Spanberger visits Culpeper horse farm

Greenstone Farm owners Jim (left) and Carolyn Miller (middle) speak with U.S. Rep. Abigail Spanberger Tuesday about the type of fencing they use on their 115-acre horse farm.

U.S. Rep. Abigail Spanberger visited a local horse breeding farm Tuesday to learn more about its operations as part of a four-stop farm and agribusiness tour in Central Virginia.

Jim and Carolyn Miller, who own Greenstone Farm in Culpeper, spent time speaking to Spanberger about the successes and failures of their farm as well as how they managed during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Last year, and when things quieted down due to Covid, we had, you know, a number of people coming to visit to pick a horse, a number of people asking for videos," Jim Miller said. "As Covid increased, everybody canceled their appointments. The phone didn't ring, and there were no emails, and so we decided to really not breed anything because we kind of really wanted to reduce the size of the herd anyway."
