Welcome to our garden log which records the transition of an 80-acre traditional Iowa farm to an Orchard and Garden that supplies healthy local produce to the surrounding communities.  Marcus and Emma Johnson have moved from Philadelphia, PA to Central City, IA to help Emma’s parents Vernon and Mary Zahradnik continue the transition of their 80-acre Iowa farm to an Orchard and vegetable gardens.  Join us for the record of our transition from City to Farm and Farm to Orchard.

About buffaloridgeorchard

Buffalo Ridge Orchard grows vegetables, apples, and pears for local coops and farmer's markets. We have over 25 different types of new and classic apple varieties. In 2011 we installed our first moveable hoop house which allows us to grow greens and root vegetables in the winter and get an early start on tomatoes and extend the season for other vegetable crops.
