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 processing building for washing, cooling, and storing vegetables, 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 (now with the help of a cadre of hungry, happy, root-digging pigs), landscape work, soil preparation and fundraising are ongoing. The farm continues to grow every year!
