We formerly owned and operated Double B Registered Holsteins on our home farm, the current site of Thunderridge. After dispersing our herd in 1992, we pursued a career in the sporting clays industry.

The original Thunderridge was established in 1994 near the present location. We have since managed Water & Wings (formerly Twin S) in East Greenville, PA and Rock Mountain Sporting Clays. While leasing "The Rock" property, we hosted such events as the NSCA Zone 2 Championship as well as the PA State Sporting Clays Championship.

Our tournament attendance increased to the point of hosting multiple NSCA "Big Blasts" throughout the year. We have now brought our years of experience and expertise in agriculture, sporting clays and game farm management together in one location - known as Thunder Ridge, nestled in the beautiful rolling hills of Tioga County Pennsylvania.

We Offer Guests
