On The Farm

A Young Girl’s Dream Flourishes Into Cattle Business

Not many 17-year-old girls would choose a heifer over a new car. But, not all teenage girls are Gemma Young.

Gemma – the youngest daughter of Jacqueline and Glen Young – did just that, effectively starting her flourishing cattle business on the farm at Young’s Greenhouse.

Gemma first found her passion for raising livestock in 1999 while participating in 4H. During that time, she raised market lambs and steers to both show and sell at Oxford County Fair, Fryeburg Fair, Windsor Fair, and The Big E. When she graduated high school, her parents bought her a heifer, instead of that car. Since then, her love for cattle and this business grew into her own herd of more than 25 head of cattle, with new calves being born every winter and spring.

Gemma’s beef is humanely raised and processed. It is a combination of grass-fed and grain-fed Maine-Anjou and Chianina cattle. The Chianina cattle – an Italian breed of cattle mainly raised for beef – is the largest and one of the oldest cattle breeds of the world. The Maine-Anjou – imported into North America in 1969 – is originally from the northwestern part of France.

20 years since getting her first cow, things have come full circle. Gemma’s nieces and nephews help her raise the steers and, just like their aunt, show and sell them in 4H at the Oxford County and Fryeburg Fairs. What started as one girl’s goal to raise top-quality show beef cattle and market beef has transformed into a true family affair.
