Stone Gardens Farm is a family run farm. We sell what we grow! Starting in April we start harvesting greens out of our greenhouses and move to the fields as soon as we are able. We also have a wide variety of vegetable plants, including all the varieties we grow ourselves for sale as vegetables later in the season. As spring turns to summer, our vegetables begin to yield more and more. We start with a large selection of lettuce, raab, radishes, spinach, and many other greens in May and work up to a full variety by July, including our famous SWEET CORN! This past year we were able to store some veggies for sale throught the winter. All our vegetables are grown using IPM, which we are learning from UCONN's cooperative extension programs scientists.
