HPF History


Charles Ward and his family established High Point Farms (HPF) in 1961 as an equine boarding, and breeding farm. The scenic acres of HPF were the home to over 50 horses at one time. However due to family illness the Ward family was forced to sell the farm in 1974. It then became the building site for a number of modern day homes. In 2000 the farm was reestablished and renamed as High Point Farms II. The reestablished farm is now located on the same street, in the same town, and owned by the same family as it originally was. Though the reestablished farm is no longer a large thriving business, but rather a small intimate family farm it does still contain the same quality care, and friendly family atmosphere as it did over 50 years ago.


Charles Ward's daughter (Deborah Ward-O'Brien) and grand-daughter (Cassidy O'Brien) combined their talents in January of 2000 to create the second High Point Farms, which they fittingly called High Point Farms II. These two woman were a dynamic duo with a combined background in animal science, psychology, business management,  and of course accomplished Equestrians. With two women like these you could not only expect to experience a safe, and educational environment but a fun one for sure! Unfortunately, due to an extensive battle with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, Deborah Ward-O'Brien passed peacefully on December 11th  2013.  Through her illness she was unable to watch the farm grow and change into what it has become  today but she confidently left the farm in the hands of her daughter, Cassidy.  Please join Cassidy in her journey to honor her  grand-father and mother's name. 


High Point Farms II would like to say a special thank you to all of our clients, staff, friends, family, and volunteers that believe in High Point Farms II and help to make it run smoothly.  We couldn't do it with out you all! Thank you!
