The "farm," located at 197 Scott Hill Rd in Lebanon CT, is often opened to local groups for tours to learn about making maple syrup. The renovation of our "Sugar Shack" and wood-fired evaporator are complete! 100% Connecticut Maple Syrup, Vanilla Bean Infused, Coffee Infused, Ginger Infused, and Cinnamon Infused Maple Syrup are now available on the farm. Our Farm Store is now completed and showcases products from other small farmers and producers. Our store is open Saturdays from 10-4 through the end of March. If you would like to visit at other times, please contact us to set something up.

Our family consists of a christian dad and mom who are raised their five children, all girls, in the small farm lifestyle. Three of our girls have now "flown the nest" and are having great success out in the "real world".
Our girls range in age from 23 down to 16 years old. All still have some part in the chores that come with living on a farm.
Abigail, the oldest, is the sole proprietor of the farm. She has an Associate's Degree in Small Business and Entrepreneurial Studies from Three Rivers Community College. Abby and Justin married in August of 2015 and their first child (Ava Rachel) arrived in March 2017!!
Nathalie completed high school two years early, completed a year in Restaurant Management at Three Rivers Community College and has her Associates degree in Culinary Arts from Bob Jones University. Nathalie is the genius behind our infused syrups! Nat's future plans include launching her own custom creations bakery very soon!
Hannah is a nanny and currently resides in Kansas. Hannah helps by spreading the word about our farm events using social media.
Rachel continues to be homeschooled through high school and will graduate this coming June. Rachel has taken over the chicken coop and expanded the flock with blue, green, and brown egg layers. Farm fresh eggs are for sale in the farm store! Rachel has also started a feral cat rescue.
Samantha is pursuing a yak project this year in 4-H and FFA. Samantha has chosen public school for high school and is loving it. Samantha and Rachel are our main helpers for collecting and hauling the sap from the trees to the barn.
Sam and Amy are 4-H leaders of a dairy goat club that has expanded to include chickens, dogs, sheep, turtles, lizards, and rabbits! The Great Goats and More 4-H club is quite active in the community and can be found participating in many local events throughout the year. Public Speaking and Community Service projects are strongly encouraged and supported in the club. Contact us if you would like more information about your local 4h opportunities.
