History of Toms Ranch
Mike Toms, owner of Toms Ranch is a third generation Boone County farmer whose passion for the land and sustainable agriculture has led him to providing free range products including Lowline beef. A graduate of Iowa State University, Mike has over thirty years experience working with animals and farming in Iowa.  In 2008, after intense research, Mike transitioned from hogs, cattle and row cropping to focus his herd on Lowline cattle. In the spring 2009, the first purebred Lowline and Angus/Lowline calves were born. 

Together with his wife, Kathy they raise a blended family in the house where Kathy grew up. Change is happening inside the house. Spencie graduated  from ISU in May with a degree in Music Education. Natalie will be starting her 4th year at UNI. Andrew graduated in May from Boone High and will be attending ISU in a few short weeks. Emma will be a Junior at Boone High and Spencer will be a Sophomore at Boone High. Applying for jobs, applying for scholarships, gathering dorm items, volleyball and football camps, new backpacks.....all apart of life. 4-H is still important but even that is changing as we are stepping down as Assistant leaders and Kathy will continue as Fashion Day Superintendent. 

Family is first in this household.
