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 the Farm Stand, beginning February 6:
- Butternut Squash
- Potatoes: Yukon Golds, Red skinned and White Kennebecs
- Sweet potatoes

JOB OPENING: In the spirit of the New Year, we are embracing change at the top. Specifically, our Farm Managers Erica and Will are following their bliss back to California. Please spread the word that we have an opening for one or two people at the farm. Farm Manager Position (Word Doc)
KIDS' COOKING CLASS: On Presidents' Day, February 15, Emily Florentino is offering a KIDS' COOKING CLASS from 1 to 3 pm. This is a mixed-age group (5 to 12 year olds) featuring a dizzying agenda of cooking healthy and delicious food (beet brownies are a popular item), visiting laying chickens or picking greens in the greenhouse, making crafts, and developing enthusiasm for healthy eating. Food allergies welcome with advance notice. To pay online, click "Farm Classes."
ZONING HEARING: We are busy perfecting the Inn at White Gate Farm -- slated to open in May -- and planning fun and educational classes for next season. But first, we will petition the Zoning Commission of East Lyme for a passel of permits on Thursday February 18 at 7:30 pm. If you'd like information about what we're requesting and/or would like to come support us, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are excited about making next year even better. Just so you know, I am lobbying for LAMBS!
We hope to see you soon.
