Marc McKerracher and his wife Ruth Gatzke have been growing vegetables for the fresh market at Ruth’s parent's farm in Ridgeville for many years. When Ruth’s mother and father decided to retire, the opportunity to take over the 15 acre farm was met with enthusiasm. Aside from expanding their exotic and heirloom vegetables, they now have 10 acres of stone fruit as well as apples and pears. “Our focus has always been on organic, heirloom varieties of common market vegetables” says McKerracher who now plants varieties of eggplant, sweet and hot peppers, summer squash and tomatoes from all over the world.
