Raised in Carlisle, Pennsylvania as both a farmer and a scholar, Rick has developed a love of both the outdoors and intellectual pursuits. After earning his law degree at the University of Michigan, Rick and his wife Debbie moved to Oregon to begin their family. After finding the Bagby farm in the Willamette Valley, Rick looked to grow both his farm and his law practice.
During his years of corporate litigation, Rick regularly found his time tending to this farm to be the most enjoyable. After retiring from practicing law, Rick and his son Alex began to turn a once small family farm into a burgeoning business. Rick now enjoys time with his grandchildren, teaching them about farming and life lessons while managing his herd.
Growing up on the homestead, Alex was involved with daily operations from an early age. Instilled with a love of both farming and learning, Alex has continued both into the present.
Alex and his wife Joanna raise two energetic children near the farm. Their children have grown up around the farm and regularly help “drive” tractors and check on the herd.
We have two farm dogs, Abby and Palmer. Our yellow lab dogs help us around the farm but mostly like to play with each other and swim in any body of water they can find. If you visit us on the farm, get ready for a lot of love from Abby and Palmer.
