Nestled in the heart of the San Joaquin Valley, our 128-acre ranch is home to native owls, foxes, deer and bobcats, valley oaks, and sequoias. Founded in 2012, Stepaside Farm breeds and raises thoroughbred racehorses, 100% full-blood Wagyu, and Black Angus cows.
Our farm is a decades-long dream come true where we live by one philosophy: Animals come first. We live our passion for animals in everything we do.
At Stepaside Farm, our racehorses are treated like the premier athletes they are. Our trainers are some of the best in the industry, using time-tested techniques to break and train our horses for optimum performance. Each year our horses take vacations for rest and play. On the track, our home-bred thoroughbreds race in top class circuits in California and Kentucky.
We also breed premium full-blood Wagyu (Kobe) and Black Angus cows with the assistance of an experienced embryologist and outstanding veterinarians. Our cows enjoy full-time access to lush grass pasture and bright sunshine. Our breeding program focuses on producing high-quality seedstock. We enjoy a crop of adorable calves in spring and fall.
