Although not Certified Organic, our Greenhouse Grown Tomatoes, Herbs & Vegetables have been grown chemically free without the use of fungicides or pesticides thanks to an IPM (Integrated Pest Management Program) developed in cooperation with the Uconn Agricultural Department. Featuring timely releases of beneficial insects for pest control & advanced environmental controls for disease prevention, our IPM has eliminated the need for chemical sprays, a goal March Farm has been working towards for the past Five Years!
Specializing in our own home grown fruits & vegetables, The March Farm store features fresh Connecticut grown produce in season, fresh baked products from our farm bakery and specialty items from some of the region's top food vendors.
