Where

The Hickories is a local organic farm in Ridgefield, CT that has been in the Brewster Family for 76 years. The farm provides vegetables, fruits, flowers, wool, meat, and other farm products for the community and surrounding area through their CSA and Farmstand as well as local markets and restaurants. The farm’s fruits and vegetables are certified organic under the Bay State Organic/ USDA National Organic Program, meaning they are free of synthetic pesticides and synthetic fertilizer. Our chickens, pigs, and sheep are free-range and are raised on the farm’s organic pastures.

It’s that time! 2019 CSA sign up has begun.

CSA stands for community supported agriculture, which is a model of local agriculture where shareholders pledge to support our local farm. Once a week, you and your family come to the farm and pick up your share of the harvest. You’ll get a variety of whatever is being picked, the food changing as the seasons change.

    Q What is a CSA?

    CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, which is a model of local agriculture where shareholders (families or individuals) pledge to support our local farm. For the duration of the seasonal share (spring, summer or fall), CSA members come to The Hickories farm once a week to pick up their share of the harvest. You'll get a variety of whatever is being grown and freshly-picked, since the food and flowers change with the seasons. In return for your CSA pledge and farm support, members: (1) are the first to receive notifications about and access to farm programs, tours, special events and workshops; (2) receive free admission or reduced pricing at the aforementioned; (3) have reserved access to the farm on pick-your-own crop days which includes strawberries, blueberries, cherry tomatoes, peas and more; and (4) get connected to the rest of the Hickories community and it's farmers. With over 150 different varieties of organic fruits, vegetables, and flowers, there is something for everyone each week at The Hickories.
