We're Dave and Leigh Raffaele, owners of our
small family farm providing small family fun!
Dave, a former teacher now educational internship coordinator, and Leigh, a former special education paraprofessional now published author, left the city and suburbs for a simpler life. In 2014, they bought a 22-acre farm on a mountain in Warren County with its lush forest, acres of mountain pastures, and three ponds fed by 15 natural springs. Spring Ridge Farm, LLC, was born out of Dave's love of animals and nature.
Growing up in the urban setting of Hudson County, Dave had a dream to own land and fulfill his passion to work with animals and grow his own food. Totally opposite, Leigh, afraid of animals, put her mantra into play, "Success is over the edge of your comfort zone," and said goodbye to the home where they raised their three sons. Supporting Dave's dream. they now love the new life they've created.
Today, Spring Ridge Farm is a family farm committed to teaching people of all ages the importance of farm-to-table and the rewards of growing their own food. Call for a tour to get to know our goats and chickens and see our land.
We love when people come by to say, "Hello!"
