Terranova Farm is owned by John and Tammy Rissanen. The Rissanens purchased and began developing the property into their private equestrian farm in 2001. As a result, in 2010, the farm began operating as an equine boarding facility. The Rissanens strive to make lasting memories and relationships with their family, friends, and boarders at Terranova Farm.
John & Tammy Rissanen
Their daughter and barn manager, Lauren Rissanen, has been passionate and deeply involved with horses since she was 6 years old. She graduated from Queens University of Charlotte with a BA specializing in marketing management. She managed Terranova's private 4 stall barn before
their expansion and continues to do so with the addition of their 15 stall boarding barn. Throughout her years as an equestrian, Lauren has competed as an eventer, hunter/jumper AA show circuit, and was a former Pony Club member for Cardinal II and continues to give back to the club. With Lauren being the backbone of their equestrian facility, she has always made sure that everything is properly taken care of at Terranova Farm, "the right way".
