Certified Organic Produce – Growing High Quality Food Since 2000
Who We Are
Mat and Cate Eddy started Ridgeland Harvest in 2000 with just a half acre of vegetables and full time jobs. Now we farm full time, grow 20 acres of mixed vegetables, strawberries, cover crops, hay, two growing boys, and a small orchard with cherries, apples and blueberries. What hasn’t changed is our commitment to providing a diverse selection of organically grown food at an affordable price, directly to our customers.
Our produce is grown primarily for our CSA members, with extra items sold at our Dane County Farmers Market stand, a handful of farm to table restaurants, and a few local food cooperatives. Our customers depend on our high quality staple kitchen items such as carrots, onions, garlic, tomatoes, basil, leeks, broccoli and lettuce heads – along with the more unique items and a few pleasant surprises.
Our farm has been USDA Certified Organic since 2004 because we strongly believe that synthetic chemicals, fertilizers, and antibiotics are unnecessary when soil is maintained as a living organism. When the soil is healthy, so are the plants that grow from it. We too are only as healthy as our source of nourishment – our food. We feel privileged to grow food and honored to share it with you!
