About Richardson Farms

The Richardson family has been involved in farming for several generations. We are conservation minded (we practice “conservation tillage”) in our farming efforts and care deeply about the health and well-being of our animals. All of our livestock are in large open areas/pastures and are free to interact with each other.

We grind our own pig feed from grain raised on the farm. The corn is raised using the conservation tillage techniques.

Still used on the farm is an old grain drill. This grain drill was Jim’s grandfathers that he farmed with many many years ago. It is called a Vanburen grain drill. This shows how many generations have been in farming and used this machine to raise grain. May look old, but works as good as a new one. It even has handwriting from Jim’s grandfather under the lids to indicate what settings to put the drill in for certain crops. There have now been 4 generations that have used this grain drill.
