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
FARM STAND NOW OPEN WEDNESDAYS 9 TO 5 AND SATURDAYS 9 TO 5
- Kale Shoots -- buds and flowers -- like broccolini. These are tender and tasty. Sauté with olive oil, garlic and some sea salt. Delicious with in an omelette or frittata, or alongside chicken or in our braised greens & rice recipe. Our great growing methods and the cold temperatures have brought out the sweetness in this delicious vegetable.
- Organic, Pasture-raised multi-colored Eggs: an Abundance! 1 half dozen box: $3.50; 2 boxes $6.00! We will be happy to re-use your White Gate Farm egg boxes. Limit 3 dozen per family.
- Roasting chickens from the freezer: Our own organic, pasture-raised chickens weigh between 3 and 5 lbs and sell for $5.50 per lb. They were raised & processed by us very humanely here on the farm. Limit 4 per family.
- Strawberry Jam
- Strawberry Rhubarb Jam
- Tomato Sauce
- Organic Coffee from Ashlawn Farm
Please plan to visit the baby chicks inside and admire the laying hens outside in their pasture.
Happy News: We have hired a Couple of Farmers, Erica Gassman and Will Nelson.
Thanks to all who offered commiseration and help.
The farm stand is now open on our new schedule -- Wed & Sat, both days 9 to 5, but primarily selling only Eggs, Roasting Chickens, Tomato sauce, Caponata and Jams. We have LOADS of our famous eggs and plenty of frozen chickens. We won't be "manning" the stand in the usual way, so please pay with cash or check. Eggs cost $3.50 for 1/2 dozen and $6.00 for 1 dozen. Chickens are $5.50 per lb.
May 7 we will open as before with produce, prepared foods, bread, cheese and so forth plus you can pay with your credit card.
We invite you to visit the baby chicks during our farm stand hours, with this proviso: They need to stay very warm. it is essential to close the door quickly and the interior plastic as well, or they could die. Less dramatically, our electric bill could kill US. Please do not touch them.
We look forward to seeing you!
