We are very blessed to live in the rolling hills of Rockbridge County, Virginia.
Our area "Raphine" is at the highest point of the Shenandoah Valley with the Blue Ridge Mountains to our east and Alleghenies to our west.
Our 70 acre farm consists of hay fields, pastures, woodlands and creeks ideal for raising our Golden Retrievers.
All my growing up years my family had Golden Retriever's, and it instilled in me a love for this very intelligent beautiful breed.
When my husband and I were married back in 2003 we decided to purchase our own.
Since then we have striven to better this beloved breed through selective breeding to produce puppies of excellent temperament, physical health and soundness.
Our love for Goldens has only grown over the years, and as I fondly recall the special memories of my childhood with Goldens, so now our 4 children are living the Golden dream as well. Our children's close interaction with our dogs and puppies are part of our daily family life, and the ones we spend the most amount of our time with.
My Husband Nicholas owns a Dental Lab,
and is blessed to work from his office here at home.
He also serves our community as a Volunteer Firefighter. He is a wonderful help to me!
I love being a wife, mother, and homemaker which gives me many hours each day of being with and caring for my Goldens.
It is always so encouraging to me whether weeks, months or many years later to receive a call, text or email from a individual who has or had one of our puppies. Hearing about the happiness and joy they have received from our Goldens is worth so much to me.
Over the years our puppies have gone on to be competitors in many disciplines, Being shown, becoming service and therapy dogs, living in small towns, big cities, country farms, and military bases. giving love and loyalty to individual's and families in every state on the east and west coast, as well as many in between. Also residing in Canada and overseas.
I look forward to helping you find the perfect Golden Retriever for you or your family.
The hard part is not choosing a perfect Golden here at Meadow Grace, what is hard is wanting to take them all!
People ask me all the time what color I like the most since I have Creams to Red's it's always a easy answer...I love them all... because Golden Retriever's definitely have a heart of Gold!
All the best from us here at Meadow Grace,
