The Town of East Haddam is offering garden plots for lease to farms, businesses, individuals, or groups at 218 Mount Parnassus Road, the site of town-owned Open Space previously owned by the Harris family. This land is classified as having prime farmland soils and was once the site of a successful dairy farm. Assisted by a grant of $20,000 from the Connecticut Department of Agriculture, four acres of the site have been cleared and fenced. Leaseholders will agree to follow the ecologically sound and sustainable practices outlined in the CT Chapter of the Northeast Organic Farming Association Farmer’s Pledge. This year, the expected start to the growing season will be June 1.
