Charter Acres Beef - Ellington CT

Peter is a second-generation farmer on his family’s land right here in Ellington. The farm was formally a tobacco farm and dairy farm, which eventually turned into beef production. For the past 20 years they have raised a mix of Angus, Hereford, and other cross breeds that produce a high-quality USDA certified product that is hard to find elsewhere. They are open year-round, and customers have always been welcome to stop at their farm. They do ask you call ahead to arrange an appointment. Please call Peter and Verna at 860-875-1062 to visit the farm at 516 Somers Rd Ellington, CT.


Mayflower Hill Farm - Ashford CT

In 2018 Chris & Rachelle opened their farm in Ashford CT. They are farming to maintain a connection to their food, their family, and their community. They aim to produce farm fresh products for every season. Maple syrup in the winter, vegetable plants in the spring, fruits & vegetables in the summer and Christmas trees in the late fall.  Their vegetable garden is 100'x40', the orchard consists of 100+ trees, there are about 1200 Christmas trees, and too many egg laying hens to count! Farm to table helps them to simplify their supply chain, provides a clear picture of where their food comes from, and offers their family and the community healthy choices. They certainly love what they do!


Carr Family Farm - Stafford CT

Nestled on the edge of Stafford, is where you can find Jess and Zack's farm. Since 2018 they have been producing a wide range of farm fresh goodies like; compost, vegetable plans, berry plants, flowering plants, salad greens, vegetables and berries!

Hillyndale Road Farm - Storrs CT

I’m Michelle Jordan, and I’m thrilled to have recently launched Hillyndale Road Farm. Nestled in Storrs Mansfield, Connecticut, my micro-farm and cottage bakery is more than a business—it’s a labor of love. With my husband, kids, cats, and chickens by my side, I’ve created a life rooted in nature’s rhythms. My journey into homesteading began with the birth of my first son. Faced with gluten and dairy sensitivities in my children, I embarked on a quest to understand the origins of our food and how it impacts our well-being. This is where my passion for baking from scratch and growing my own food began. Today, I’m so excited to be a part of the Stafford Farmers Market where I will offer heirloom vegetables and plants, artisan bread and baked goods made with high-quality, often organic and locally-grown ingredients, and vegan and gluten-free options. Additionally, I have the option for pre-order pickup in Storrs and a pop-up farm stand that offers organic eggs, heirloom plants and vegetables.
