We are Steel Wheel Farm, a small, first-generation family farm with one goal in mind: To improve the way in which produce is grown, harvested and distributed. Everything we do is guided by our mission of being quality-driven, environmentally friendly and stewards of the land. We believe that quality food begins with the farmer, and because of that, we provide only fresh, local and organically-grown items.

About Ryan: A young, passionate farmer, Ryan Lichttenegger was born to play in the dirt and proficiently use (read: ride and play with) tractors. Raised in rural Minnesota next to a seasoned, well-educated dairy farmer, he brings his midwestern roots and passion for the land here to the Northwest. A creative thinker, Ryan received his degree in digital animation before returning to the land.

About Kim: The communications sidekick to this farm operation, Kim Lichttenegger takes care of  much of the in-office and online dirty work for the farm. Kim has loved cooking ever since subscribing to her first Sunset magazine, and as a result, has an enduring passion for good food. A photographer and graphic designer by trade, Kim loves to capture and share the beauty of the farm in any way she can.
