Join Jessica and family at Cold Spring Farm for a family friendly dinner on the farm with wood-fired pizza and incredible farm-fresh sides and salads! Bring a blanket to spread out in the field picnic-style or join other guests at the table for the feast.
Farmer Jessica Stone is passionate and dedicated to sustainable farming and is the force behind Cold Spring Farm in Colchester, CT. I toured her farm this summer with CT NOFA Executive Director Jeff Cordulack and got to pick and eat strawberries in the field while learning about her work restoring fertility to the fields, one by one, on her 300-acre property. Dinner guests of all ages will have a fantastic opportunity to experience the beauty of a beyond organic, diversified family farm and enjoy the fruits of her labors. Children will love the wide open space and farm animals including heritage breed chickens, cows, goats, and pigs.
Farm Profile Excerpted from CT NOFA
Cold Spring Farm is a member of CT NOFA’s Farmer’s Pledge Program
Cold Spring Farm is a 300-acre, full diet, year-round farm that grows beyond organic fruits, vegetables, herbs, flowers and hay; keeps bees; raises cows, goats, pigs, chickens, turkeys and peacocks (for protection and feathers for their arrangements); and is home to the Common Ground CSA. Eighty five perfect of their produce is heirloom and heritage livestock breeds include Red Devon and Hereford cows, all pasture raised with hay grown at the farm; Berkshire and Tamworth cross pigs; and Oberhasli Nubian cross, French Alpine Nubian cross, and Nubian goats.
Farmer Jessica Stone has been farming for over 20 years, has a sustainable agriculture degree, and is passionate about farming beyond certified organic standards. She uses only natural materials from the planet and puts them back in the soil. Everything is made from nature and she keeps bees to have a full circle system.
