Loblolly Farm
Lobolly Farm NC

Loblolly Farm is a private, relaxed boarding stable located in Staley, NC. We are conveniently located just off Hwy 421 and we are a short drive from either Greensboro or Asheboro. The owners live on site and care for the farm themselves. This is a great facility for someone who doesn’t want all the drama associated with a large boarding facility. Schedule an appointment to see the farm for yourself. You and your equine companions will love it here!


About the owners:

The farm is owned and run by Valerie Mumm and Craig DeCarlo. Valerie is a lifelong horse woman who brings years of knowledge and experience to this small operation. She has been showing horses her entire life and was an assistant horse trainer at a large training facility in her past life. She still enjoys training horses, but prefers to do so under the guidance of a professional trainer. Valerie continues to show horses regularly on the appaloosa circuit and is currently showing two world quality horses in hunter under saddle and hunter in hand as a non-pro. Valerie also works full-time as a nurse anesthetist at Moses Cone Hospital and believe it or not, working on the farm and mucking stalls is a huge stress reliever for her! She lives for this stuff! Craig is the muscle of the operation. You can often find him on the tractor, working around the barn, and taking care of the farm maintenance. You might also see him scratching horse bellies and kissing their noses when he thinks nobody is looking. He enjoys riding as well and is learning to ride on Valerie’s retired appaloosa, Honorific (aka Tiny).
