Our goal at Indian Ridge Farm & Bakery is to provide a stronger, more sustainable region by nurturing a secure and nutritious food shed.
We want to provide regional residents with the highest quality, organically grown food available from a local source at affordable prices. We appreciate and are grateful for your commitment to this vision. Farmers and
their customers help strengthen agrarian communities such as Norwood, by adding to the diversity, the fabric and the vitality of the region. Because of your support, the overall ecosystem and all its components — the water, air and soil — benefit because of healthy farm management practices. Open space is preserved. Our reliance on the harmful effects of industrial, corporate agriculture is lessened. In our relatively short lifetime, there’s never been a more important time for all of us to be the positive change we are all seeking for humanity’s continued existence on Planet Earth. As a consumer of our locally grown products, this becomes one of your ways of connecting to the land and contributing to a better region.
At the bakery, which is situated in a beautiful historic Main Street building, we use only the freshest organic ingredients in all our products. The bakery is nationally famous for its very popular and addictive granola. Once you’ve tried some, we’re sure you’ll join others who have exclaimed, “This is the best granola I’ve ever had!” We can ship the granola anywhere in the US. Also produced in the bakery are fresh breads, baguettes, cookies, scones, pizza crusts, rolls, and special orders. When the calendar allows, the bakery can be your source for special occasion cakes, such as weddings, birthdays and anniversaries.
How do we know if our mission statement has been achieved? One gauge is from the feedback we constantly receive from our hundreds of satisfied customers, who, after 15 years of operation, have come to rely on the consistently good, nutritious food we produce. Another is by noting that several former apprentices and employees all reside here in the Norwood area pursuing various enterprises of their own. In fact, two of our former intern/apprentices are employed right here at the bakery! So, yes, there is a strong economic and social component to producing healthy food locally. With that said, we’ll remain focused on our mission statement!
