Sherwood Farm's heated farm stand makes for a comfortable and convenient stop, offering fruit from CT orchards, farm-fresh eggs and Hudson Valley meat products in addition to his wide variety of produce.

Sherwood Farm on 355 Sport Hill Road (Rt. 59) in Easton makes it easy for you to buy locally grown. Tom Sherwood probably grows a wider range of organic and conventional vegetables, many of which are heirloom varieties, than any other farmer in the area. Those heirloom seeds are handed down from his family, which has been farming the land for over 300 years.

Squash and peppers are brought in by the bushel full from the fields as customers shop.

Across from the Hellen Keller School on Sport Hill Road in Easton, Tom’s four-season farm stand sells just picked seasonal produce from his fields along with fruit brought in from local orchards. Baskets of squash, corn, tomatoes, beans, potatoes, sweet potatoes, peppers, eggplants, plums, peaches, apples, and pears line the shelves.

Free range eggs from the farm are available year round in the stand's fridge;the honor system is used in the winter.

But don’t miss the back of the stand where you’ll find the free-range eggs, local fresh mozzarella, and Hudson Valley farmhouse meat products. The stand will be closing for the season around Thanksgiving except for eggs, which are sold year-round on the honor system.
