Organic means that we grow our vegetables without chemical fertilizers, pesticides, hormones, or any other synthetic substance. The only fertilizers that we use are natural: composted cow manure, sea kelp, and “green manures” such as clover, vetch, and rye grass. Crop rotations keep these methods effective and our soils free of disease. We work to enrich soil, prevent erosion and protect groundwater. Our food comes from healthy soil that remains bountiful long after the crops have been harvested — which means that you get fresh, healthy produce loaded with vitamins and minerals, from land that can continue producing. We will faithfully follow the rules and regulations of our governing body, Baystate Organic Certifiers, and will engage in commerce with honesty and integrity.
Waldingfield Farm is a certified organic vegetable farm (Baysate Organic Certifiers) situated in the hills of Litchfield County, CT. Since our inception in 1990, we have strived to grow delicious, healthy, vibrant produce through the use of environmentally responsible farming practices and techniques. The farm built its reputation on the legendary performance of our annual heirloom tomato crop, but we continue to grow an ever-expanding array of gourmet vegetables, as well . Our produce is available at our farm stand, through our CSA program, at local farmers markets, and at select retail and restaurant outlets. We also offer our farm’s artisanal food products online and at select stores in the northeast. Take a tour of the website to learn more, or better yet, take a trip to the farm and meet your growers in person!
