Upper Pond practices sustainable agriculture on Sill Lane in Old Lyme, and on Beaver Brook Road in Lyme, Connecticut. We grow seasonal vegetables and fruits on our six acre plot of land adjacent to Upper Mill Pond, and on our 5 acre plot located at New Mercies Farm in Lyme.
We use ecologically based agricultural practices to manage our farm holistically. Top priorities are enhancing biodiversity, soil health and structure.
Upper Pond Farm recycles nutrients, encourages composting on and off farm, and builds resilient systems. We use preventative methods by building systems that are plant positive to avoid synthetic chemical treatment of disease and pests. When your soil is healthy, your plants are healthy.
Upper Pond Farm invests in Lyme-Old Lyme's community. We feed our community directly. We educate our community by connecting them with the earth and food system
Upper Pond Farm donates produce to the Shore Line Soup Kitchen.
