Farm History: ErReR Hill Farms is located about 65 miles east of Pittsburgh, in beautiful Somerset County, Pennsylvania. The original name of the farm was Oak Springs Farm and was purchased in 1946 by Eugene Riggs and his son Sidney W. Riggs. It was operated as a small dairy farm until 1957, when the dairy cows were sold and the first Angus cows were purchased. It has been a continuous Angus farm since that time.
In 1972, after the passing of Sidney Riggs’ brother, Dr. Robert E. Riggs, and in memory of his father, Eugene Riggs, Sidney combined their initials and renamed the farm to ErReR Hill Farms.
Like other farms, we raise various crops including hay, oats, and soybeans. Once harvested these products are used to feed our livestock.
ErReR Hill Farms has become a well- known and established breeder of Black Angus bulls and heifers. After the passing of Sidney Riggs in September of 2006, his sons Bill and Dan took over the management of the farm. Bob Hay, Sidney’s nephew, runs the day to day operations. The farm has expanded over the years with over 150 Angus being raised on the 2,000-acre farm. A focused effort has been made to produce premium quality beef with a source of outstanding genetics to advance the Angus breed.
ErReR Hill Farms is one of the largest beef farms in the state of Pennsylvania. Its rolling hills and lush pastures provided the perfect place for old and young alike.
