Alderhurst Farm was started by Jim and Elsie Covey in the early 1970's. While living in Redmond, WA., with four children, they purchased their first Angus heifer for a 4-H project. Since then, Alderhurst Farm became one of the most well-known Angus cattle breeders in western Washington. Among Jim and Elsies' most famous bloodlines was the great national champion Angus heifer, Miss Supreme Pine 8405 --"Piney", the American Angus Association's Embryo Dam of the Year and progenitor of champion bloodlines still utilized today by great-granddaughter and the current herd manager, senior, Cassandra Garcia.
