Virginia Farm Known for Exceptional Cattle
The farm that David and Charlotte Caldwell bought in 1988 and built into an Angus and Braunvieh seedstock powerhouse went through a radical downsizing two years ago. But it didn’t fold. Grandsons Daniel and David Chevalier have joined the Mystic Hill team, and new farm manager Jessee Tate has been tasked with rebuilding the herd and the brand. The farm, which at one time counted about 1,000 head, was down to 300 head when Tate arrived last fall. He’s boosted the head count by 50 and is slowly adding additional cattle to the herd.
