Wolf Ridge Organic Farm

During COVID-19, Wolf Ridge’s farm is busy growing food for the food shelves in the Arrowhead region. AEOA (Arrowhead Economic Opportunity Association) brings a truck weekly to load the harvest and deliver it to local residents in need. 

Normally, the farm supplies the Wolf Ridge cafeteria with healthy organic produce throughout the year. The long-range goal is to provide veggies 3 meals a day, 140,000 meals per year!

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!
