Patt married Jim Rischer in June of 1971 and had over 50 wonderful years together. Soon after their marriage Patt joined the family business at Raymond’s Turkey Farm in Methuen. Patt and Jim have owned and operated Raymond’s for the past 25 years. She took great pride in the farm and was very proud of it. She loved seeing the customers especially during The Thanksgiving Holiday. She was also very glad when her children joined her running the business.
