Why the V-Y? It's legacy. Eric's grandfather had a ranch in Colorado, and growing up the times he spent visiting him inspired his love of ranching, and fed his desire to have livestock one day. The name is a tribute to him.
My (Lauren's) background is a bit different. I grew up on a family farm - singing to my parent's herd of Black Angus from a very young age. (I suppose you can see where the argument over whether we are a farm or a ranch comes in now, can't you?)
When Eric and I met in the spring of 2013 we both knew what we wanted out of life: and it involved a bunch of cows, and providing them with love, respect, and plenty of hay. But how could we sustain that goal? Fortunately, we are both very passionate about bringing those quality, loved cows to the market. That's where you come in.
Whatever your reasons for being here, welcome! We are happy to meet you!
