2016 FARM STORE UPDATE
Here at Robert Treat Farm, we take great pride in providing our customers with fresh, homegrown vegetables to sustain health and wellness. Being stewards of the land is truly a passion that we possess. We are committed to preserving and enhancing the bounty that our farmland can give. For this reason, in 2016 we are taking some of our land out of production so that we can enrich it by planting cover crops to improve soil health. As a result, in 2016 we will not be selling produce at the farm store but will be offering farm shares. We will also have a limited offering of produce at the farmers’ market held on Wednesdays, June 29 - Aug 31st from 3:30-6:30pm.
We will continue to carry gourmet foods, many of them local, such as pies, farmstead cheeses, yogurt, breads, honey, pasta and Connecticut milk in glass bottles in the farm store.
If you would like to sign up for a farm share please visit our ‘farm share’ page for more details. Please note that farm share spaces are limited and are on a first come, first serve basis.
Wander through our garden center, and you will find a great collection of interesting and unusual annuals, sought-after perennials, shrubbery and trees. You’ll notice all our pretty greenhouses filled with the things we grow for you to discover. Custom potting is a specialty of ours so you can get exactly what you want. If you don’t know what that might be, it doesn’t matter – we can help you choose something you'll love! Perhaps we can work to make something special – in your favorite color, or for a shady area, or even to attract beneficial insects and hummingbirds.
We take your garden success personally, because we are gardeners, too! Your garden will be blooming with all kinds of natural wonders because we have a wealth of knowledge – and the green thumbs to prove it! We will be only too happy to help you choose just the right things for your project. Whether it is a ceramic planter on a balcony or a whole landscape – every project deserves a little planning for the best results and having the right plant in the right place is a very good place to start. Maybe you’ll get inspired to plant an herb or vegetable garden this year but don’t know where to begin, or perhaps you would like to know how to prune the roses you are about to plant or how to dead-head your flowering annuals. Let us show you.
All of our gardening supplies are carefully selected for this area. You’ll find everything you will need – mulch, the proper fertilizer, grass seed, as well as whimsical statuary and ornaments, or an interesting birdbath for your feathered friends. If you are looking for the perfect gift, you might decide on a Robert Treat Farm Gift Certificate – they never expire and may be used to purchase anything we have for sale.
