Seth & Rachel Armstrong (Managers @ A•Y•RAAM Farms) with their son Sebastian
Hello, my name is Seth. Welcome to our website. I would like to tell you a little bit about A•Y•RAAM Farms.
Our farm was established in 2007. When we started out we only had a piece of property and a desire to live more sustainably. We started by raising cows and pigs for our own meat supply, chickens for eggs, and a small garden for fresh veggies. Then we had the idea to try to sell our beef. When we saw that there was a demand for All Natural Grass Fed Beef, we thought, “Well we have eggs and pork we could sell too.” Next we expanded our garden to start selling our produce. That is when things really started growing. Now we are still expanding and working on our 3rd garden. We have fed thousands of families with our first two gardens and we look forward to feeding even more families as we continue to grow. We are glad to be able to help people eat food that they can feel good about.
We have been setting up at the local Farmers Markets in San Marcos and Seguin for the last few years. Recently, we started working with City Sprout in Austin to provide produce on a wider scale. We also have a CSA program that we do every week. CSA stands for community supported agriculture. This is a weekly basket that we deliver that is full of an assortment of our produce. We also include eggs, meat, pickles, baked goods, and coffee samples from Aloha Red Earth Coffee Roasters, an affiliate company. If you want to learn more about our CSA baskets or want to sign up, click on the CSA tab.
We use sustainable methods and raise everything All Natural but we are not Certified Organic. We take great care to raise our produce sustainably and naturally, even though we are not certified. Really, it all comes down to trust. We have earned the trust of our Local communities over the last few years and we hope to earn your trust as well by continuing to grow sustainable foods with love and respect for everyone.
We also have an established dog breeding program. When we started out, we only had three Australian Shepherds as pets to make a little extra money. Since then, our Australian Shepherd breeding program has grown a lot. We have sold Aussies all over the United States. We are also excited about our Yorkshire Terrier breeding program that we recently started. These puppies are very small and one hundred percent adorable. When they are born, you can hold two in the palm of your hand. If you are interested in buying a puppy, click on the available Aussies tab or the Available Yorkie tab to see pictures and pricing.
We are registered with WWOOF (World Wide Organization of Organic Farmers) and are always looking for helpful hardworking people to help us with our Farm. If you are interested in learning the ins and outs of taking care of a farm or just want to learn how to live a more simple life, we would love to talk to you about the opportunities here at our ranch. We also have work days where we need volunteers to come out and help. Let us know if you would like to help.
Our Farm was established with Love, Integrity, and Respect. We try to reflect those virtues through all the products we offer. I would like to say thank you to all of our Customers. Without your constant support, we would not be here or be successful. Thank you for taking the time to read this and we look forward to helping you in the future.
This is Leo, he has a cleft palate. Leo has almost died twice, before we realized what the problem was. We have to feed him through a tube. Because of the cleft palate Leo is only half the size he should be. We want Leo to be able to live a long, happy and healthy life so we are trying to raise money for his surgery.

Established Working Green Ranch for Sale in Kingsbury, Texas
~ LIFES MANY CHANGES ~
For several years now I have been going through so many changes. I worked hard to create several Businesses back in Texas. I started the first one in 1999, a construction company. Then we started an import business and an advertising magazine. We have since developed a 22 acre property and turned it into a beautiful organic ranch. I did this with the help of my family who now operates all the businesses. But then in 2011 to follow my heart, I left this all behind and moved to Maui, Hawaii. This is where I feel my life is now, not back in Texas. We have all continued to work together to help the companies grow and continue to develop the ranch as well.
It has now come to the point where I do not feel led to go back to Texas at all. I want to be able to focus on the path of my heart with my writings, healing work, readings and consultations with people. The rest of my family that has all worked together wants to buy the three companies and my son in law and daughter would like to buy the ranch. We are putting the ranch up for sale for $1.5 million. When it sells, it will clear all our debt and give everyone a fresh start. If it works out that my children end up with it, this is ok with me also. Either way, we are looking for investors to finance the sale of the companies to my family.
I no longer feel I am supposed to be involved with all of it and want to pass it on to those who have worked so hard to help me develop all of it. This is why I am simply sharing all of this, asking for your prayers for a quick transition with all of this. I feel I need to be free to focus on healing work and being free to travel as I feel led to help others. If you know anyone who might be interested in making a loan for the purchases of the companies and the ranch, please email me. Otherwise, just send us lots of good energy to help us with the transition of all this so we can create the necessary funds to complete this transformation!
I am looking forward to not having all of the responsibility so I can completely focus on the healing work my heart feels so deeply devoted to!
With much compassion!
Our ranch is a wonderful place to live, raise a family and work. It is 21.58 acres located in Kingsbury, Texas, nestled in Guadalupe County and only one hour from San Antonio or Austin.
While this ranch is a peaceful and wonderful place to live, it also includes wonderful business options for the buyer.
We have approximately three acres of gardens planted with produce, selling it at local farmers markets. We also have pastures, with newer fencing, where we raise all natural beef and pork, also sold at local farmers markets and other places. While we are not certified organic, we raise all of our produce, beef and pork naturally to offer our customers quality products.
Another business opportunity that comes with the ranch is the breeding of Australian Shepherds. Each dog is part of the family and each puppy born is a wonderful addition to each family that buys one.
We also have Nubian Milk Goats (producing fresh milk), Chickens, Horses and more animals on our ranch.
Buildings include a cozy cottage and a ranch house. There is a tractor barn, hay barn, workshop area, and feed room. We have heated and cooled birthing pens for the dogs and goats. There is an area for the horses as well.
Equipment to be included in the sale is a Massey Ferguson 593 Tractor (purchased in 2010) with equipment, 2011 Dodge Ram 3500 Diesel Dually Truck, trailers, and other items (feeders, etc.).
