Welcome from the Ramazzini Family!

Christian Ramazzini was born and raised in Guatemala.  His wife, Erica, hails from the US but spent two years living and working in Guatemala where they met and eventually got married in 2009.  After the wedding, they relocated to Morganton, NC, and God has blessed them with 4 children since then.    

Family life is high on our priority list, and so is interacting with the community around us (which, in Morganton, includes about 16% Guatemalans), so over the years we have thought of how we might do some sort of family business to serve the local area.  

As of June 2018, an official family business has begun!  Little Guatemala LLC is registered in NC and the old Feed and Seed at 810 East Union St. has been purchased!  All hands (even very small ones!) are on deck to clean, remodel, and prepare a space for visitors to experience Guatemalan culture on the streets of Morganton, NC!
