Steve Munno Award

Congratulations to Steve Munno, Massaro Community Farm of Woodbridge, CT manager and CT NOFA president, for the 2019 outstanding young farmer award presented by the Connecticut Agricultural Information Council!

We are excited to have an organic farmer and leader in the CT organic community recognized for their work in agriculture.

Connecticut NOFA is proud to participate in a partnership with Massachusetts, New Jersey and Vermont NOFAs in launching a three year study of no-till organic farming across 12 organic farms in the Northeast.  Here in Connecticut our research partners are:

Assawaga Farm,

Massaro Community Farm

SubEdge Farm

We chose our partner farmers (Alex Carpenter and Yoko Takemura of Assawaga, Steve Munno of Massaro Farm, and Rodger Philips of Sub Edge Farm) because they are each engaged in certified organic no-till and low-till work on their farms, and we wanted to represent a small, midsize, and larger scale farm working on the same challenge through differing approaches.  Visit our Carbon Farming Initiatives Page to follow the research as it unfolds and learn more about soil health and the power of organic agriculture in climate change resilience.
