Connecticut: Incubator Farmer Opportunity

6 Jan

Have you always dreamed of growing your own produce, fruit, or flowers? Have you ever thought, I would like to start my own farm? The Community Farm of Simsbury may be the place for you…

The Community Farm of Simsbury (CFS) is a certified organic farm, providing the use of inexpensive farmland, from 1/8th of an acre up to 1 acre, for people interested in becoming organic farmers. CFS assists with plowing, irrigation, equipment, storage, and other services.  CFS offers hands-on training with CTNOFA and UConn so you can learn to plant crops, use a hoophouse, set up irrigation systems, safely control weeds and pests, and use farm equipment. If you would like to learn more about this program and are interested in joining the Incubator Farmer Program (IFP), you must attend the following informational meeting. 

The meeting will be followed by a tour of the farm at 73 Wolcott Rd, Simsbury, CT.  If you would like to view the IFP fields and visit the farm at another time, please make an appointment with Tim Goodwin (tgoodwin@communityfarmofsimsbury.org).
