Family Farm

Groton Center Farms is a family privately owned facility. We give the  best care to our happy free-range animals, feeding them only the highest  quality of food. The farm is home to our farm raised chickens, sheep,  goats, and cows. Several honeybee colonies gather nectar from the wild  flowering plants and produce sweet clover honey that is harvested twice a  year. We also grow a variety of produce including apples, peaches,  rhubarb, and blueberries.

Hens

We hatch our own chicks, using a state-of-the-art Brinsea laboratory  incubator that is equipped with an automatic egg turning cradle,  humidity control and exact temperature levels that imitate the  conditions of a natural environment. The chicks dine on non-medicated  chick feed. The docile chickens happily run free range. They are always  energetic after a restful sleep. We turn the lights off at night so the  chickens don’t have the increased stress of laying 24/7. This way, they  have the freedom to lay when they want. White eggs are from white  chickens and brown eggs are from dark chickens, and both reside here at  Groton Center Farms. The eggs are gathered daily so they are always  fresh.

Apples

The apple orchard is mainly Macintosh and Cortland apples, however there  are several red delicious and yellow delicious apple trees in the mix.  Macintosh apples have a great taste for snacking and Cortland apples are  great for cooking and baking. The apples are usually harvested in late  September and early October.

Blueberries

Groton Center Farms is proud to provide you with freshly picked  blueberries when they are in season, usually starting in July. The  blue­berry patch is not sprayed with any chemi­cals to ensure a natural  crop. So enjoy these blueberries and their many health benefits. These  little berries are jam-packed with in­credible nutrients and health  promoting ben­efits. Blueberries protect against macular de­generation,  ovarian cancer and colon cancer. The fruit promotes gastrointestinal  health and protects the brain from oxidative stress. All research proves  that this fruit has pro­found health benefits.

Honeybees

Local honey is the result of the bees collecting nectar in a radius of  2-3 miles. The happy bees, who are busy producing honey, are born right  here on the farm. They enjoy living in 25 different colonies and produce  over 1000 pounds of honey. Our bees collect nectar from a variety of  sources including our own apple, peach and blueberry blossoms; there are  also acres of clover and wildflower. The honey combs are collected from  the hives twice a year during the late spring and early fall. The combs  are then spun, releasing the honey and cold filtered before bottling.  Honey is a natural sweetener with health benefits.

Animals

We give the best care to our happy free-range animals, feeding them only  the highest quality of food. Right now, the farm is home to our own  farm raised chickens, sheep, goats, and cows.
