the best flocks in Ontario. The Dorset sheep are renowned for their ability to breed out of season (all year), their strong maternal instincts, and excellent quality meat. We provide breeding rams and replacement ewes, lambs and meat.

Suffolk Sheep

We are currently expanding our flock of Suffolk sheep, bred of excellent breeding stock from highly respected breeders of Canada and the U.S. These Suffolk sheep have a great growth capability and produce excellent market lambs, whether purebred or used in crossbreeding programs. The final meat product is tender and flavourful.

Partridge Chantecler Chickens

You can’t help but love these chickens. They have a beautiful and elegant plumage and produce delicious brown eggs. The Heritage breed, Partridge Chantecler, was developed in Edmonton, Alberta in the early 1900’s. These chickens were bred to stand our cold Canadian climate, having small combs and wattles that do not easily freeze. They lay beautiful light brown eggs and have a reputation as a good winter layer. The breed is well known for being calm and gentle, an excellent choice for a small flock.
