Ian and Ashley Palmer
I grew up sixty miles from the Canadian border in upstate New York. There 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 on Randle Farms under the guidance of Mr. Frank Randle. There I began my education as farmer and shepherd. I spent the year assisting the Randle family with their large flock of sheep, raising chickens and learning the basics of farming, while Ashley was 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 pork and year round shoots. Ashley works as an associate veterinarian at a small animal practice and assures that all the livestock on the farm are 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 disrupt the hogs’ afternoon nap. I hope to make your acquaintance around the farm.
