The Future of Farming CT

Over the past 6 months, we have been hard at work putting together a platform that truly captures the changes we need to see in Connecticut agriculture in order to succeed as new and beginning farmers. 

This fall, the New CT Farmer Alliance is pleased to share our policy platform, Future of Farming CT. 

We believe in the transformative power of food and land. We are passionate about building a more resilient local food system, fighting climate change, and working towards racial equity. In order to effectively do this, we need state legislators and institutions to take bold action on our priorities.

ABOUT US

The New CT Farmer Alliance is a statewide network of farmers and growers. By bringing young, new and emerging farmers together it is our intent to identify and help develop support systems to nurture a successful and diverse agricultural landscape for our state. We may have the word "New" in our name, but farmers of all ages and experience levels are encouraged to join!

We are an all volunteer network. All you have to do to be a part of it is show up, speak up, share, and make friends!

Join us today! There are no fees or dues, and no secret password.

Fall Shindig

Every year, NCTFA hosts a fall and spring shindig for our members. The shindigs are a great way to get to know other CT farmers, chat about all things agriculture, and celebrate our community. 

This year's fall shindig will be on Saturday, November 12, 2-5pm. Muddy Roots Farm, a diversified veggie and livestock farm in Wallingford, CT will be our host.

There will be delicious food from Sanctuary Kitchen New Haven, free beer from Front Porch Brewing and New England Brewing Company, lawn games, and a raffle!

Kids are welcome! We'll offer childcare at the event if there's enough demand for it.
