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 third year in a row, the garden space has been leased out to Anne Lefevre. She is a fabulous gardener! Anne will be focusing her efforts this season (2019) on growing produce for a re-introduced Indian Ridge Farm CSA in addition to supplying CSA boxes for disadvantaged households in the Mountain Village. In addition, look for her produce in Norwood’s Fresh Food Hub. Anne lives on the farm with her two boys, Elias, age 7 and Jonah, age 4.
