Welcome to Masonic Village Farm (MVF). This farm is a part of the Masonic Villages of the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania. MVF is located in Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania, within one of the most productive agricultural counties in the U.S.A. We have operated our farm here for nearly 100 years with beef cattle grazing portions of our 1400 acres for most of that time.
Since 1980, we have used Shorthorn bulls in our herd and have continued to upgrade the quality of Shorthorn genetics. In the early 1990's, we made a commitment of resources to concentrate on supplying Shorthorn Seed Stock to the cattle industry here in the east, across the United States, and beyond. Our goal is to produce cattle that can and do convert forage to high quality red meat protein in a package that is both functionally sound and structurally correct. In addition, we will continue to produce the kind of cattle that do well in the show ring for youth, as well as go on to be high quality breeding pieces.
Recently, we have expanded our breeding herd to include some club calf producing genetics, including Angus, Maine-Anjou, and Simmental crossbred cattle along with Shorthorns. Our goal with these cattle is to produce calves, both steers and heifers, that will be very competitive in local, state, and national arenas. We are very committed to the Ag Youth Programs and support 4-H and FFA. We are very pleased to host an annual area judging team "Tune Up" where hundreds of young people come to improve their judging skills.
If we can help you by providing you with proven cattle genetics or provide other assistance within the cattle industry, please contact us at the Masonic Village Farm, One Masonic Drive, Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania, 17022 or via the information listed below.
