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
Fresh Juices custom-made on the spot from the Old Lyme Juice Company
Storage Carrots & Beets
Farm to Hearth Bread

Many more pastries!
The farm stand is now open Saturdays from 9 to 5, with fresh spring greens, pastries and soups from the kitchen, quiche, pizza and more! Carolann Patterson of The Lyme Juice Company is on hand making fresh juices. Kids' juices are a break-even price of only $5!
Everytime Eggs is still on! You are welcome to come buy eggs Monday through Friday from 9 to 5. Please come to the SIDE DOOR behind the farm stand and bring exact change/check for $7 per dozen. We are so grateful when you remember to bring back your egg boxes!
On the horizon are Cooking classes featuring Mexican food and Plant-based menus; a Forage and Feast event; Canning classes and Dinners At the Farm. You can buy tickets to many of these under "Farm Classes."
Laura Jarvis of Pure Possibilities returns with a women's day-long retreat May 13. E-mail her at email@example.com. Dinners At the Farm prepared by Jonathan Rapp and his crew from River Tavern will be here August 9 to 13. See www.dinnersatthefarm.com for info and tickets.
Kids Classes: Emily Florentino's classes are a sensation! Typically they include a farm activity (collecting eggs, say), 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, and often then wish to cook for their families! Next possibility is May 27 from 2 to 4. Email us if you're interested and we will try to gather at least 5 children.
We hope to see you soon!
We have hired an Assistant Farmer -- Matt Shea from Niantic. A big hooray! Still have two spots for Kitchen & Hospitality Interns and one for a Farming Intern. Internships and Assistant Farmer Position (PDF)>
PS. A note about WEDDINGS: Although 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.
