Bo-Riggs Cattle Company, although relatively new as NH farms go, is steeped in family tradition with Tiffany and Dana Briggs coming from farm families. Dana grew up on a 3rd generation dairy farm in Deerfield, New Hampshire. Tiffany grew up raising beef cattle through the 4-H program in Sullivan, NH.

black cows in field-001In the fall of 2006 they moved back to Sullivan in Southwestern New Hampshire and began growing and selling Black Angus meat direct to the public, under the name of Bo-Riggs Cattle Company, a combination of Tiffany’s maiden name of Bolles and her married name of Briggs. Today they have two daughters who are carrying on the family agricultural tradition by helping around the farm and showing their own livestock at local fairs and regional shows

As do all farmers, the couple feels that food and farm education of the young is essential to maintaining a local food source so they have established a Farm Pen Pal Program to teach students that” agriculture is the source of their food clothing, shelter and other essentials in life.”  In the program the farm maintains an ongoing dialogue with the children and encourages them and their families to tour  a working farm at any time. To inform the students specifically about beef and cows, the couple has also initiated an  “Adopt a Cow Program”  where  students get a photo of their cow and can follow its progress on the web.
