Welcome

We are a small family farm in on Marvin Road in Colchester, CT. We care about bringing sustainable practices, heirloom varieties, and wholesome food into every home. Starting in 2021, we're trying to offer all of our classes pre-recorded & on-demand! Hopefully we'll eventually be able to have them in person...but for now you can come on a virtual tour of our farm in an online class. Just add a class to your cart, check out & Mark will email you the links to access the class(es) and any presentation materials or handouts that will support you after watching the video! As you're learning, if you have follow up questions, just send them our way. Sometimes, Mark will make a custom video response just for you.

This shift in learning has helped us offer classes to people who we'd usually never meet because of distance and conflicts in their hours of availability. By offering the classes as videos, you can watch them over and over, ask follow up questions, and dive into the handouts, links, and support videos. You can try out something at home and revisit the content to get new understandings from the lesson now that you've gained first-hand experience. Our customers have enjoyed this format so we're giving them the experience they want.

When available we sell mushroom logs grown here on the farm. 

We build top bar and Warré bee hives. We craft chicken coops and runs to meet the needs of local families. 

Supporting local homesteaders to raise their livestock ethically, grow their own wholesome food, and learn how-to skills is a joy and an honor.
