Messenger Brook Farm
Messenger Brook Farm began as my high school senior project back in 1987. Our assignment was to “build” something whether it be a home, business or in my case my dream stable. We had to create a budget, find an actual piece of land, do a cost analysis, furnish it and create a feasibility statement. Our class was given an entire month to finish the project. Mine was completed in less than a week. I chose a piece of property adjacent to my parents home which had a mountain stream running through it. In doing my research on the property I found out that the stream had a name and Messenger Brook Farm was born. I received an A+ on that project.
Messenger Brook Farm is currently located on six acres in Bethel, NC just north of Greenville. We have a four stall shed row Barnmaster barn with tack room and grooming/wash area. Each stall is 12 x 12 with mats and the barn is equipped with an automatic fly system. We also have 2 smaller paddocks with run in sheds attached. Everything we do is for the comfort and convenience of the horses and their safety and happiness is a high priority. Our future plan is to add a small covered arena in front of the barn area which will ensure that any coaching work or workshops can be facilitated without fear of weather interruption.
