Gazy Brothers Farm is going on its fourth generation of farming. Established in 1918, Grandma and Grandpa Gazy purchased the farm in Oxford, Connecticut. At that time, they raised the freshest vegetables sold at local grocery stores and delis.
Today, Ed Gazy runs the 80 acre farm with the help of his wife, Alexis; their four children, Dominic, Roseanne, Nicholas, and Albert; and his brothers, Pete and Tony. Ed, Pete, and Tony own the farm and runs the small farm stand during the harvesting season.
The Gazys currently produce approximately 25 acres of fresh vegetables, herbs, and flowers on the farm and on neighbors' properties. Ed and family also keep busy by working up to 200 acres of hay annually. Besides their small farm stand, the Gazys sell their produce at local farmers' markets, a roadside stand on Route 67 in Oxford, and to local grocery stores when there is extra available. Their latest project is to establish a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) now in its ninth season.
The produce grown on the farm is not organic, however, it is raised through an integrated pest management system, which reduces the use of fertilizers, pesticides, and other chemicals to ensure healthy plants and flavorful vegetables.

I have had a wonderful CSA experience. The vegetables were delicious and plentiful. We not only enjoyed a spring, summer and fall worth of veggies we now have a freezer full of tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, carrots and lots others to enjoy all winter!

I have been a CSA member of Gazy Brothers for a few years now, for every season. The farmers are wonderful to deal with, and the produce is amazing. In the spring you primarily get leafy greens and lettuces, so if that's not your thing I would skip that season.... [more]
