The Wolf Ridge Organic Farm…
- Grows, harvests, processes, and delivers fresh local organic food to the Wolf Ridge Dining Hall.
- Educates students, teachers, and parents that attend Wolf Ridge ELC about healthy eating, sustainable farming methods, the benefits of eating locally grown food, and land stewardship.
- Reduces our carbon footprint by trucking in less food from long distances.
The Wolf Ridge Organic Farm includes three 30’ x 96’ high tunnel greenhouses, a Food Processing Building for washing, cooling, storing and freezing vegetables for the dining hall, an outdoor classroom, a wood-fired pizza oven,pollinator gardens, and crop and research fields. A wood post fence encloses the farm perimeter. The clearing of fields, landscape work, soil preparation and fundraising are ongoing – the farm is growing!
