Ryan Olufs with ostriches

Misty Morning Ranch is a small family-run farm in North Carolina. After leaving the city life of Los Angeles, the husband and wife team, Gaby and Ryan, found a beautiful 60-acre ranch in Robbins, NC.

With a passion and drive for sustainability, they began researching alternatives for farming.

After visiting different operations and learning as much as two city people can about farming, they settled on raising ostriches. Goodness Grows assisted in their search for a mentor.

With the mentoring and support from Hilltop Ostrich Farm, Misty Morning Ranch began raising ostriches in 2016. Today, they continue to partner and work together.

In 2017, Ryan’s brother, Robert, joined the farm family. At the same time, Gaby’s sister, Chisel, and Chisel’s husband, Richard, joined the ranch. Today they assist with Ranch operations.
