White Gate Farm specializes in fresh organic produce, poultry, eggs, and flowers. Situated in Southeastern Connecticut on 100 acres of lovely New England landscape, it is a great destination for shopping at our farm stand, visiting the animals and seeing a small family farm that above all values the health of its customers and the environment.
At the Farm Stand
Available at our Farm Stand Thursdays only 10 am to 1 pm: Eggs!
Happy New Year Everyone!
While most of us were enjoying some down time over the holidays, the laying hens were getting their minds around going back to work. We have plenty of eggs -- so many that we'd like you to come get them (in unlimited amounts) on Thursdays from 10 am to 1 pm. The Thursday egg-buying window is it for now. The full farm stand will open on Saturdays only in late February.
There is special New Year pricing ($85 each) for three exciting cooking classes plus dinner with Chef Tami Grooney -- so please take a look under "Farm Classes."
Valentine's Farm to Table Dinner, hosted by Farmers Kent and Fred and prepared by Farm Chef Amelia Lord, will be February 18 at 6 pm. Menu: Winter Citrus Salad with Seared Scallops; Pumpkin Soup; Duck Breast with Persian Rice and Roasted Beets; and Rose Cake with Cardamom Creme Anglaise. The BYOB dinner is $90 + tax, with tip included.
Kids Classes: Emily Florentino's classes are a sensation! Typically they include a farm activity (harvesting something or visiting the chickens), creating two or three healthy delicious things (beet brownies are a favorite), a craft and a game. Children have several creations + recipes to take home. Classes last 2 hours and cost $48 per child. BACK TO SCHOOL PACKAGE: Buy 5 classes for $198, redeemable within 1 year. The next possible kids' class times are the following: February 20 and February 25 2 to 4 pm. If you would like to sign up for either of these, please email Emily at email@example.com. We need at least 5 children to schedule a class, at which time you can pay online. Classes are $48 per child.
PS. A note about WEDDINGS: Although, let's face it, this farm would be the perfect venue .... we currently do not have permission from the Town to host weddings or in fact any dinners for more than 50 people, and no amplified outdoor music whatsoever. We are confident that this will change some day, but for now we are turning down all large or even medium sized wedding opportunities.
