Vernon County Produce
Rich Hill, Missouri
One of our local family farms includes a group of Mennonite farmers in Rich Hill, Missouri. They use tools such as horse treadmills to grow and harvest their produce. Our Vernon County farmers work hard to grow produce in an ecologically friendly way. Check out the video above of a Vernon County horse treadmill in action!
