Hello Friends & AHF Family,
Well its official, High View Farms is for sale.  After nearly 60 years the Frohm family has decided to put the large stately old mare up for sale.  A Horse’s Friend has been at High View Farms almost 12 years.  We have enjoyed a wonderful time as tenants.  We have built a very rewarding and successful non-profit organization serving at-risk and underprivileged children around Monroe County and we have built a successful and enjoyable trail riding business to help sustain that nonprofit work.  We have made a home at High View and that is, unfortunately, coming to an end.  As with anything in life, things change and we are now at a crossroads.  As an organization, we are looking for a new home and new opportunities.  We are open to partnerships and farm lease options.  We have 20 horses and would like to keep them together.
What this means is, unless we can secure a new home we will be unable to continue our work. The children we work with and the horses we love will suffer.  So if you have any ideas and can help in any way, or possibly even have an opportunity for us please, please, reach out.

UPDATE: as of spring 2019 we are very hopeful a new buyer is interested and will be willing to keep us on.Fingers crossed.

Dan Hirst


It would be such a shame to see AHF have to close our stalls.​
