7th Generation Farmers
Ralph and Sue Fisher have a deep connection to the land in the heart of the Willamette Valley. Located approximately 15 minutes east of Salem in the Cascade foothills, Ralph's great-great grandfather settled this area in the 1870's. The family has been farming the land and raising livestock for the past 135 years. Ralph's grandfather, Eric, raised chickens to carry the family through the Great Depression in the 1930's. Producing grass seed and raising livestock have been farming staples most recently. Ralph and Sue raised four children on their farm. They also have four young grandchildren that they hope to share the family farming tradition with.
