The hobby farm is part of our 1.5 acres homestead. We have a berry patch, raised garden beds, a chicken coop and the start of an orchard.

In addition, our Christmas tree farm consists of 2 areas which are 3.5 acres total

We are located in North Branford, Connecticut, which is in Zone 6 of the USDA Zone Hardiness Levels.

We grow a variety of:

  • Fruits & Vegetables
  • Herbs
  • Cut Flowers
  • Eggs
  • Handmade custom wreaths and arrangements
  • Starter plants
  • Fresh Baked goods
  • We will soon be growing Christmas Trees in Spring of 2022.

Currently, we have 20 chickens which lay delicious farm fresh eggs.  We are looking to expand to different poultry in the next year or so.

What I enjoy most is following in my late grandparents’ footsteps, using the inspiration and knowledge they gave me throughout my life being raised in two farming families. I have created the hobby farm I have today by thinking about what my grandfathers’ have taught me or what they would be thinking if they were watching me. I think about what ingredients my grandmother would have used each time I make a new recipe or how she would balance the homestead and family.

The hardest thing about having a hobby farm is not having enough time to do everything I want to do and the way I want to do it. I hope to do it full time in the future, but until then I maximize the time I have.

Ever since I was a little girl I have been selling Christmas Trees with both sets of grandparents.  I loved decorating wreaths with my Grandmother, helping people with their Christmas traditions, and helping them find the perfect tree.  After one of my grandfathers’ passed away,  my husband and I had the opportunity to run the last season of the tree farm before it was being sold. We enjoyed every minute of it.  At the time we weren’t financially prepared to buy a farm out of the blue, but we did decide we would find a way to have a Christmas Tree Farm of our own one day.  Five years later we broke ground on our new Christmas Tree Farm in 2021.
