Golden Retriever Breeders

Legacy Farm Goldens

Welcome to the home of Legacy Farm Goldens


 The heart of our farm is raising healthy, structurally sound dogs, who are a true best friend and family companion. We are located 20 minutes outside of Richmond, Virginia in rural Goochland County.

As a testament to that philosophy, socialization is something we actively engage in to ensure that each of our pups will become a loving part of their family. Although performance, health, and structural soundness of the parents does not guarantee the offspring. The probability of improving and maintaining positive traits in the breed through conscientious breeding is greater. Our dogs are carefully chosen from breedings that have been thoroughly researched for sound temperaments plus hereditary diseases and conditions.

All of our parents must conform to the AKC standard for the breed. They have completed heart, eye, elbow, and hip exams. We are also working with lines that have been DNA screened to help ensure pups are not affected by genetic conditions common to our breed.  This is done so we and our puppies' new families can be confident that their pup's health has been built upon continued high documented standards.

  We currently breed dogs from both American and European lines.  After several years of breeding, I was so impressed with the dogs that I was seeing coming in from countries in Europe.  Their structural soundness and the longer lifespans I was observing for older dogs was so impressive to me that I decided to move into these lines with my own program. 

All reservations for the Fall pups are full.  We will be planning future litters in early 2021!
