“I love Cobblestone Farm because knowing my food is grown and harvested with love fills my soul. The vegetables, eggs and poultry are fabulous - fresh and super tasty with a wide selection of veggies. To me the farm is so much more than the food. It is the passion of a family I love, a chance to get my hands in the dirt, and a constant reminder of the hard work that goes into each and every vegetable, regardless of where it comes from.” - Cindi J., Mansfield Center . . . Come meet Diane from Cobblestone Farm & other local farmers at our Friends & Farmers Family Fun Night this Friday at the Mansfield Community Center!

Thanks to a little maker-matchmaking (😂) by @kristen.eghty I met @littlehousebrew and picked up these *awesome* bags from a #ctfarm ....new bags will be coming soon(ish)! I'm so excited about these, because not only are they completely different from all of the other bag designs we have, they are #ctgrown and #madeinct ❤❤❤. . . . #ctmaker #marketbag #reusablebags #repurposed #feedbag #feedbagtotes #marketbags #upcycled #malt #maltedgrains #beer #localbrewery at East Haddam, Connecticut

It's important to be persistent! We don't trim our Heuchera until spring, because the tough #foliage keeps its rich #color even through the snow. This shade loving #perennial comes in a rainbow of jewel tones, from green to purple and red, with airy flowers in the summer that pollinators adore. In spring, carefully clip out any brown leaves around the crown. #pollinatorgarden #plants #plantlife #plantlove #instaleaf #instaplant #leaf #heuchera #coralbells #rust #orange #foliageplant #ctgrown #DeepRiver #Connecticut #gardenlife Variety shown is 'Georgia Peach'.

Winter blooming #houseplants bring an amazing amount of cheer to these long, cold days. Our new #scarlet Schlumbergera will be available in limited quantities at the CT Flower & Garden Show next weekend, so be sure to visit us early. Native to coastal Brazil, Christmas Cactus are true #cacti, but prefer only bright light and more humid environments. To induce #flowering, grow your #cactus in a room that only receives natural light, away from lamps or streetlights, to ensure at least 12 hours of continuous darkness at night. #succulent #houseplant #winterflowers #redflowers #red #plants #plantlife #instaplant #instaflower #inbloom #schlumbergera #christmascactus #indoorgarden #flora #fleur #ctgrown

We #love getting our hands in the #soil! Did you know that we actually grow our plants in a soil-less potting media? True "soil" (as found naturally in the garden) contains sand, silt, and clay in various proportions, while our media contains none of those things. We grow in a custom blend of sphagnam peat moss, composted bark chips, perlite, and limestone. Potting #soils are designed to be used in containers, and have better moisture control and pore/root space than garden soils, in addition to being lighter weight. Acer sells several bagged blends for your potting needs, including small bags and a custom alpine/succulent mix. #playinthedirt #plantlife #gardenlife #didyouknow #heart #ctgrown #dirt #DeepRiver #Connecticut #plantlove

The first sentence of this tasty farmhouse #saison is words we should all live by. “Work requires rest.” So simple, so powerful. How can we be our best in what we do if we do not slow down and take care of ourselves too. We need to be at the top of our game to bring the best of ourselves to our daily lives and, sometimes, this requires us to take a break and chill out. This simple line was what we read on our first can of beer on our first vacation in almost 4 years in Louisville, KY. So, yes, we will rest now and be ready to kick start the season and get back to work when we return. Mindful, self-assured, rested, and ready to take on the year. #vacation #roadtrip #laterct #getaway #atimeforrest #slowdown #rest #work #repeat #bemindfulofyourneeds #louisville #beer #bourbon . . . #offfarm #winterfun #farmlife #youngfarmers #smallfarm #wallingford #wallingfordct #ctfarms #ctgrown #ct

Come peel back the layers at an evening with “The Seed Huntress,” Sefra Alexandra, who discusses her quest to revitalize the Southport Globe Onion, a regional staple heirloom that brought wealth and prominence to our agricultural area. A Cornell-educated ethnobotanist and Greens Farms resident, Sefra is on a perennial expedition to breathe new life into both the regional onion culture and create renewed excitement about planting and stewarding the Southport Globe Onion variety (she will bring some heirloom seeds to share with attendees!) in gardens in and around Westport. Let's get our hands on the land this season, for a community effort to welcome this heirloom back to its native soils for the first time in 130 years!
