Northview to sell its Pennsylvania property

PEACH BOTTOM, Pa.--Management of Northview Stallion Station, one of the largest stallion operations on the East Coast, has made the decision to consolidate and focus on the Maryland division.

NothviewNothview PAThe Pennsylvania property in Peach Bottom, which houses four stallions, is being put up for sale.

Northview PA will continue to operate normally until the property is sold or, should it not sell by fall, until Nov. 30, at which time the resident stallions will be moved to the Maryland division.

In a letter to clients late last week, Northview General Manager David Wade and Vice-President Michael Golden said: “We have strived to offer Mid-Atlantic breeders some of the best stallions and service in the region. We thank you for your business, your trust, and especially for the relationships we have developed over the years.

“As happens with most businesses, however, circumstances often change and Northview has made the difficult decision to consolidate our operation and focus on the Maryland division.


“THIS WILL  have no effect on the remainder of the 2020 breeding season," said Wade. "While there is no guarantee that an individual or group will purchase the farm with the intention of carrying on our vision, we certainly hope that is the case.”

It was noted the decision was not a result of recent issues.

“This has not been a hastily made decision and is unrelated to the Pennsylvania political climate or Covid-19, as we know some will surmise.Pennsylvania has a strong racing and breeding industry that we are certain will continue to grow and prosper, but it’s not where Northview needs to be at this point.”

Northview PA opened to great fanfare for the 2009 breeding season on 180 acres of farmland in Lancaster County.

Built from the ground up, it includes an eight-stall stallion barn, breeding shed, management and booking office, three 20-stall broodmare/foaling barns, and a 12-stall yearling barn, all completed by Amish craftsmen.

Among the stallions to stand at Northview PA were Jump Start, the region’s leading sire for much of the past decade, and El Padrino, both ranked in the top five on the current regional general sires list.

Those currently standing at Northview PA are multi-millionaire Hoppertunity, whose first crop is arriving this year; freshman sires Peace and Justice and Uncle Lino; and veteran sire Medallist, who has been on the Pennsylvania roster since the farm opened.

The original farm, Northview Stallion Station in Chesapeake City, Md., is currently home to six stallions.

The Pennsylvania property will be listed with Patterson-Price Real Estate, one of the largest agricultural real estate companies in the region.
