Stone Gardens Farm is a diversified first generation family farm nestled within the White Hills of Shelton Connecticut. First starting out in 1998, with only a couple of acres of sweet corn and mixed vegetables sold on the front lawn of an old dairy farm, our farm has seen tremendous growth over the last 20 years. We currently grow 60 acres of mixed vegetables; raise a herd of 50+ beef cows, 20+ pigs, 500+ turkeys for the holidays, along with broiler chickens and laying hens. We now manage over 300 acres of farmland; none of which is preserved from development. We have been preserving it the old fashioned way, by keeping it profitable through active farming. Our harvest is sold through our farm stand, a year-round CSA program, 3 farmers markets, and to a couple of restaurants; none is sold wholesale. We believe this method cuts out the middleman thus retaining the profits on farm. While not an organic farm, we practice Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which basically means that we only spray crops when absolutely necessary, and after all other measures to save the crop have been implemented. If it is deemed necessary to spray, we target the exact problem and try to use the most environmentally-friendly pesticide or fungicide possible; we also rotate crops yearly, adding compost and manure to the fields every fall as well as planting cover crops to minimize the affect of any type of pesticide used. "Our goal is to grow healthy plants without harming any beneficial insects, the soil, or ourselves," said Stacia Monahan of their growing practices. "We love being able to grow real food for real people. We raise our family in these fields, and we want you to feel comfortable doing the same." Customers may purchase vegetables, meats, eggs, and more from Stone Gardens at their farm stand, located at 83 Saw Mill City Road, which operates daily from May to Thanksgiving and weekends during the off season. We also sell at the Shelton CT Farmers' Market.

We just joined the CSA recently and are so happy we did. I look forward each week to the e-mail that tells us what we will be getting in our share. Everything is so delicious and they do a great job of organizing the shares.... [more]
My wife and I were lucky to get into Stone Gardens Farm two years ago when they first began offered shares in their CSA. We were new to the concept of CSA's, but learned that they were a great way to get great local produce and also to support local farmers.... [more]
