Jim and Kay Richardson are the owners of Richardson Farms. Jim is a Retired Veterinarian, Board Certified in Canine/Feline Medicine. Farming has been part of Jim’s life from early childhood. Jim spent many hours as a child farming with his grandfather near Gainesville, Texas. This experience as a child has provided Jim with a passion for farming and his love of animals. He has a unique prospective concerning animal care and welfare gained through 35+ years of veterinary practice. He has continued to farm and have bountiful gardens throughout his professional working years. His dream has always been to share his love of farming with others.

Daughter Kari, and her husband Brian Bersano live in Chandler, TX. They have three children; Lauren, Andrew, and Lindsey.

They’ve helped out on the farm with rebuilding an old farm house, planted acorns, and helped build a chicken coop, among many other things. The kids have made it a yearly ritual to spend one week each by themselves with us on the farm helping with collecting eggs, feeding turkeys and chickens, and caring for our pigs. We so enjoy the one on one time with them!
