CSA - Community Supported Agriculture
Since 2007, we have invited people to take part in Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) here on our farms. If you are new to CSA, you can read more about it at the USDA website, and also at Local Harvest. Please download our CSA application to join us here in the bumper and bummer crops.
Where the action is...
The fields are where the real action is.
Our fields yield a wide range of vegetables: corn; salad veggies; legumes; various squashes; potatoes; tomatoes (we have 38 varieties this year!); beets; broccoli; cabbage and Brussels sprouts; broccoli Raab, kale, and Swiss chard; kohlrabi; garlic, onions, leeks, and shallots; parsnips and turnips; peppers; pumpkins; rhubarb; and spinach.
We have a number of herbs including arugula, basil, dill, mint, parsley, and thyme.
Also in our fields are the trees and bushes that bear fruit, including apples, blueberries, peaches, pears, strawberries, and raspberries. Studio Farm has the trees for peaches, apples, and pears. The fields at Stonyledge and Valley View provide hay for the cows.
If we do a good job as beekeepers throughout the year, honey will also be available starting in August. Our supply tends to sell out so be sure to stock up early in the season. Our product line has recently been expanded to include a great collection of beeswax hand cream, lipbalm, and candles.
If you are interested in when certain fruits and vegetables are likely to be available, please see this helpful chart that indicates the time of year crops are likely to be harvested in this part of Connecticut.
