2 Hereford Families Combined
Mitch and Kathryn Ingram are the owners of Notchey Creek Farms. They were both raised in Madisonville, Tennessee and graduated from the same class at Madisonville High School. Mitch's family farm was established in 1929 and is now the home of the Notchey Creek herd. Kathryn's family provided the base of Hereford genetics that the current herd is built upon.
ABOUT NOTCHEY CREEK FARMS
Mitch's family raised registered horned Herefords for many years. His father, Bob Ingram, and his siblings also used the Herefords for 4-H projects. The herd shifted from purebred to commercial in the mid-eighties.
Kathryn's family bought there first Herefords in 1973 from Dr. John Montgomery in Niota, Tennessee. The Johnny L. Stephens herd continued to grow and topped out at 120 cows in the late 1990s. Kathryn and her brother David helped on the farm and exibited the cattle at junior shows across East and Middle Tennessee.
Mitch and Kathryn married in 2000 and took over the cattle herd after the passing of her father in 1999. The cattle herd has been marketed under the Notchey Creek brand ever since. The Ingram's strive to maintain a herd that is phenotypically correct, with good udders and balanced EPDs. Cattle are marketed as freezer beef and replacements. Look for Notchey Creek consignments at sales in Tennesse, North Carolina, and South Carolina.
