At Indian Ridge Farm, we follow organic growing practices. We grow over 50 varieties of vegetables, herbs and flowers each season. On-farm fertility is created through compost built from animals and vegetable matter from the farm.
Because we’re high altitude growers we have many tricks up our sleeves, developed over many years of growing vegetables in the region. Our growing season is short. It starts in early April and ends in early October. Our frost-free dates are early June to early September. Snow in April, May, September and October is not uncommon! Our methods are labor intensive, but we feel that’s what it takes to grow only the healthiest, most nutritious food available.
For the second year in a row, the garden space has been leased out to Anne Lefevre. She is a fabulous gardener! Last season she was able to grow for a 20-member CSA, but this year had decided to focus more on commercial growing for the Fresh Food Hub in Norwood. She will also provide veggies to the CSA program for disadvantaged households in the Mountain Village. Anne lives on the farm with her two boys, Elias, age 6 and Jonah, age 3.
