We are Richard and Katie Mueller from Regal, MN. Although we are in our fifties, we are also beginning farmers. I grew up on a farm near Regal, but went into construction in my early twenties. Kate grew up in Paynesville, MN and worked in food services. We have four adult children and two grandchildren. I guess we have worked and saved all these years to go farming.
Our farm (previously the William Keller Ranch) is located from Regal, MN about 1/2 mile south on County Road 2, 1 mile west on County Road 109, 1 mile south on county road 137 and then 1/2 mile west on 270th street.
It has been certified organic since 2003. The soils are well balanced and calcium rich but underlaid by course gravel; therefore, much better suited to growing grass and small grains than corn or soybeans.
Our goal is:
to provide healthy and nutritional
• balanced food, free of chemicals, antibiotics, and industrial farming and processing practices
• to establish a viable farm that we can
• pass to the next generation when we are too old to keep farming
Feel free to call or just stop by. We have happy cows in green pastures with shade trees and fresh water. Come and see if cows actually do smile.
