Heritage Gardens, located in Winchester, Connecticut, was founded in the spring of 2011 to be a Food Bank Farm. Our principal mission is to provide high-quality organically grown fresh produce to area food banks and soup kitchens. We donate over 50 percent of our annual harvest to hunger relief organizations in the Torrington-Winsted area.
In order to help continue our mission, and to provide for the long-term financial needs of the farm, we offer a very well-received Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program and sell to several local markets.
We grow dozens of varieties of over 30 different types of vegetables, herbs, and flowers using an intensive raised bed system. Although we are not currently certified organic, we do follow the National Organic Program standards and have signed the CT NOFA Farmer's Pledge.
Now accepting applications for our 2015 CSA season. Our 2014 season was awesome and we are making some great additions to make this year's even better! Email us for our 2015 brochure and registration form.
