Renew your connection to the land by joining our CSA. Our farm is beautiful, a labor of love, our source of spiritual and bodily nourishment. We are vegetable growers with an interest in heirloom crops, sustainable growing practices, and birds. We are signers of the NOFA Farmer's Pledge and consider our crops "beyond organic." Season extension is a main focus for us; we hope to eventually offer produce for sale year round.

Joseph Keller and Ilsa Svendsen own and operate this unique farm in Fairfield County CT. They grow delicious produce in fields situated alongside their ornamental arboretum-like garden. Visitors are welcome seven days a week from April thru November 8am to 6pm. The self-serve farm stand is open same hours. The stunning, park-like grounds offer delights to young and old. Stop. Look. Listen.

Note: We anticipate receiving organic certification for our produce in spring 2011.
