RJ Orsten

Orsten Turkeys of Willmar, Inc.


Shane has spent most of his life raising turkeys. His dad, Adolf, started Richmond Turkey Farm in 1975, and Shane has continued working with his family to raise 100,000 heavy toms each year. Outside of raising birds, Shane enjoys golfing in the summer and playing in a pool league throughout the winter.

We asked Shane what his best advice is for a young grower and he said: “The best advice that I have received is pay attention to the small things in farming because they usually pay dividends.”
