Greetings from Raluca and Ed at Shundahai Farm!
We are a small family farm of 5 acres established in 2009. We picked our name, Shundahai, from the Western Shoshone tribe, because we felt drawn to its meaning: “Peace and Harmony with all Creation.” It captures the spirit in which we try to farm and live. Thus, we do not use herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, artificial fertilizers, or any other synthetic chemicals to grow our food. Instead, we try to work with Nature, adopting gentle, sustainable practices that promote the health of the soil, plants, and all of us.
To affirm our beliefs, we have taken the Connecticut NOFA (Northeast Organic Farmers Association) Pledge, which clearly articulates our principles. You can read the pledge at our farm stand, or at the CT NOFA website.
This season, we plan to grow more than 45 different vegetable crops, plus a small selection of flowers.
Bold foods are in season now according to our Harvest Calendar. Call to find out exact availability. Every farm and every season are unique. Most farms are also residences. Unless Farmstand or Pick Your Own hours are noted, please be respectful and call ahead before going to the farm.
