A New Hope Farm was started in 2014.
Currently, we farm two plots located in Litchfield county. One is our urban farm plot in Thomaston and the second is our market garden in Winsted.
Our main products are seasonal vegetables, herbs, and specialty produce.
Farmers Corey and John started A New Hope Farm at the tail end of 2014, along with a couple friends from college. During their time in the horticultural program at Naugatuck Valley Community College, they were inspired by permaculture, urban farming, the native plant and local food movement. In 2015, they started growing vegetable and native plants for home gardens in a small greenhouse. In 2017, after the departure of the other founding members, Corey and John decided to increase their focus on the farm, and began growing vegetables and herbs for a CSA program and local restaurants. Now in their fifth growing season the two farmers look forward to increasing the availability of local, sustainable produce in their community and building healthy ecosystems for generations to come.
