They add no coloring, artificial flavors, preservatives or GMO Rennet (Milk contains no growth hormones, antibiotics or rBGH). Eichtens Goudas and Tilsit are hand-made in an open vat which is identical to the way cheese is made on the farms in Holland and throughout Europe. We age our cheese in our aging rooms which are kept at a precise temperature and the cheese is moved and turned daily for correct breathing and again. We age our cheese 60 days or longer - the longer the aging period, the stronger the flavors. "

We've been producing quality 100% grass-fed beef since 2012 from our herd of Lowline Angus cattle, a small-framed bovine celebrated for its impressive performance on pasture. Over the last few years we have added grass-fed lamb and honeyberries and sour cherries. When we're lucky to find them we also forage delicious, gourmet wild mushrooms on and near the farm."

Our pigs are heritage breeds rotationally grazed through our woods, pastures, and orchard. Our chickens and ducks free range on the farm. We started our farm because is was difficult to find local humanely raised meat for our own consumption and we realized that many certification systems for humanely raised products are misleading and ineffective. So we took a flying leap and bought the farm!

Wondering where a vendor’s farm is located? Want to know the best way to prepare a certain type of produce? Need canning advice? Then ask our vendors!
One of the greatest attractions to coming to a market vs. a grocery store is the ability to build connections through talking directly to the farmer/food producer. So if you ever have questions about what you are buying, we encourage you to ask the vendors themselves as they are best experts at the market.
The Richfield Farmers Markets' vendors grow what they sell. And they bring their products on a weekly basis to the market from within 85 miles of Richfield. Generally, the produce that you buy at our markets has been picked that morning or the day before. We currently allow one vendor at the Saturday market to sell wholesale produce grown outside of Minnesota in addition their own MN produce. We believe that this adds to the overall market service and accessibility.
