farm-at-stratford“This grant will help continue our work of keeping what was the Pirhalla property as a working community farm,” said Rep. Terry Backer, who also serves as executive director and soundkeeper of Soundkeeper, Inc. “What was once a fallow tract of land now produces locally harvested food for Stratford residents.”

The Farm at Stratford is a Soundkeeper managed sustainability initiative on land that was deeded to Stratford on the condition that the town uses it for agricultural purposes. Currently, there are over 100 fruit trees on the property.
