The Northeast Organic Farming Association of Connecticut's mission is to ensure the growth and viability of organic agriculture, organic food, and organic land care in Connecticut. We envision a healthy, organic Connecticut founded on ecologically, socially and economically just principles. In addition to our food-based initiatives, CT NOFA also runs the NOFA Organic Land Care program to train the next generation of organic landscapers, land managers, and conservationists.

If you like local food, you'll love CSAs ~ they are like a subscription for the coming harvest. CSA members receive a weekly or bi-weekly assortment of seasonal vegetables delivered fresh from the farm. Later Winter tends to be when farmers sell shares and eventually, they run out. To find farms with CSAs near you, click below for our list of members. Simply find a farm with CSA drop sites near you and sign up directly with the farmer.
