Biographical Text

Shelley Rucker moved to Shenandoah County in 1974 with her husband Guy to establish the Little North Farm Contract Beef Inc. This company provided individuals the opportunity to purchase beef steers, graze them on the Little North Farm near Conicville, and then have them slaughtered and processed. This custom beef feeding plan was very popular with residents of the Washington DC area interested in sourcing their beef directly from the farm instead of buying it in a supermarket.
Born in Alabama, Shelley spent much of her early life in the Philippines and other Far East countries while her father worked with the Lykes Steamship Company. She graduated from Jacksonville Teacher’s College in Jacksonville Alabama. After living in Wilmington NC and northern Virginia, she moved to Shenandoah County with her family to pursue their business dream for which Shelley served as treasurer.
Outside of work, Shelley had three children Lynn, Brenda, and Cassandra. She was an active member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and founding regent of Shenandoah County’s Narrow Passage Chapter, NSDAR.
