Colchester CT - Your Guide to Our Local Farms

Farming is at the heart of Colchester's history since the town's founding in 1698.  Today, the farms working our fertile lands have a valuable role in contributing to the rural character and quality of life here in Colchester. 

Colchester farms provide scenic vistas, preserve open space and wildlife habitat, protect wetlands that filter drinking water, provide food security by maintaining the capacity of local food production, and contribute to our local economy.

You will find a diverse farming community within our 49-square mile municipality.  Our farming community provides access to many products, including fresh eggs, award-winning artisanal cheeses and wine, vegetables and fruits, honey, hops, locally brewed beer, plants of all kinds including Christmas trees, and farm-raised meat and poultry.  Local equestrian farms offer riding lessons, boarding, and horse breeding.

You can easily visit several farms in one day as you drive along very scenic roads.  We welcome you to come explore our rich agricultural bounty.  Please support our hard-working local farmers.  They are committed to making highly productive use of their farmlands in Colchester.

Please contact us if you are a Colchester farmer selling products or services to the public and would like to be listed.
