Bonnie Clark was an educator with dreams of retiring to live on a farm. That dream became a reality in the mid ’90s after purchasing a beautiful farm with a perfect little shop located right on route 44. Bonnie had an idea to open a store that would serve her community and support local artisans.

After retiring from her teaching career, Bonnie was able to focus on these goals and opened Lightning Ridge Farm. Having had some experience as a beekeeper, she started with selling wholesome locally sourced honey and then expanded to other popular local products from farmer’s markets like farm made salsa and jams. Beautiful vintage jewelry and precious antiques that Bonnie carefully picked out herself soon accompanied the local products available at her store.

With her genuine enjoyment of the company of people, Bonnie has made her store a warm place to visit and many customers enjoy the environment that she creates. Filled with top-quality products, anyone that comes into the store will not only stay for the friendly customer service, but will leave with something that they will surely love. Some customer favorites are the lovely scented bar soap and scrub set as well as fragrant soy wax candles.

Lightning Ridge Farm is located in Chepachet, Rhode Island on route 44. Be sure to drop by and say hi!
