The bucolic northwest hills of Connecticut are the perfect location for Storybook Farm. Prize winning suri and silky fleeced llamas have been the main focus of the farm, but we've added to the farm's direction.
Storybook Farm is focused on the preservation of heritage breeds of livestock by adding them to the farm menagerie. We've joined The New England Livestock Alliance and the Heritage Breeds Conservancy work to save these breeds of livestock from extinction. Our beautiful Dominique chickens are free-ranged and are producing fabulous large brown eggs which we offer for sale. In the near future Belted Galloway cattle, fondly referred to as "Oreo cookie cows" will be raised for fresh grass-fed beef.
We are proud to have been awarded an NRCS grant for a high tunnel to be used to extend our growing season. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to be able to offer fresh, organically grown heirloom varieties of vegetables and fruits earlier in the summer and well into the fall season. Jams and jellies made from the farm's fruits and vegetables are offered for sale.
Even more exciting is the fact our own honeybees are now pollinating our fruits and vegetables! We expect to generate honey for sale this year too and are looking forward to offering it to those interested in the health benefits of local honey.
All natural homemade soaps are available for sale at the farm. We've got soaps scented to relax you, invigorate you, and even soaps to keep bugs at bay. If you are a hunter and look to mask your scent, try our Hunter's Soap. The hunters in our family love it!
If you are looking for a unique gift, Storybook Farm offers gift baskets of jams and jellies, handmade soaps, and honey. Choose your own unique combination and your unique gift will be created for you!
