Farm Store for Rent. Strong Family Farm is a 501(c)3 in Vernon Center with a mission to preserve the historic farm in order to provide the community with an authentic family farm environment. The seasonal farm store was funded in part by the CT Dept. of Ag. Viability Grant with the commitment to selling only CT Grown and produced items. The store has been in operation for 5 years with the past year increasing gross sales by a third. The store is in move-in condition with all necessary for the operation and inventory to consign. The Board is willing to provide some garden space on the 8-acre farm. We are looking to collaborate with our tenant in order to guarantee success. Activities that the farm has had in the past are a 5K Chicken, Raised Bed Gardening, Harvest Festival, and Backyard Chicken Program to mention a few. Refer to our website at www.strongfamilyfarm.org and our Facebook page for more information on our activities. The lease will be for one year and revisited at the end of the season.
