We are transparent. We are honest. We are farmers.
At Park Ridge Organics we grow over 98% of the vegetables that our customers receive. WE grow it. Right here on OUR soil. The less than 2% that we buy in from other local farms is because they are better at growing those crops on their soil types. That's the honest truth and we don't try to hide it.
By supporting Park Ridge Organics you ARE supporting the local economy. We employ members of our community to plant, harvest and handle our produce. They in turn, support other local businesses in the community and the circle keeps keeping on.
In 2021 we became Real Organic Project certified. This endorsement goes above and beyond the USDA Certified Organic label. Click here to learn more about the ROP and how important it is that Park Ridge Organics is certified!
Our Farm and COVID-19
We have a Sanitation Standard Operating Procedure in place at the farm which includes daily washing and disinfecting for common touch point surfaces as well as food contact surfaces (harvest crates, washing sinks, etc). We have had a Food Safety Plan in place since 2014 and will continue to follow it along with the updated SSOP. We want our employees to stay healthy so we can continue to provide organic, healthy, clean food to our community. Please see our Farm Happenings for some of our posts regarding the COVID-19 outbreak and how it effects our farm. Stay healthy out there!
