About Us / paw paw ridge farm History: It all started with the planting of a couple apple trees for the deer. Before you knew it, we turned an old, neglected hayfield into our farm. At the time, we only had an old 20 year old front tine tiller. We first planted the perennials-- asparagus, berries of all kinds, and a small 60 tree orchard. Things really changed when we purchased a tractor and began the vegetables. Establishing a farm with no water, electricity, or buildings on the property has been a challenge. Now, we have running water, a pond, electricity, and have started our building. We built a nice little park overlooking the pond and have begun planting wildflowers, ornamental trees, and thousands of bulbs and bushes. We get a lot of visitors and enjoy giving tours. We also feed a lot of birds and put up nest boxes everywhere. It has been fun but challenging. Weather conditions have simply been brutal what with floods and 3 years of drought, but we're still going and improving. We even survived the 17 year locusts and a horde of marauding woodpeckers.
