Richardson Farms has now passed two more obstacles.

We have received an additional two permits:

“Producer Dairy” and “Milk or Dairy Products Processor”

These permits allow us to sell our pasteurized milk and dairy products at the Farmer’s Markets.  It also allows us to take these products to markets like “Cross Plants and Produce” in Kyle, TX., and area restaurants like: Jack Allen’s Kitchen, Odd Duck and Barley/Swine.  We invite you to visit us at all the Farmer’s Markets on Saturdays and support the other local farmers and chefs.   We will add dairy products to our “order form” as they become available.   Future items may include: heavy cream, mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese, flavored spreadable soft cheeses, and cheese curds.  Don’t forget that “Skim Milk” and “Whey” will also be available.
Anyone who has experience in making cheese…and wants to help us get started, is welcome to contact Jim Richardson or Bob Fellers at Richardson Farms Dairy.
Jim: 512-635-3691
Bob: 972-743-2215
This is an exciting time at the dairy!  Thank you all for your support!  See you at the Market!


Wolf Ranch Farmer’s Market News

Below is an excerpt from the Wolf Ranch Farmer’s Market Newsletter.
“Richardson’s after a LOT of hard work will have fresh milk at the markets.  I think they have started the only dairy in the region in at least 20 years.  Even if you don’t drink milk, go over and high five.  Few people understand the life the dairyman chooses.  As farmers we just barely glimpse how tough the dairy life is through our own field work and animal husbandry.  Since we’re a farmers market who champions farmers, it would be great for all of you to appreciate what Jim and Kay have undertaken.”


Richardson Farms has passed the final Texas Department of Health inspection for the dairy!
We now have a “Grade A-Raw Milk For Retail” permit.
State law mandates all raw milk must be purchased at the dairy.
Milk is NOW available for SALE!!
$12.00 per gallon.

Buying Groups are Encouraged!!!

(come with a large cooler and buy enough milk for your friends, family, and neighbors)

According to State Law…we cannot take the raw milk off the farm.  But, you, as a consumer, can come to the farm to buy the milk.  We have a very unique “farm store” as part of our new dairy barn.  It is equipped with a refrigerated room to store the bottled milk, butter, eggs, and cheeses.  In this store, we will also sell all of our Richardson Farms products (beef, pork, chicken, sausages, and grains).

Also, we have purchased a “low-temp pasteurizer”, so that we can take this milk to the
Farmer’s Markets that we attend.  In order to do this, by State Law, we must also buy a “bottle capper”.  For this last item, we have enlisted the help of some investors.  This all takes time, but with their help we will be coming to the markets with Richardson Farms dairy and creamery products soon!

Say Cheese!!!

Our new upscale “Raw Milk Dairy” is now open.

            Raw Milk refers to unprocessed, untreated milk straight from the cow.  The milk you buy from the local supermarket is a different substance altogether.  It has been pasteurized, ultra-pasteurized, or homogenized.  This liquid is not really milk.  It is a chemically altered substance, heated to remove pathogens and bacteria and to prolong its shelf life.  The resultant low-enzyme activity makes it difficult to digest, and the naturally occurring beneficial bacteria have been destroyed.  The altered fat content renders the vitamins and minerals difficult to absorb.

    Some studies show raw milk actually help protect against allergic reactions and boosts the immune system.  It is an incredibly complex whole food, complete with digestive enzymes and its own anti-viral, antibacterial, and anti-parasitic mechanisms conveniently built into a neat package.  It is full of both fat and water-soluble vitamins, a wide range of minerals and trace elements, all eight essential amino acids, more than 60 enzymes, and CLA (an omega-6 fatty acid).  Raw milk is a delicious medicine!

    Raw milk from healthy, pasture-raised cows is in a league of its own.  These cows are happy, fed on their natural diet of grass and other cow-friendly foods.  They enjoy access to sunshine and pasture grazing…not confined to inhumane conditions far from their natural environment and subject to enormous stresses.  Our cows are never given any shots of BGH (bovine growth hormone) or antibiotics.
