Hi everyone,

Welcome to the Acre of Independence! We are a family-owned farm in Woodbury Connecticut. And while we’re small, we have BIG aspirations. We are a military family starting our second act, and are determined to transform our small homestead into a farm that delivers high quality, hard -to-find produce and other items to market.

Humble beginnings: our vegetables, June 2018.

We are starting small this season. We ¬†planted our fields with rare and heirloom varieties of tomatoes, greens, beets, squash, and cucumbers, and plan to hit the local farmers markets this summer. We’ll have fresh organic produce, as well as preserved foods, such as pickles and jams. We also established an apple orchard and planted several types of berry bushes this year as well.

In seasons to come we plan to expand the farm, and have more to offer our customers. Next spring we’ll establish a herd of dairy goats (watch for cheese and soap!) and our beehives should “bee” mature, so we’ll have fresh honey and beeswax ¬†available, too. And our produce offerings will only get better.

Our vision is to provide our customers high quality, hard-to-find farm fresh items at the most competitive prices around. And we are determined to enjoy ourselves as we do it!

But why come to this website? After all, company websites are a dime a dozen, right? Well, stay tuned. We spent nearly 25 years as a military family moving every two years or so. We loved, it, but all the while we dreamed about starting our own farm. And now we are working our fields and living the life we’ve always talked about as we moved from post to post. For us, that is really exciting! If you check in every once in awhile, we will share our experiences and our knowledge, so that you can put it to practice in your own little homesteads. Maybe we can help you avoid some of our beginner’s mistakes, too.

Thanks for stopping by, and we hope to see you around!
