CT NOFA's 35th Annual
Organic Food, Farm, & Garden Conference

Saturday & Sunday
March 11 & 12, 2017

Western Connecticut State University, Danbury, CT

CT NOFA’s Annual Winter Conference is the premier event where farmers, landscapers, foodies, gardeners, and community leaders convene to learn innovative practices, share ideas, and network with others! Register Today!



Reserve a 2017 CSA share of local veggies now! If you like local food, you'll love CSAs ~ they are like a subscription for the coming harvest. CSA members receive a weekly or bi-weekly assortment of seasonal vegetables delivered fresh from the farm.

Winter tends to be when farmers sell shares and eventually, they run out. To find farms with CSAs near you, click below for our list of members. Simply find a farm with CSA drop sites near you and sign up directly with the farmer.

Happy eating and send a few pictures of your farm shares someday! Click here for our list of Farm Members with CSAs.




Sign and post the CT NOFA Farmer's Pledge at your farm stand or business so customers know you're using the most ecologically sound farming practices. Plus, your farm will be list on CT NOFA so new customers can find you! To get started, review the Farmer's Pledge, sign it, and send it in!
