Julia’s father, Mr. Bill Roller, is the founder of Little Flat Creek Ranch, and operated the ranch from 1991 – 2015. Ed and Julia own a holdings company, Mareth Enterprises, and have made a living in the pet food and agriculture industry, but have broadened that spectrum to several other industries as well. Ed and Julia have three children, Brittany Lueckenhoff, Alex Mareth, and Emma Mareth. They also have four grandchildren, Greyson, Kennedy, Naomi and Graham.
