Cafe

Cafe
Our cafe has been a popular breakfast spot since 2015. It is very casual, like eating at grandmas; mixed matched plates, family style sittings, and you get what is on the menu! We know we aren't for everyone, and that is ok with us. We want folks to come in, sit, visit with family, or make new friends. Dining is inside or during mild weather, on our porch in full view of our animals and the rolling landscape of trees. We do not specialize in dietary restrictions (there are great places in town for that) but there is something "made to order" for everyone. That being said, don't come here in a rush. We have 1 chef and food is made to order therefore you may have a wait. "Good food takes time" and we appreciate your patience. We utilize what we grow and other local farms for what we put on the menu. Come, sit, and enjoy the time you have with us.
We will offer lunch seasonally and can cater any event. For more information please email us at: clarkfarmevents@gmail.com

The Orchard

The Orchard
Throughout the growing season, we welcome senior groups, preschool classes, school groups, and other organizations for an educational tour of Clark Farms. Organized groups of at least twenty people can enjoy our beautiful farm and learn something about how food and crops are produced and handled, farming/growing methods, what affects weather have on farmers, and how our pollinators play a key role in food production!

Our tours include educational information suited to the interest and age of the group. We know, from years of experience what appeals to kids and how to make their visit both fun and educational.

All farm tour reservations must be made in advance. Please contact our team at Clarkfarm29@att.net to schedule your fun learning experience.

Thank you

Goodyear Farms is a third generation family farm. After WWI, Henry Goodyear came to America from Germany and started a dairy farm. He began growing vegetables and flowers along with his daughter, Grace Ann. After his death, the cows were sold and Grace along with her son Allen took over the operation growing and selling their produce and flowers locally at the farm stand and at many farmers markets and the Hartford regional market. In 1996 Allen and Becky put up a greenhouse and grew 1000 mums; “just to see how things would go”. The mums sold out in two weekends, thus the beginning of their operation.

Since the “mum experiment” they have installed 5 more greenhouses and expanded the operation. Growing over 3000 hanging baskets, 600 patio planters, 4000 geraniums, 10,000 mums and an assortment of annuals, vegetable starts, herbs and various container plants, the business has flourished. Plants are sold retail and wholesale from April-June and late September-October.

Plants and vegetable starts are grown using the IPM method of farming, as is our other farm; Clark Farms at Bushy Hill Orchard. We feel that currently the IPM method of farming is the safest and most sustainable method for conventional farming there is. We not only use LESS herbicide and pesticide but also use beneficial bugs and ornamentals to keep pests out of our houses. We believe strongly in sustainability, the environment, and spending less money on very expensive chemicals. We attend many continuing education classes all over the northeast and mid Atlantic states to keep up with the current most effective farming techniques.

At the greenhouses you will still see Grace along with Becky’s parents; Sandy and Sonny hard at work. Zachary also helps out, filling pots, transplanting, and restocking. Please consider visiting any one of our farms. As local farmers we appreciate your patronage and support.
