Calgary Stampede: Briefly tell us about yourself and what your typical day looks like.
Ray Nolan: Born and raised on a sheep farm in Ireland, where the family farm still operates today. Before returning to the a agriculture career, I was a chef for over a decade cooking in Ireland, England and finally Canada. During my culinary career I was fortunate enough to work at some great establishments. meeting some great people and cooking for the likes of HRH Queen of England at her royal state banquet to Nelson Mandela which was my personal favorite. Also during that time I met my wife, Nancy while working at the Dorchester hotel on park lane London.
Today we reside in Vulcan AB with our two boys Brayden 4, Charless 2. We run a flock of 350 ewes and grain farm. Our typical day is never a dull one varies from meeting chefs to butchers and the daily business of running a farm which is highly demanding. Our livestock require care 7 days a week, a farmers work is truly never done.
