Woodstock Grown

Woodstock's open space provides clean water and air, wildlife habitat, scenic vistas, and a special quality of life. At the same, time, open space places minimal demands on public resources. Supporting Woodstock farmers and others in agricultural enterprises helps them stay in business, and benefits the community. Woodstock's farms, and dairy farms in particular, consist of extensive acreage in open space. We can help maintain the rural nature of the town, and the availability of locally grown products by purchasing Woodstock Grown items, including fruits, vegetables, cider, Christmas trees, greenhouse and nursery products, corn silage and hay.

There are about 82 farmer's markets in CT. To request a brochure that lists addresses, days and hours, by county, send a self-addressed stamped business-size envelope to CT DAG, Farmer's Market Brochure, 165 Capitol Avenue, Hartford CT 06106, or see the CT Department of Agriculture website, including their CT Farm Map.   You can also get a brochure listing Pick Your Own locations at www.CTGrown.gov (click on publications at the top of the page.) Check out the new Riverfront Pavilion Farmer's Market on 18 Kennedy Drive in Putnam, CT.

Below is a list of some of the Woodstock farm-related businesses and products they sell. All Woodstock phone numbers have a (860) area code.
