OUR STORY - Who We Are
In 1962 Windermere Farms was established by Abraham and Mary Allebach. Although it began as a dairy farm, Percherons were soon added and the breeding program has since become known worldwide. Windermere Farms has produced many National and World Champions. The name has become recognized in high quality Percheron breeding and show stock. Windermere Farms pioneered the art of collecting and shipping semen in the Percheron breed.
We have always been a leader in shipping semen from high quality horses and maintain excellent service.
