Connecticut's Community Farms

What is a Community Farm?

  • A not-for-profit, publicly accessible farm that conducts educational programming for the public.
  • A center providing opportunities for meaningful work, learning, service and self-development.
  • A local source of healthful produce, and a demonstration site for local food systems

How can community farms serve farmland conservation purposes?

  • Community farms represent a financially viable approach for managing open space.
  • A community farm provides partners including land trusts and municipal conservation commissions with valuable platforms to reach their constituencies and promote active public engagement with preserved land.
If maintaining open space is a liability for your organization, a community farm can turn that space into a prized asset. For more information, see the resources listed below.
