Paul and Heather Wright own and operate Wright Farms. This family farm is located southwest of Hutchinson on County Road 7. Wright farms is comprised of Dairy, Beef, Crop production, Hay and Straw production, and Aronia Berries.
Aronia Berries are the highest antioxidant fruit available, with 3x more antioxidants than blueberries or pomegranates! Aronia’s potential within the health food diet is amazing and something to consider in today’s health-conscious atmosphere.
Wright Farms beef is raised on non-GMO feeds, hormone free, and locally processed. Beef is sold in quarters, halves, and wholes. This fall beef packages can be purchased directly from our farm!
Hay and Straw sales are marketed through retail and wholesale channels as they have a unique packaging system to make handling very easy. The straw market also includes production of a “mini straw bales” popular for fall decorations. They market to local farms/stables, lawn and garden centers and farm stores. Taking great pride in their “farm to table” connection with our beef sales.
