Elkmont Family and Farm Will 'Brand the Barn' This September
Maples Stock Farm has been operating continuously since February 1818 in Elkmont AL in the same family for over five generations.
They've weathered 200 years of agricultural ups and downs and now they're continuing to make a mark...
... in our community by branding the barn with the Certified Angus Beef logo on September 14, 2018 as part of the Certified Angus Beef's #BrandTheBarn campaign. The Brand the Barn Campaign features 40 Farms and their families in 40 communities across the United States that are part of the Certified Angus Brand 40th Anniversary.
This honor heralds the decision by Mack to purchase Scottish Angus cattle and set forth a tradition of good cattle which is enduring generation to generation. What started with the purchase of a lone bull that grew to a foundation herd and now offers breeding stock for sale to farmers everywhere -- as well as locally raised Angus Beef for purchase has become a legacy in Limestone County Alabama and part of our 200 years of history, heritage, places, and people.
