Family isn't everything, it's the only thing.

My name is Tyler Wellman, along side of me is my family. I am 24 years old and the youngest of three children. Starting left to right is me, my mother Cindy, father Miles, my oldest sister Brittany, and the middle child, my sister Haley.

I've lived in rural southeast Iowa all my life and I have always had a passion for animals. I was a very active member of 4-H and FFA. From an early age, I remember begging my dad to go check on our cattle with him. When I was about 8 years old I had my first opportunity to show livestock. Showing livestock competitively was my passion and was very fortunate to have great success. A couple of my greatest successes have been Champion Purebred Breeding Gilt at the 2015 Iowa State Fair as well as Champion Senior Showperson. I have also accomplished Reserve FFA Market Hog at the 2018 Iowa State Fair. There is nothing I love more than my livestock. I now currently raise show projects for youth to exhibit across the country. I received my Animal Science degree at Iowa State University, to enhance my knowledge in the field of animals. I have always wanted to follow in my family's footsteps of raising high quality animals and providing them to loving people.

Here at Rafter W Farms we are happy to have the opportunity to provide your family with a happy, healthy, lovable Miniature Goldendoodle puppy. Occasionally we have Golden Retriever puppies. As a family that has raised animals for over a century, we have faith you will be satisfied with your new puppy. We pride ourselves on making sure our animals are happy, healthy, and provided with love.
