“I’ve never met a farmer that didn't dream of only farming,” Ray says. “But I've never met many that only farm. You just can't make a living doing that.”
Ray should know. Not only does he raise cattle and poultry on his farm in Bunn, North Carolina, he also runs an on-farm market, welcomes the public for tours, and hosts 85 kids a week from the local 4H club.
Then he has his second job.
In addition to running Ray Family Farms, Ray and his family run a green home construction company.
