Laurel Glen Farm has been in the family since the early 1900's. While the farm spent most of its thriving years as a dairy farm, it has a storied history growing a variety of vegetables and housing various livestock.
The newest generation of farmers have taken over the farm using sustainable methods to provide the freshest produce possible.
The farm includes 45 acres of woods and wetlands along with 12 acres of fields, and we currently cultivate 7.5 acres of farmland that produces fruits, vegetables, flowers and honey. Our farming operation supports our seasonal CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program, and provides organic vegetables to area restaurants
Beardsley Cider Mill & Orchard
The Beardsley’s have been farming this plot of land in White Hills, Shelton, CT since 1849! It was a dairy farm until a school bus lost its brakes and crashed into the barn in 1973, burning it to the ground.
Everything from hay to turkeys has been raised on the farm, including apples planted in the 1920’s, which are still being harvested today.
They have over 10,000 dwarf and semi dwarf apple trees, newly planted peach and plumb trees too!
Guy's Eco Garden
Guy's Eco-Garden in Shelton, Connecticut has been farmed by the same family for six generations. They have been growing 'organically' for more than a century and a half; long before the method was given a name.
Gilbertie's Herb Farm
The largest certified organic greenhouse system in New England. The business started as a cut flower farm in the early 1920's. Today they grow some of the finest micro greens, lettuces, arugula, spinach, Swiss chard, field vegetables and of course herbs in the United States.
150 Year Tradition of Agricultural Excellence
The beautiful countryside with its orderly rows of Christmas trees, neat stonewalls, and well-maintained fields are the result of efforts by seven generations of Jones family farmers.
The farmers of the 400-acre working farm invite families to visit and harvest seasonal crops. Presently under cultivation are 200 acres of Christmas trees, 15 acres of strawberries, 15 acres of blueberries, and 25 acres of pumpkins, gourds and squash. The Jones farmers harvest these crops from three different farm locations known as the Homestead Farm, the Valley Farm, and Pumpkinseed Hill. The farm also manages 50 acres of hay land and 50 acres of woodlots. Over ten acres of grapes are in production for the farm's winery.
