The city of Richfield was once just a small collection of farms, inhabited by residents of German, Irish, Norwegian, Danish and Swedish descent. In 1858, the community came together and named their new town Richfield, after the area’s acres of fertile farm land. For decades the locals grew millions of bushels of wheat, until the creation of the market gardening industry at the turn of the century. Within years, the Twin Cities and surrounding areas found themselves sourcing most of their produce from Richfield.
