WHO WE ARE
We are Steve and Carol Riggs and partner Rich Slattery (Carol’s brother). We live in Shelbyville, Tennessee located in the mid-state, north of Huntsville and south of Nashville. Our farm is called Bluhen Farms. Bluhen is a German word that means “blooming”. It is named after Carol and Rich’s beloved mother, Rotraud, who was an immigrant from Bavaria.
Rotraud, or “Ro” as she was called, died far too young of cancer. We have witnessed several of our family members and friends battle this terrible disease along with other ailments. We believe that toxins found all too often in our food supply are largely to blame. Our response is a commitment to making a difference by growing healthy and nutritious food that will bless all who partake! Our motto is simply, “Better Food for a Better Life!”
