  • Harm-N-E Longhorns

    by Holly Williams | May 14, 2018
    Harm-N-E Longhorns was established by Clarence and Ingrid Dekens in 2015 when they purchased their first cows. However, their farming journey started much earlier. Clarence and Ingrid both grew up on farms, and when they married in 1981, they worked with Clarence’s parents on a dairy farm in Listowel, Ontario. In 1988, they moved to Clinton, Ontario (where both had spent time growing up) and bought a chicken farm. Clarence has always had a passion for cattle, so in addition to chickens, they raised veal and later beef cattle. Since ​2015, they have jumped headfirst into the Longhorn world and have met many great Longhorn friends along the way!
