In 1926 Stephen D. Grover and C.C. Grover purchased the farm from Yost Byler. Ridgeview Farm has been in the Grovers family for over four generations with the fifth currently growing up on the same land. Our farm is a working farm along with an educational resource center. We host tour groups by reservation and teach them about agriculture.
The farm has seen many changes since originally purchased in 1926.
In 1995, Steven D. Grover (Farmer Steve) and Sharon Grover (The farmers wife) planted the first strawberry plants. We started by selling them under a tent in our back yard. After two years of working under a tent (having the tent blow down a few times; we knew it was time for a more permanent structure. At that point we built a small red barn to sell our fresh picked produce in.
In the summer months, we grow our own strawberries, sweet corn, tomatoes, melons, black berries, red raspberries and pumpkins. Customers can pick their own strawberries and red raspberries while in season. Other fresh produce is grown by our Amish neighbor for purchase in our farm market.
In the fall our customers can enjoy a hayride through our beautiful 100 acres. It surely is a beautiful site on a fall afternoon with all the fall foliage.
Our pumpkin patch is a hit. Children can come out and either pick their pumpkin out of the patch or choose one from our front yard. We grow over 5 acres of pumpkins here. The can also purchase fresh apples, winter squash, beautiful fall mums., corn stalks fall decor and more?
How about getting lost in our 3 acre corn maze? Every year we have a different theme for our corn maze. It is a learning experience with a twist of skill to get thru the maize.
