Geoff:I was born in Madera county and was very blessed to have been raised around the ag & livestock industry. Our family had horses & mules where I was taught the art of packing & working cattle. In college I was an Animal Science major Fresno State with focus on nutrition. This opened the door for a career path in the livestock supplement business handling customer service, sales, marketing in the beef & dairy industry.Together with my wife of 36 years, Tammy, and I have raised 6 children. As we home schooled our children, our PE program consisted of horsemanship & sportsmanship. On weekends we would travel to different arenas in Central California where our children would compete in gymkhana’s & junior rodeos.
Together we have developed a small catering business that tailors itself to authentic cowboy style cooking while maintaining a high level of fresh quality foods.
I have also been instrumental in organizing & producing approximately 15 Christian music concerts ranging in size from small venues with 200+ attending to large outdoor festivals with nearly 7,000 attending. These venues have helped me to hone organizational skills for music & arts public events.
I am retired 1 year and look forward to the adventures everyday life brings forth. The Raymond Old West Fest is a three and one half year dream we have shared & discussed. The time has come to step out and help make it an enjoyable historical learning experience for all!
