A bit about us and our background; we live in north central Minnesota, my husband has been in the agricultural business working for larger operations and hauling cattle for five years prior to starting our small herd. Warren is also a skilled heavy equipment/ diesel mechanic and currently works as a full time field service technician to help support the growing operation. Both my husband and I have a big heart for agriculture and it is truly our passion. We currently have a small herd of Hereford beef cattle and are looking into options for relocating to a more ranching friendly community and to expand our operation. I would love to hear about any opportunities you might have available.
