WELLBOURNE FARMS TO TAKE OVER NORTHVIEW-PA LAND
Northview PA, one of the largest stallion operations on the East Coast, and Wellbourne Farms PA, have jointly announced the transition of the renowned Pennsylvania breeding operation in Lancaster County. Wellbourne Farms of Pennsylvania, LLC will carry on the unparalleled stallion and broodmare services the Mid-Atlantic Region has become accustomed to at the Pennsylvania facility. Wellbourne plans to provide high level breeding, broodmare care, and turnouts.

“We are thrilled that the farm will remain a breeding operation,” said Northview Stallion Station general manager David Wade. “We’ve assured Wellbourne Farms that we will support them and do whatever we can to help them during and beyond the transition.”
Northview established the Pennsylvania farm in 2009 and maintained one of the most popular stallion rosters in the region, as well as offering boarding and foaling services. The fertile property located near Peach Bottom consists of 168 acres with an eight-stall stallion barn, full breeding shed and office, three 20-stall broodmare barns and a 12-stall yearling barn, all built from the ground up.
“We could not be more excited that such an opportunity presented itself,” said John C. Green, Wellbourne Farms CEO, and chairman of Green Family Corporate Holdings. “Location, location, location… Pennsylvania is pivotal to the strength and durability of the thoroughbred breeding and racing industry in the Mid-Atlantic. Most important, this farm has positively impacted the pedigree and high quality of mares bred within the state. The Northview team has been incredibly helpful passing the torch on to us and no doubt we will carry on the hard work their team has contributed to the foundation for the success of this farm.”
