Description

We are a young family who just packed up from city life and moved out to this gorgeous 10.5 acres estate in Litchfield county Connecticut. In the 1800s-1900s this property operated as a dairy farm and most recently is the home to 4 beautiful horses. A big reason we have moved and changed our life if because of my passion in providing clean, organic foods to my baby and family and I believe more people should have access to that at an affordable cost. I know nothing about farming but am eager to learn. My husband and I have strong business backgrounds and our vision is to build a community farm share where we can find a partner to farm and grow on our land while we operate the business aspect and source out your produce through farm stands, farmers markets, local stores, restaurants etc as big as you're interest would be so we can aim for organic goods to be normalized and help change the health of our local community. Assuming this goes well, additional land and expansion can be procured. Ideally we have a diverse network of crops but are eager to kick this off in spring so please reach out with any interest or questions!
