We are a micro-farm located in Woodbridge CT growing and distributing fresh, sustainable produce. Everything is grown with no synthetic chemicals, fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides or insecticides from seed to harvest.

Our vegetable share program is a 20 week subscription-to local food grown responsibly. By subscribing to our 20 weeks of bounty, you will receive a weekly bag of diverse, seasonal, sustainable produce.

Our share are less expensive and smaller than the typical CSA share as our goal is for our members to not feel as though they are wasting food. See Share price and size for more details.

The vegetable share program starts sometime between the second week in June and last 20 weeks through the end of October.
