Northern Connecticut Organic Farm // Easton, CT
The northern Connecticut site is being re-envisioned to grow crops as it once did. This time as a working organic farm. The master plan considers operations and management of wildlife. The plan incorporates buildings for operations and agricultural areas. A river divides the site; south of the river, and easily accessed from the frontage road, is the main access and operations area. Operations facilities include a processing building, shipping and receiving areas, maintenance and tool storage, as well as locations for composting. The area north of the river is characteristically more agricultural; proposed crops include fruit trees, berries, and perennial vegetables.
In developing the plan for the new farm, Land Morphology researched the best crops available for flavor, yield, disease resistance, and production capacity. The plan also incorporates innovative approaches to managing the crops.
