Larry Marble, host and owner of Down on the Farm Radio, began the farm and ranch news program on KKYX in 1995 with a Saturday morning program. Three years later, Larry dedicated himself full time to the program by adding a noon-hour report which has grown from 15 minutes to nearly an hour a day.
Larry grew up on seven-sections of irrigated farm land near Hart in the Texas Panhandle. He graduated from Texas Tech University with a B.S. in Animal Science. Prior to starting Down On The Farm Radio, Larry managed a corporate farm, was an extension agent for Texas A&M and worked for three major feed manufacturers traveling all over South & Central Texas.
Never straying from his production ag roots, Larry and his wife Claire are still involved in agriculture through interests in cattle and sheep production, market vegetables and Deer Management. Larry and Claire enjoy training Border Collies and competing in area stock dog field trials. Larry has two children: Reagan is a Baylor Graduate and currently a law student at Texas Tech University School of Law, and Hannah is a high school senior deeply involved in scholastic and athletic activities. Hannah hopes to be a nurse with Texas Christian University or Baylor University as her target school. Larry and Claire make their home on the Little Ranch at Ranger Creek, just west of Boerne, Texas. Hear his wife, Claire, in segments like Cooking the Country and Rural Lifestyle Realtor.
