Derek grew up around horses in central Massachusetts, and started working with draft horses after settling in Vermont six years ago. He enjoys the challenge and complexity of using horses for farm work, logging and sap collecting, and getting to know his community by driving folks around in a wagon or sleigh. He and his wife Megan started Anchor Light Farm in 2012.
Bob and Ted
Our working team
Bob and Ted came to Anchor Light Farm at separate times but instantly made a great team of work horses. Bob is 13 and has a somber personality, but is often the first to step up when he knows it's time to work. Ted, 7, is the more spirited of the pair, but often surprises us with his steady dedication and sweet demeanor.
