Our Great Grandfather came out west in 1905 from Minnesota looking to go to Alaska and get in on the Gold rush. Apparently he did not find gold and in 1906 bought land in the Puyallup Valley. He cleared the land and began growing Hops and rasberries. Five generations latter my dad, son and I are farming the same property, growing green and red leaf lettuce, Romaine, green cabbage, napa cabbage, bok choy, cilantro, hot peppers (jalape√±o, pasia, anahiem, Serrano's, and habanero peppers), rhubarb, green beans and beets. Over the years things have changed, different crops, equipment, marketing and computers. On any farm in order to be successful you have to keep up with the latest technology. One of the new things we are proud to be implementing is our food safety program and traceability. We now are able to track each carton from each field and the date which it was harvested. Quality produce and locally grown, RICHTER FARM.
