BAR 7 RANCH
1st Generation Ranchers & Agriculture Advocates
Cody & Erika Archie
"Agriculture is the most healthful, most useful and most noble employment of man."
We are Cody and Erika Archie, first-generation ranchers in Central Texas. We raise beef cattle and dorper sheep on Bar 7 Ranch in Gatesville, Texas. We have two children, Kylee (19) and Clancy (14) .
We also own and operate Valet Cleaners and Laundry, do a little duplex renting, and dabble in home building!
During the weekday 8-5 hours, Cody manages all of the above and Erika works as a Public Affairs Specialist for the U.S. Department of Agriculture - Rural Development.
We are very active in our local church, Hay Valley Baptist Church, where Cody serves as a deacon and Sunday School teacher and Erika as Church Secretary and Children's Director.
We love spending time with the next generation of agriculturalists in our community serving as adult leaders, project managers, and club managers through our county 4-H program.
We serve on the Coryell County Farm Bureau (CCFB) board of directors with Cody serving as the current President of the board.
Erika manages social media content for CCFB and we are both active with Texas Farm Bureau.
Erika also participated in the American Farm Bureau Partners in Advocacy Leadership
We would love to chat with you about
all of the above!
P.S. We have a lot of fun on TikTok and YouTube!
