CT NOFA is turning 30 this year, so join us in a kickoff to celebrate the next 30 years of great food, fun, and community! Come meet, socialize and bond with your local farmers and Organic Land Care Professionals with a farm tour, live music, and talk by Bill Duesing, our Executive Director.

We are holding block parties on three farms across Connecticut throughout the summer, so don't miss this opportunity to learn more about the great food and events Connecticut has to offer. Our first event took place in Fairfield County and the second in New London County.




If you missed the first two, the final Block Party is planned for September 15th.
