Tuff Glasmann (age 8) is the owner of Tuff’s Ranch and winner of the 2021 Spotlight on YouthBiz Stars 6-11 Age Category.
As long as Tuff can remember, he always wanted to be a farmer. At the age of three years, his appetite geared only towards eggs which prompted his Mom to adopt some chickens. After hatching his own eggs, raising baby chicks, and growing fruits and vegetables, Tuff embodied a true farmer and rancher by also raising cattle and alpacas.
“What an incredible company Tuff has built. It is amazing to learn the evolution of everything, from owning a couple of chickens to now having 10 head of cattle, 3 alpacas and 50 chickens!” said one of the judges.
Working with his mentor, Jeff Bennis, Tuff’s goal is to educate more people about the importance of farmers and where the food on their dinner plate comes from. Eventually, Tuff would like to start a non-profit animal rescue business in additional to maintaining his ranch. Find out more about Tuff’s Ranch here: www.tuffsranch.com
