Thompson Street Farm LLC and Bednarz Farm 2017 Cooperative CSA
Who we are:
Thompson Street Farm LLC:
Brenda Sullivan is the owner of Thompson Street Farm LLC and is CT’s first SPIN Farm (Small Plot Intensive Farm). The farm is on 1.3 acres in South Glastonbury Connecticut and grows small leafy greens, herbs and small vegetables in 22 raised beds and in various types of containers. In addition to growing leafy greens, Brenda also grows shiitake mushrooms and wine cap mushrooms.
Brenda also specializes in growing micro-greens, which she has sold to restaurants, caterers and at Farmers Markets.
Thompson Street Farm is a Pledge Farm through CT-NOFA (Northeast Organic Farmers Association), uses no chemicals and/or pesticides and follows the growing guidelines for organic growers.
Gordon Bednarz, a 4th generation farmer in Glastonbury, CT, has a ++32-acre farm that produces primarily organic and some conventionally grown products. Tomatoes, peppers, summer squash, winter squash, eggplant, kale, and greens are grown USDA organically unless otherwise stated. Sweet corn and strawberries are only grown conventionally.
