CSA Shares available!

We are accepting CSA share applications for the 2010 season. Please call 860-575-2387 or email I have a farm manager this year, Ryan Karb, who knows more about CSAs than I ever will, and I'm really excited about what he'll do with the CSA!

Hay House Tours Planned 2010

In response to many requests, there will be Hay House Farm, stupa, and Studio tours on Sunday and Wednesday afternoons from May 1 - October 31. Please call 860-575-2387 for details between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. to reserve a spot.

In June, you will see 30 perennials in bloom, including peonies, campanulas, sage, giant cow parsnips. See baby chicks, freshly hatched. Get eggs and jam. Strawberries and salad greens for sale.

In July, indulge in fresh picked raspberries. See bluebirds in the field, Queen Anne's Lace, rudbeckia. If you're lucky, you'll see a painted turtle crossing from the marsh.

August, the gardens are in abundant bloom with a wide range of annuals and perennials. Colors not to be believed. Art classes welcome.

September brings asters and other New England native wildflowers. Take a hike in the Great Cedars Preserve adjacent to the farm, see Connecticut's native Atlantic white cedars just a few hundred yards from the barn.

We hope you can join us!
