As verbs the difference between ridge and furrow is that ridge is to form into a ridge while furrow is to make (a) groove, a cut(s) in (the ground etc).

Ridge and furrow was formed over centuries by medieval ploughing. Th Curved Strips. When ploughing was done with large teams of small oxen— the standard unit in Anglo-Saxon and medieval England was of eight, in four yokes — the team and plough together were many yards long, and this led to a particular effect in ridge and furrow fields.

When reaching the end of the furrow, the leading oxen met the end first, and were turned left along the headland, while. ridge and furrow on the Chilterns may result from the prevalence of arable farming over the Chilterns throughout the nineteenth, and that ridges were erased by deliberate cross ploughing.
