We like to educate our customers as to where and how food is grown and try to make sure that everyone has access to good fresh food and produce.
Studio Farm, owned by Dick and Dot Wingate, is located on Rt. 49 in Voluntown and has 34 acres of land—6 acres are tillable and the remainder is woodland. Studio Farm has a farmstand during the summer and autumn months where you may purchase vegetables, eggs, and honey as well as homemade jellies, jams, and much more from our kitchen. (For large selection of products, please call us or find us at one of the farmers' markets.)
Stonyledge Farm is located at 107 Kuehn Road in Hopkinton, RI. All 103 acres of the farm are in North Stonington but you have to drive into Rhode Island to entire the driveway. The Wingates' daughter, Belinda, and her husband Ed Learned have owned Stonyledge Farm since 1992 and have watched their children grow up there. Stonyledge Farm has a lovely pond, stone walls throughout, but is mostly woodland. About 25 acres are cleared for pastures and gardens.
In February, 2007, Belinda and Ed were provided with the opportunity to purchase a vacant dairy farm located at 62 East Clarks Falls Road (the former Bill Farm). Valley View Farm came with a large dairy barn, several pastures, as well as a 23-acre field, 115 acres in total. Valley View has been written into our Organic Farm Plan as of February, 2007, and will be managed organically from now on. Valley View Farm is located in North Stonington, CT.
We are gearing up to begin small-scale dairy production at Valley View. We have repaired a leaky barn roof, planted corn, and are clearing brush from along the fence lines. Contact us for more information about where you can find our fresh milk and dairy products.
Our animals are at Stonyledge Farm and also Valley View Farm.
