This land is still proudly feeding the community today. Present day production offers the best of a New England farm, with a retail stand offering a diversified selection of fruits and vegetables all grown on sight. Our 200 acre farm is not just a place to shop. It is local, healthy and fresh and comes with a commitment towards the highest quality produce.
