Welcome to Shinin' Penny Pastures

Shinin’ Penny Pastures is located in the south eastern corner of Pennsylvania and nestled into the foothill of the Appalachian Mountains in Berks County, PA.

Our story began in 2017 when Kyle got out of the Marine Corps and wanted to look at something other than black cows eating the grass at his father’s property. One simple Craigslist search later we purchased our first longhorns. We fell in love with the breed and wanted to add a few more animals to our farm. We met our first registered longhorn breeder and we were hooked.

At Shinin’ Penny Pastures we have a limited herd due to the smaller size of our property, but don’t let our size fool you. We have a passion for these amazing animals! We are focused on the development and improvement of the breed in all categories. We breed the vast majority of our herd to bulls that we believe will bring out the best attributes of our cows via AI (artificial insemination).

We are happy to answer any questions or show you around if you are in the area!
