Marked early as farmland for its rich, deep red clay soil, Eddy Farm first took shape in the late 18th century when the land was purchased by Captain Martin Kellogg. Originally of Deerfield, MA, Kellogg was kidnapped as a child by Iroquois and taken along with his brother and sister to Canada where he lived among his captors for many years. Upon his release as a young adult, he arrived in Newington with a plan to build a school to assimilate Native American boys. Over the generations the farm changed hands many times, and its borders ebbed and flowed. They are proud to be the next generation to be stewards of this land rich in family lore.
