Organic Farmer Helps Local Farm Plow Ahead

Jul 1st, 2010 | By | Category: Farm

Annie Farrell, an expert in organic farming who manages the 75-acre Millstone Farm in Wilton, came to Fairfield Wednesday night to help residents create an organic teaching farm in Fairfield.

While the local farm planned by Pamela Jones and about a dozen other residents is only an acre, Farrell and Jones share the same goal – growing food locally, which Jones said is fresher, healthier and provides more security than relying on food in supermarkets. Connecticut, if it were cut off from receiving food, would have only about a two-day supply, Jones said.
