Greg & Debbie’s two son’s Jacob (now age 22) and Benjamin (now age 19) are actively involved in Spittin’ Creek and have grown up with the llamas and alpacas. This family endeavor has 3 generations involved (Greg & Debbie, their two children, Jake & Ben and Greg’s dad Dan). Spittin’ Creek started with 2 llamas and has since grown to more than 60 llamas, 25 alpacas and 1 miniature donkey. The family also includes 2 Great Pyrenees, a Newkom, a Yorkshire Terrier and a ShihPoo.
Even with all of their farm responsibilities, the family has other interests and activities. Greg has worked at Carbide Probes Inc. since high school and in 2008 became President of Carbide Probes (a family business started some 50 years ago by his grandfather).
Debbie is a stay at home mom and incredibly active in the community: she is currently an ILR-Show Division halter, performance & youth judge, chair of the ILR-SD Youth Committee, member of the ILR-SD Governing Board and she also serves on the Reunion Committee for her high school graduating class.
Their sons, Jake and Ben enjoy working with their animals when they have time. Jake graduated from Wright State University in May 2014 with a Degree in Business specializing in Supply Chain Management. Ben graduated from Cedarville High School and the Greene County Career Center in May 2014. After graduating both Jake and Ben will be working for Carbide Probes.
At Spittin’ Creek, we feel that it is important to conduct business with honesty and integrity…we love our animals and would not have it any other way. Greg & Debbie plan to continue to raise, breed and show quality llamas and never lose sight of what is really important…FAMILY!
