White Gate Farm

White Gate Farm

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.

Announcements

Happy Thanksgiving!

The farm stand -- now double in size -- is bursting with delicious gorgeous produce and mouth-watering pastries and other creations from the farm kitchen. IT WILL BE CLOSED THIS SATURDAY NOVEMBER 26.

Additionally, we have many HOLIDAY GIFTS for you to examine and buy: Heirloom gardening tools from the U.K., endorsed by the Royal Horticultural Society, White Gate Farm tote bags and aprons, pot holders and French jacquard tea towels emblazoned with recipes for Salade Nicoise or Ratatouille. We will continue on our Wednesday & Saturday schedule until December 21.

We hope you are enjoying

delicious pies today!  We will continue to offer mini-Pumpkin pies in the Farm Stand next week.


December 4 Ava Tyler leads a day long yoga retreat from 10:00 to 2:30. Email ava104@comcast.net for details. Download the Flyer (PDF)

Wednesday December 7 at 6 pm, Yvette Wollenberg will teach a Soups and Sauces class.  Details and sign-ups under Farm Classes.  

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:.


Saturdays 2 to 4:  11/26, 12/3, 12/10 & 12/17
Wednesdays 4 to 6: 11/30, 12/14, & 12/21

Please email me which date(s) you are interested in. We need a minimum of 5 children to run a class.

The flock of 145 laying hens has returned to their winter barn and pasture, and the lambs have gone to the other "greener pastures," and will return to the freezer in December.  They had such a healthy happy life that we count on them to be extra delicious.

   Be sure to plan a PICNIC while the warm days last.  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 chickens, check out the bee hives, and enjoy the farm!

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.
