About The Farm
In 1946 just after World War II ended, General Charles B. Lyman, a native of Hawaii, sought out the perfect place in Pennsylvania to start what is now Maui Meadow Farm. He migrated from his home in Hawaii to Pennsylvania to establish what is known as the "Oldest Working Thoroughbred Farm in Pennsylvania". The farm's history is like none other, just as the dedication towards the horses in its care. Set in picturesque Chester County, Maui Meadow Farm is not your "typical" boarding facility. Specializing in the rehabilitation of injuries in horses as well as a structured and personalized experience, the atmosphere is a quiet, piece of land and a breath of fresh air to all who visit and those who reside on its sprawling 65 acres. The farm is currently managed by third-generation horseman Charles B. Lyman III, his wife Nina Lyman as well as now 4th generation son, "Kai" and Charlie's mother, Erika Lyman. The Lyman's have a long history with the thoroughbred breed and dedication like no other, excelling in breeding, racing, and showing their thoroughbreds since the 1930s at prestigious shows such as The Devon Horse Show & Madison Square Garden, additionally, judging many rated shows.
Maui Meadow Farm is centrally located in the Mid Atlantic region and is convenient to all major race tracks as well as only ten minutes away from New Bolton Center, making it an ideal recovery and rehabilitation facility. The Lymans dedicate their facility to retired horses, elder horse care, and rehabilitation of horses. TRRAC is Maui Meadow Farm's dedicated 501(c)3 non-profit program run out of the farm by the Lyman's, which started in 2012 as aftercare and finalized in 2017 as a non-profit. The program was dutifully established after understanding there was a need for aftercare and retirement programs for thoroughbred racehorses that needed a place to safely retire to. The Farm features 65 acres of open fields, trails, and peace and quiet. Three barns house the horses, a renovated 20 stall barn, a newly renovated 14 stall barn for rehabilitation complete with cameras as well as a 35 stall barn set to be renovated by fall of 2020.
Extra amenities include the farm's equine swimming pool, which is 12 feet deep and 150 feet long, a newly planned riding ring for fall of 2020, a cross country field, trails, and airy stalls. The farm is secured with two locked gates and security cameras monitoring the premises as well as stalls.
