Announcement    Early fall has come to Maine and we're still busy outdoors growing things.

We now have wild blueberry fruit spread in stock. We are transitioning our labels to say fruit spread to comply with USDA guidelines. Fruit spread has less sugar than jam. These are still the same recipes though!

Cranberries are going to be ready soon and our cranberry flavors will be restocked.

Garlic braids have been made! Soon I'll be able to make dried wreaths too.

Enjoy the fall. It's a lovely season here in Maine.

About BeddingtonRidgeFarm

On Etsy since 2016

My husband Ron and I created Beddington Ridge Farm 40 years ago and we're not done yet.

My husband Ron and I left the city in Rhode Island and came to rural Washington County, Maine in the late 1970's as young back-to-the-landers. Our property was already a working wild blueberry farm and we have kept it so. We learned to garden and tried a bit of everything. It turned out that our thumbs are pretty green.

I started making balsam fir Christmas wreaths in 1980. It's a cottage industry in rural Downeast Maine and as a young homesteader it was a way for me to earn some income. I found that I LIKE to make wreaths and was soon thinking about the many other creative ways to do it. I started making wreaths with wild gathered materials. We started growing some flowers for drying. Over time we learned how to grow and air dry a wide range of plant materials and I really learned how to put a wreath together. I've sold dried wreaths and bouquets at local farmers' markets and craft events for many years. Now I mainly sell my dried creations at the Brewer, Maine Farmers' Market and on etsy. It's really enjoyable!

Eventually we were able to move into a real house and get licensed by the State of Maine to make and sell jams. Wild blueberries are truly delicious with much more concentrated flavor than cultivated high bush blueberries. I naturally started by making wild blueberry jam but soon found that the delicious wild blueberry mixes well with other fruits we could grow. We now have an assortment of berry jams, all homemade with fruits and berries grown on Beddington Ridge. Our jams have been popular with our local customers and we hope you will try them and enjoy them too.

Frequently asked questions
Can I order multiple items to go to different addresses all on one order?

Each etsy order goes to one shipping address. To send items to different addresses, make a separate order for each delivery address.

What is the biggest diameter wreath that you will make as a custom order?

My biggest shipping boxes are 26" wide and that's the biggest diameter wreath I find practical to ship.
