Chuck Harris, the newest member of the Northview Stallion Station team, will take the reins as farm manager at the operation’s Pennsylvania farm near Peach Bottom.
With decades of experience at a number of prominent farms in the region, Harris, 39, comes to Northview PA from Maryland, where for the past seven years he was farm manager of Frank and Virginia Wright’s Huntingfields Farm near Huntingtown.
Harris grew up working at Edward P. Evans’s Spring Hill Farm near Cassanova, Va. assisting his father, farm manager Edward Harris. Upon heading out on his own, Harris was an assistant manager at Herman and Monica Greenburg’s Rutledge Farm near Middleburg, Va. for most of the 1990s. He branched out to tackle new challenges when coordinating and maintaining the operation of Hickory Tree Farm near The Plains before moving on to Huntingfields.
With years of experience from foaling and mare care to yearling sales preparation, farm maintenance, coordinating, and supervising, Harris provides a well-rounded outlook to the daily operation at Northview PA.
In addition to Harris taking the reins at Northview PA, stallion manager Louis Merryman will assume the duties of farm manager of Northview’s Chesapeake City division.
