Come grow with us

Richmond and Ray County have a proud history in farming and rural lifestyle.  Our rural families contribute to the local economy and have made the Richmond area one of the top corn producers in the state.

Area agriculture includes raising corn, soybeans, wheat and alfalfa. Ray County producers raise cattle, goats, sheep, pigs, and horses raised for breeding and riding.

Local businesses that depend on agriculture include Ray-Carroll County Grain Growers and Ag-Power. Ag-Power, a John Deere dealership, has plans for expansion at the intersection of Highways 210 and 10.

The area has an abundance of fertile bottomland that also provides natural beauty for those who choose agricultural as a way of life.  If you are looking for a place to live a enjoy the benefits of working the soil or raising livestock, we invite you to Make it Richmond!
