Willow and Jeremy met at the University of Connecticut and began farming together in 1994. Since that time they have grown their farm and family adding 3 children to their "#farmily"!
The first to join the Schulz farmily,
Olivia is an animal fanatic who loves to ride!
During the growing season her help has become invaluable. Early season Olivia helps with preparing the garden and transplanting. As the season progresses, she also helps with the harvesting. Olivia can most often be found at our farm stand or one of our markets!
During Covid Olivia took on the responsibility of her own market. On Saturday's during market season, she heads to the Brox for the JBLOC (James Baldwin Outdoor Learning Center) Farmers Market! Her favorite part of the market? Besides the great family feel of the community, she gets to bring fresh produce to a VERY underserved community.
In the fall of 2022 Olivia started her journey as a Plant Science major at The University of Connecticut. Please join us in rooting for happiness and success on her life's path!
Sandwiched between his sisters Aidan is the budding Apiarist of the farmily.
When he's not tending to his bees Aidan also helps in the garden and at the stand and markets. It was Aidan that found us a home at the Elephants Trunk Flea Market on Sunday's during our farming season.
Aidan's talent on the farm seems to lie in the mechanics. He is happiest when he's getting his hands dirty working on the tractors and equipment with Dad and Grandadddy!
The youngest of the farmily Anna is happiest surrounded by her animals!
Anna is an accomplished transplanter, she can even plant a row of tomatoes faster than most! Anna also loves helping at the farmstand and markets. While veggies are our bread and butter this little girl is a die hard fan of The Incredible Dr. Pol TV series and says she wants to be a Vet when she grows up. Only time will tell...
Grandaddy/Tractor Tom/Tommy Tomato
Retirement isn't retirement when your part of a farmily. Tom is always the first to step up when more hands are needed! He does anything and everything from planting and harvesting to farm and equipment repairs.... oh and quality control checks of the tomatoes of course!
Speaking of tomatoes, 2022 was the first year growing in our high tunnel. Tom immediately rose to the challenge, visiting other growers and watching YouTube videos on growing in a high tunnel. The first season was nothing short of spectacular. Way to go Tom!
