The Historic Farmstead Closes
In 1750, the history of this White Hills farm began with the town's noted Revolutionary leader, Major Agur Judson, followed by the Downs' family in the early 19th century and then to Stephen Beardsley in 1850; it is a history that continues forward towards its 275th Anniversary. With the passing of our beloved Guy Beardsley in 2021, many changes have become necessary. Guy's Eco-Garden is being closed by the fifth generation of the Beardsley family, Janelle Beardsley, and her husband, Ed Wittkofski. After forty years of Ed and Janelle have run into the fate of so many New England farms, the Sixth and Seventh Generations have moved to the Far ends of the Earth and will not be back to run the farm. Janelle and her brothers now have the difficult task of unwinding their branch of the family from ninety-three years of connection to the farm. The current farm will remain open until Saturday of Labor Day Weekend.
WE THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR POSITIVE THOUGHTS AND PATRONAGE OVER THE YEARS.

Lavender Croft is a beautiful addition to the White Hills, turning them purple in June and early July each year. This allows us to offer beautiful fresh cut and dried lavender bunches, dried lavender products and remarkable Lavender Essential Oil as well as Lavender Water.
The mission of our family-run farm is to provide, to grow and to produce the healthiest products available on the market. We are dedicated to instilling the love of nature and the return to traditional, historic life.
Our Master Gardener, Janelle Beardsley, is well known for her beautiful flower bouquets. She has developed a keen eye and sense of design in over 30 years' of experience growing and working with local varieties of cut and dried flowers. Whether it's mixing with conventional flowers or using exclusively our own farm flowers, she is happy to design for country style weddings and special events. She also takes custom orders for arrangements. Whether for a special day, to beautify your home, or to make a friend or family member smile, her fresh, locally grown bouquets will surely please. Because they are organic, they will add a lovely touch without introducing synthetic chemicals to your home environment.
Janelle also grows a wonderful selection of herbs that grow in our region. Fresh bunches are available at the farm, or at your request, while others are dried for her special culinary herb blends.
WELCOME, our farm in the beautiful White Hills section of Shelton, Connecticut. Our farm is a family owned and operated organic farm which has been farmed by the same family for six generations. Our farm is dedicated to providing healthy seedlings, food and beauty to you and your family.
