Interested in learning more about sustainable farming? Want to learn about lactofermentation? Basic veterinary skills? Simply want to spend your day admiring a beautiful view of green hills and grazing animals while helping in the garden? Great! We're trying out something new this year and are opening up our farm to volunteers. We're not currently able to provide lodging but if you're up for a day trip where you'll spend some time gathering eggs, pulling weeds, mucking out stalls, planting seeds, building or repairing infrastructure, or harvesting produce,we're glad you found us! We can certainly use the help and in exchange for your labor, we'll be happy to teach you what we have learned so far about various aspects of farming.
We are not certified organic, but we follow organic practices with all of our produce and have signed the 2017 CT NOFA pledge. Our animals are given free-choice access to pasture and the pigs' and chickens' free-ranging diet is supplemented with a locally-produced, non-GMO grain.
Want to schedule a date to come by? Contact us through the 'Contact Us' tab on the website and we'll get back to you promptly.
