Austin and Kendra Martin, the husband and wife team who run Squash Hollow Farm in New Milford, have organized a fun and educational day of events and live demonstrations for the public to enjoy on Open Farm Day. Save the date for Saturday,
May 25 June 1, when you are invited to visit this 10-acre farm which grows vegetables and raises chickens, pigs, goats, guinea hens, and turkeys. Please refer to the flyer for a list of the day’s events. More coming!
Squash Hollow Farm doesn’t grow any GMOs and is free of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. The crops are grown from heirloom seeds purchased through the Seed Savers Exchange. They pasture raise Cornish X and heritage breed chickens for meat. All of the farm’s meat is all butchered at Tarzia Meat Packing Company, located 5 minutes away from the farm. Austin said this leads to a very low stress transfer come processing time.
If you would like to buy whole, half, and bulk ($50 and up) cut meat orders, please call or email the farm to place a pre-order since they will be custom cut to your preference. Austin said that they do at times have retail cuts available for purchase on farm, but pre-order is necessary.
Visit their roadside farm stand for eggs and produce.
