Mat and Cate Eddy started Ridgeland Harvest in 2000 with a half acre of vegetables and full time jobs. Now we farm full time, grow 25 acres of vegetables, strawberries, herbs, cover crops, and two busy boys. What hasn’t changed is our commitment to our original mission of providing a diverse selection of healthy and affordable food directly to our customers.
Our produce is grown primarily for 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 salad greens – along with the more unique items and a few pleasant surprises.
Our farm has been 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!
