Virtual Tour: Biltmore’s West Side



In 1896 George Vanderbilt brought a Jersey dairy herd to his new estate in Asheville. Those same jersey cows led to an overwhelmingly successful dairy operation that was an Asheville staple for decades in the early 1900’s. Biltmore entered the beef cattle industry in 1983 with the purchase of 29 Black Angus heifers. Biltmore has always been, and always will be, a working estate. Biltmore also raises Berkshire hogs, the original heritage breed chosen by Mr. Vanderbilt himself. Although Mr. Vanderbilt originally raised Southdown sheep, our modern Dorper crosses prove well adapted to our climate and able to produce high quality meat products.
