Owners: Seth & Rachel Armstrong, with our children Sebastian and Violet
Hello, our names are Seth and Rachel.
Welcome to our website. We would like to update you on what’s going on at A.Y. RAAM Farms.
In the past year there have been a lot of changes on the ranch.
First of all on 3-21-15 we had our wonderful baby boy, Sebastian. He has brought much joy to our lives.
We also signed a contract to purchase A.Y. Raam Farms from the previous owner Aaron (Rachel’s father). We have been managing the ranch for several years. Aaron really wanted to sell it, so we decided to buy it from him. This has been in the works for a while.
We have also suspended our garden operation and are no longer going to farmers markets or doing our CSA program. We hope to be able to start our garden operation again soon but we have to get some money together. We plan to put compost and mulch down and do the no-till method.
We also decided that as much as we love our animals, if we are going to survive, we had to sell all the animals that aren’t pulling their weight monetarily. So we sold our goats, we are probably going to sell most of our pigs.
Right now, we are focusing on our Australian Shepherd Breeding program. We love raising the Aussies and plan to continue raising them for many, many years to come. The focus of our breeding program in to produce healthy, happy puppies. We have learned so much about the breed and breeding in general and we learn more every day. For more info on our breeding program please check the different Aussie tabs.
Seth also started his own construction, to help supplement the ranch income. He loves building and would love to help you with your next building project.
We look forward to raising our kids at this beautiful ranch. We have many wonderful plans for the ranch.
Our Farm was established with Love, Integrity, and Respect. We try to reflect those virtues through all the products we offer. I would like to say thank you to all of our Customers. Without your constant support, we would not be here or be successful. Thank you for taking the time to read this and we look forward to helping you in the future.
