We Are A Family Farm

How it all started

Ryan was born on a crop and beef farm in Northwestern MN, but moved off the farm at the age of 5.  Maybe that is where it all started?

Desiree grew up with a love for animals and the desire to work with them.  She was thinking more along the line of exotics, but ended up working with farm animals after college.  Maybe that is where it all started?

Either way, Ryan with a degree in Entrepreneur Business and Desiree with a Biology degree found themselves managing a sheep farm south of the Twin Cities.  After the birth of their daughter Olivia, the farm life became a way of life.
