Established In 2009, Fire Ring Farm is an NOFA recognized organic CSA farm located in Portland, Connecticut.
It sits on two and a half acres of land that used to be the Taylor Estate, home to St. Clements Castle, which overlooks the Connecticut River. Fire Ring Farm and the now Palmer Taylor Preserve managed by the Middlesex Landtrust are on historic land of the Wangunk and Quinnipiac first people.
At Fire Ring Farm we strive to be an inclusive, environmentally focused, and socially just organic farm. We strive to bring together people from the community to help them create a connection to where their food comes from. Food is medicine. Plants are medicine. We truly believe that we need to act locally and think globally. We welcome all walks of life and help them get connected to the soil. Water is life. Soil is life.

We are dedicated to growing tasty and nutritious produce using organic and sustainable methods of farming. We do not use synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides. We practice farming methods that do not deplete our natural resources of land and water. We rotate our crops, plant cover crops, apply organic compost, introduce beneficial insects, use mechanical and hand cultivation for weed control, utilize proper irrigation methods, consistently care for our soil, and grow seasonally!
