Phil & Melissa town
Phil & Melissa share a mutual love for their family, horses, dogs and all things outdoor.
Their Starting Point Farm, established in 2010 in Moreland, GA, is a haven, and a respite from their fast-paced careers and busy lives. The farm now stretches over 400 acres of pasture and timberland, complemented by several creeks and ponds; truly a serene retreat for both its humans and all of its four-legged inhabitants.
Their farm is situated in the hunt territory for the Bear Creek Hounds, with easy access to miles of trails, and a short hack to the kennels. SPF horses become accustomed to seeing Bear Creek members hacking through the trails behind their fields, and are all introduced to the cry of foxhounds at a young age.
In addition to hunting, both Phil and Melissa enjoy eventing, and playing polo. Phil has played polo fairly seriously, including owning his own polo team. They have recently acquired a German Shorthair Pointer, and a couple of Tennessee Walking Horses, so they will be adding field trials and mounted bird hunting to their repertoire!
