Robyn and I felt like gardeners starting our little plots in the hoop house. We did a preliminary harvest of a few items, that are available... read more »

Groundhogs, Lemurs & Organic Plant Sale Updates

Posted on February 1st, 2021
Tomorrow is that silly day when we turn to a rodent to help us predict the future.  More than ever before, I have a good feeling that whatever Punxsutawney Phil tells us, we will make the best of it.  Six more weeks of winter?...no problem.  Early spring?...bring it on.  After... read more »

Happiest New Year to All!

Posted on January 1st, 2021
  Hello 2021, we are so happy that you are here!  The past year threw us some major curve balls that no one saw coming.  We don't need to dwell into those details.  Sigh.  Back in 2019 we were really excited about our big new adventure for 2020...chickens!  Little did we... read more »

Feel the Love with Local Shrub

Posted on November 13th, 2020
  As I sit to write this farm happening, there is what appears to be a cocktail on my desk...it's 11am!  However a cocktail it is not.  But it's just as good!  It is a glass of bubbly water and a splash of Basil Siren Shrub.  I discovered Siren Shrub about a year ago thanks... read more »

Planting for a Brighter Future

Posted on October 20th, 2020
  Hard to believe we are here...the end of the season.  It's bitter sweet to end every season but this season was like no other.  I don't need to dwell on how difficult life has been due to the pandemic and how hard it has hit many people, both financially and mentally.  But we ARE... read more »

Looking Back and Planning Ahead for 2021

Posted on September 8th, 2020
  Gone are the days of summer I guess.  That was fast.  We are in the 13th week of the 20 week season and honestly I had no idea back in April if we would ever get to this point.  What a season it has been.  So many changes not only here at the farm but everywhere on this gigantic... read more »

Farewell Jeff: Thank You for 11 Seasons!

Posted on August 10th, 2020
It's been 11 seasons since Jeff reached out asking about working here at Park Ridge Organics as an intern.  His family had a vegetable farm, but UW River Falls internship rules frowned on working at your home farm.  I suspect he didn't know then that his time at Park Ridge would last well... read more »
