We've heard some rumors that they are not going to open this year. We drove by today and they are closed up tight but its still early. The field around the stand were planted though. Anybody have any news. They always had great corn throughout the summer.

    Oh, I hope not, this is one of my most favorite farms!! I'm hoping they are still not open because there is not yet much to harvest. Please keep us posted if you hear anything.

      I drive by there all the time and they usually do not open this early in the season. Since they planted their fields on Addison I would assume they will open when thye have produce. Interestingly there is a sign located on their back property advertising the property. It is in a very odd location off Eastern Boulevard and is way back from the road. I am not sure if it is still there or what it is for. Jay

        They are opened but with limited produce and flowers. Once corn and other veggies bgin to come I am sure they wil be fully open. Jay

          Oh good! I was worried they would be closed, that would have been a shame. I always get my corn from them, though I am doing a CSA this year with a different local farm so I will really be cutting down on my Gutt visits.

            Thanks, I was just thinking this morning I should take a drive by and see what's out. Mels, where are you doing your CSA? Beckett?

              I am doing the CSA through Deercrest Farm in Glastonbury (on Hebron Ave near the Hebron town line).

                    So far I am very happy with the CSA variety, they are changing it up a bit from week to week.

                      I forgot to mention that you are correct geminigirl- this is Deercrest's first year of doing the CSA.

                I saw some corn there when I drove by earlier today. Not sure what else they have. Still early in the season though. Jay
