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 Summer Everyone!
The farm stand is bursting with delicious gorgeous produce, flowers, and mouth-watering pastries and other creations from the farm kitchen. Tomatoes and watermelon are getting underway.
Saturday July 30 we will be open at the farm as always but also at the Florence Griswold Museum from 9 to 3 as part of the Old Lyme Midsummer Festival (see www.oldlymemidsummerfestival.com).
August 26 and 27 are two Italian Farm Dinners with identical menus, so take your pick! Info and pre-paying at Farm to Table Dinners at left. Price for either BYOB evening is $90 plus tax. Limit is 24 people.
We are now re-stocked with our Pastured Organic Chickens. Pick one up at the farm stand from the freezer. Each little roaster is about 4.5 lbs and costs $5.50/lb.
Kids' Classes: Emily Florentino's classes are a sensation! She will schedule them throughout the summer. Typically they include a farm activity (harvesting something or visiting lambs or 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.
Next Proposed dates are: July 27, July 30, August 3 and August 6, all from 2 to 4 pm. If your child would like to come to any of these, please email me the date(s) that would work. Once we've formed up classes I'll enable the online PayPal option.
The flock of 138 laying hens is in the movable chicken palace in the back field, and 9 lambs are in their pasture and love to be fed and even patted through the fence. The turkeys are growing and baby chicks arrived July 20.
Be sure to plan a PICNIC this summer. There is seating on the terrace under the umbrellas or you can grab a picnic blanket from the farm stand. You are welcome to tour the grounds, visit the animals and enjoy the farm!
