Hill family takes over Margaux Farm


Steve and Shelley Johnson and Dr. Joseph and Lynn Fowler have sold their interests in the Midway, Ky.-based Margaux Farm to Jim and Susan Hill of Calgary, Alberta.

The Hills acquired a partnership interest in Margaux Farm in 2012, operating in partnership with the Fowlers and the Johnsons. A year later, the Hills purchased 370 acres adjoining the original 320-acre Margaux property.

Steve Johnson took full possession of the Bourbon County property that was formerly part of Margaux Farm, where he will continue to operate a boarding and breeding operation.

“The focus will be to maintain a boutique operation with large fields and a horse population of approximately four to five acres per horse,” Johnson said.
