About Us

Heaven's Hollow Farm is located on the border of Madison and Orange counties in Central Virginia and is owned and operated by Jacob and Jennifer Gilley. The family farm has been a cattle operation for nearly 70 years. In addition to our children, we raise Angus beef, pork, and eggs that provide an exceptional eating experience.  

We employ the use of rotational grazing as well as the use of perennial and annual forages to ensure the cattle have continuous access to fresh pasture at all times. In an effort to increase sustainable practices, the cattle and hogs are supplemented with grains from local farms and craft breweries, which in turn add incredible flavor and tenderness to our “Craft Beef and Pork.” We strive to raise the livestock with best management practices with a focus on animal welfare and well being to guarantee a premium local product raised with integrity.

Please feel free to contact us to learn more about our farm, methods in which we use to raise our livestock, and how you can enjoy a true farm to table experience.

 

Homegrown by Heroes 

We are proud to have been accepted into the Homegrown by Heroes program administered by the Veteran Farmer Coalition. The mission of the Veteran Farmer Coalition is to cultivate a new generation of farmers and food leaders, and develop viable employment and meaningful careers through the collaboration of the farming and military communities. Homegrown By Heroes (HBH) is the official farmer veteran branding program of America. The HBH logo serves to inform consumers that products donning the logo were produced by military veterans. The program is available to farmers, ranchers, fishermen, and value-added producers of all branches and eras of military service.

Jacob's service was inspired by his father who served and retired after 20 years in the US Air Force. Ever since he could remember, he wanted to be like his father and serve his country for the greater good. He was always intrigued by air craft and wanted to be involved with either flying or maintaining them while traveling the world. Throughout his years of serving as an engine mechanic in the 130th Airlift Wing based out of Charleston, WV he was blessed with the opportunity to build friendships while traveling the world serving our country.
