Drum Farm Studio Logo


Drum Farm Studio is the home-based recording studio of drummer John Louis Richardson in Menomonie, WI, about an hour outside of Minneapolis-St Paul. Set in the pastoral farmland of middle America, Drum Farm has that organic room sound that’s missing from so many digital recordings of today.

A 100-year-old granary barn was converted to a state-of-the-art studio in 2010 and features walls lined with reclaimed, old-growth lumber—some boards as wide as three feet. The wood-lined walls and acoustical design of the room make for a sound that’s lively but not too lively—just right.

Whether you want to record your entire band at Drum Farm, or hire us to record live real drums for your existing tracks, we would be happy to work with you. Contact us and book your session to get that sound you’ve been seeking.
