Ian and Ashley
I grew up sixty miles from the Canadian border in upstate New York. I spent as much time as possible outdoors; hunting, fishing and skiing. Education brought me to the south, but the people (especially my wonderful wife Ashley) and southern family values have kept me here. After graduating from the School of Agriculture at Auburn University, I interned at Randle Farms under the guidance of Mr. Frank Randle. There I received invaluable guidance as farmer and shepherd. I spent a year assisting the Randle family with their large flock of sheep, raising my pastured poultry flock and learning the fundamentals of livestock management. At that same time, Ashley was studying at Auburn's College of Veterinary Medicine. In April 2015, we struck out on our own and relocated to Lewisburg, Tennessee where we have branched out into woodland raised American Guinea Hogs and year round shoots production. Ashley is an associate veterinarian at a small animal practice and ensures that all our livestock is happy and healthy.
I am a six year old Boykin Spaniel and I truly fulfill my role as man’s best friend. In addition to supervising farm work, I patrol the farm ensuring no one disturbs the hogs’ afternoon nap.
