Wreaths and Christmas Decorations at Our Stand

We make our own wreaths from native materials gathered here at the farm.
Visitors to our stand, and at the Wooster Square Farmers Market in New Haven, can now buy fresh wreaths, made at the farm from a wide variety of materials gathered on the property.

Look to this Day...

“Look to this day for it is life, the very life of life. In its brief course lie all the verities and realities of your existence. The bliss of growth, the glory of action, the splendor of beauty... For yesterday is but a dream and tomorrow is only a vision.  But today well-lived, makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well therefore to this day.”  - Kalidasa (sanskrit)

Autumn in New England

Pictures from over the years of Barberry Hill Farm support the BBC's premise that New England in Autumn is one of Earth's Greatest Spectacles

“[One of] three of the most seasonally changeable landscapes on earth...,  New England is the stage for the most incredible colour change... when the vivid greens of summer give way to the golds and reds of autumn.”
