Our Farm is a Project of Passion

 

The name Emmett means strong, hardworking and industrious leader.  At Emmett Ridge Farm that is exactly what we aim to do and be.  Our mission is to lead the charge in the direction a vibrant and sustainable LOCAL food system.  In working together we can create nutrient dense, flavorful, integrity filled food while respecting the land and animals entrusted to us.

Emmett Ridge Farm is located on 211 of picturesque farmland in Georgetown Ohio.  The farm is run by us, Jeremy and Lauren Boswell and our parents Nancy and Dan Henson, who own the land.  The farm started in our backyard as chickens and 4 hogs that were the beginning stages of a dream and a calling from God.  After the birth of our first child what we put on our plates and in our bodies became more important to us.  As we educated ourselves on our food system and how our food was being produced we became more and more convinced that we needed to do something about it.

Four years later Jeremy works full time at the farm with the help of Matt Beusterien our one full-time employee.  We are raising grass fed Scottish Highland cross beef, pasture raised heritage breed pork and pasture raised chicken.  We have set up the farm in a sustainable model that works with the land instead of against it.  We want to create a vibrant living ecosystem that gives back for generations to come.
