About Heintzman Farms

Located in the center of South Dakota, Heintzman Farms started growing and selling flax seeds back in the early 90’s, by Rick Heintzman. Rick knowing that flax was a healthy alternative for a better life style started his research and discovered that there are medical benefits of the flax seed and oil.       

Now for the last 25 years, Rick has created a market for his Dakota Flax Gold locally in the United States. The reason flax seed is not used in the food industry is primarily because it has unstable oil, from the seed by not being ground. Without grinding the seed, our digestive system cannot absorb the nutrition jam-packed into these little golden gems.

So, Rick figured out a way to stabilize this seed. He put together a user friendly kit consisting of an electric grinder and Golden Flax seeds, with information on how to use it in its uncooked form.
