5th generation farmer. The last few generations were part time farmers while working off farm full time. I grew up on a small livestock farm in Southern York and currently manage my family’s livestock. I work full-time for the Commonwealth of PA, specifically in York County. I was involved in 4H and FFA, in my younger years. I raised and showed sheep, hogs, beef, and poultry. I lived out west in Colorado for quite a few years and moved back to PA three years ago. Currently looking to either expand current sheep flock, custom graze livestock for others, or add additional enterprises. I also have experience butchering.
