We are passionate about organic, local food and want to bring the up-and-coming urban/suburban farming movement to Fairfield County. My inspiration came from Curtis Stone, "The Urban Farmer", who describes how to profitably farm on very small plots of land (1/10 of an acre even). For example, the plants grown must have short days to maturity, high yield per linear foot, higher price/lb, long harvest period, and be popular. We live in downtown Darien so are in walking distance to the farmer's market and restaurants, and only 5 miles from downtown Norwalk, New Canaan, and Stamford...a perfect location for a small urban/suburban plot with easy access to its market.
I've attached a presentation that contains more detailed information. We are open to either new or experienced farmers. Thank you!
