Welcome to our website and thank you for stopping by. We are The Ryder Family Farm, a first generation farming family in Southern Illinois. We’re transplants from the vast deserts of Arizona who left corporate jobs to pursue farming and self sufficiency. You can read more about our story here.

In the heart of the Shawnee National Forest, just off the banks of the Ohio River in Golconda, IL sits The Ryder Family Farm.We offer our seasonal market produce, USDA licensed farm fresh eggs and handmade goat milk soaps to customers. Plus, we grow fall mums & pumpkins that are for sale starting in September.
