Ray Tyler

Ray Tyler is a loving husband and a father to 6 young children. He's also a full-time learner, farmer, and educator.

Before his farming career, Ray worked as a professional body man, high-end trim carpenter, and then as a welder gaining real-life experience that cannot be taught at University. With no University degrees to boast of, Ray has leveraged his work ethic, his ability to seek out help from experts when needed, and his ability to fall down and get up again has been vital for his success. His passion and zeal for learning new things and never being satisfied with the status quo, often going in direct opposition to the advice of ‘’college-educated’’ experts in his quest to find practical solutions that work for the everyday grower, has been one of his greatest assets.

Since 2009 Ray has been growing food and has been creating efficient growing systems that work for his farm and has been sharing and teaching those systems since 2011 to anyone who is willing to listen and learn. Ray is most notably known for his unique, innovative growing systems for farms in hot and humid climates making approx. $450,000 a year on 1 acre He, along with his wife Ashley, are the owners and operators of Rose Creek Farms and Small Farms Big Change and is also one of the founding members of AgLaunch.
