Welcome to the Acre of Independence, a small family-owned farm in Woodbury, Connecticut. The Acre of Independence is more than just a farm though, and this isn’t just another website (we promise!). This is about a former military family’s second act as farmers and homesteaders. Follow along with us as we try to make the most of everything we have. There will be pics and discussions about the farm and its activities of course. But we’ll also share helpful hints about gardening, beekeeping, managing poultry, preserving foods, and home brewing. And we’ll try to make it all approachable and a whole lot of fun, too. So welcome again to the Acre of Independence, we hope you stay around for awhile!
