We are primarily a Community Supported Agriculture Farm (also called a CSA or Subscription Vegetable Farming) with annual memberships available. Planting begins in April and continues throughout summer, ensuring a continuous supply of fresh high-quality vegetables. Clatter Valley Farm also raises our own beef and chicken to order. Farm fresh eggs are available to CSA members and at our local Farmer's Market in Danbury, CT.
We raise over 15 acres of fruits and vegetables and to assure freshest quality, we pick or veggies daily. Weeds are cultivated manually and we primarily use manure from our own compost for fertilizer. During summer months we harvest about fifty acres of hay for our own use as well as for sale to local farms.
We offer a large selection of your favorites including our own mouth-watering, sweet corn and conventional and heirloom tomatoes. Besides joining our CSA in New Milford , you can check out our new "prebuy" program, visit us at your local Farmer's Market in Danbury, CT which is open Saturdays mid-June through mid-October and our Farm Stand in New Milford. Additionally our produce has been available in various restaurants throughout Litchfield and Fairfield counties.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is for those committed members who pay a membership fee for a weekly supply of seasonal produce from our farm. This helps cover our operation costs for seed, fertilizer, fuel, equipment, labor, greenhouse supplies, etc. We plan and work throughout the year to provide our members with an equal shares of produce on a weekly basis. The share of produce is available for pick-up every week during the growing season.
