Aggie Derby Jay Hill & Freya
Jay Hill is a second-generation farmer in southern New Mexico and West Texas. He farms 17,000 acres of alfalfa, wheat, oats, cotton, and wine grapes in West Texas and grows a variety of vegetables and seed crops in New Mexico.
Jay's story began in a tractor tire sandbox on a small hobby farm, but with a growing passion for agriculture, people and serving his community, Jay, alongside his dad and incredible team, has grown the farm to what it is today. Jay, determined to serve the agriculture industry to his fullest, spends his free time traveling the country with his wife and daughter, advocating for ag and sharing his story.
Jay is riding Freya, the princess pony his precious daughter dreams of. Don't let her good looks fool you, she is a competitor at heart and hates to get beat by the boys. With her champion bloodlines and his competitive spirit, we wouldn't be surprised to see them fly across the finish line lengths ahead of the rest.
