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.

Happy September All!
Behold summer abundance in the farm stand! Tomatoes have been exceptional this season, but the heirloom plants are almost finished. We have loads of potatoes, eggplants, leeks, huge heads of garlic, beets, onions, carrots and more -- Oh my! Anna is creating all kinds of delicacies in our kitchen, including SUMMER ROLLS with peanut sauce on Wednesdays and PIZZAS (beginning at noon) on Saturdays.
The farm house is starting to resemble a divine Bed & Breakfast, which will officially open in the Spring. For now we DO have lodging in the ice house on Lake Pattagansett. E-mail me for details!
We have scheduled two Farm to Table Dinners to take place in the large dining room: October 3 and November 7. (Currently these can be found under "Farm Classes" -- but soon will have their own category on this website!) Two exciting new classes (for adults) are on offer in the farm kitchen, as well as one outside -- "harvesting" your own chicken.
Classes for children age 5 to 12, led by Emily Florentino, have been super popular. Dates on the horizon are September 19, October 17, and October 24 from 2 to 4 pm. Each class is chock-a-block with food preparation, crafts, science experiments, visiting the laying hens, and discovering the fun and deliciousness of healthy eating. Class limit is 6 kids and costs $50 per child. Please e-mail me if you are interested in one or more of these dates, so we can sort out the age groups. Emily is available too for individual classes, either one-on-one or with an adult & child.
We hope to see you soon!
