Closed for the season
We are now closed for the season. We will open up for a couple days around Valentines Day in February.
The farm is back open this weekend!
After being closed this past weekend for the Litchfield County 4-H Fair, the farm will be back open! The farm store is stocked with all of our homemade products and locally produced products from other small businesses.
Head back to the barnyard to visit with our goats and their babies. Our farm hands will set you up with cuddling with one of the babies and your heart will melt. Our super social dairy calves are ready to get some head scratches. The weather is supposed to be beautiful as the recent heat wave finally broke!
The address to the farm is 99 Bates Rock Rd Southbury, CT.
The farm will be open on Saturday August 21st from 11-3. With the impending hurricane Henri heading straight for New England we will be closed on Sunday August 22nd to brace for the storm and to keep the animals safe.
Yoga at the farm
We are so excited to announce we will be bringing back “yoga at the farm”! Blue Lotus Yoga and Guardians Farm have teamed up to bring you several sessions in August and September.
Classes will be held in the barnyard among the gazing eyes of our goats, their kids and our dairy calves. As the farm is waking up our morning classes will enjoy a slow all level session of vinyasa yoga. As the day winds down and the sun disappears over the trees the sky over the farm explodes in color. Our evening sessions will take place under mother nature’s beautiful canvas and you will fall into a state of relaxation.
Yoga sessions will include your pass to the barnyard so after the morning session and prior to the evening sessions you will be able to soak in the attention of your barnyard friends.
As always the farm stand will be open on weekends for your shopping pleasure. We will open up the farm stand specially for our evening sessions to enjoy afterwards.
We support two amazing non-profits who's mission is to assist police K-9's from across the United States. K-9's United assists K-9 Teams by providing much needed equipment and training. The equipment they provide ranges from vehicle inserts and heat alarms to keep canines safe while in the cruiser to kennels for the home and ballistic vests.
Brady's K-9 Fund was found by an amazing eight year old in Ohio and has donated hundreds of ballistic vests to K-9's across the U.S. Brady's vest of choice is the LOF Defence Streetfighter vest. This vest is designed to allow the canine to wear the vest for their entire shift. The Streetfighter vest was the vest that Anouke wore during her career as a police dog prior to her retirement.
$2 from the sale of each Anouke gives thanks Fundraiser Bar is donated to K9's United.
$2 from the sale of each bag of our Fresh Roasted Coffee is donated to Brady's K9 Fund.
It couldn't be easier to help us support two amazing non-profits who assist Police Dogs just like Anouke!
The herd has grown!
This past weekend we brought home a new addition to the farm. Welcome Lucy, a two year old bred Holstein heifer to the farm! Lucy came form a farm in upstate Connecticut and is already a wonderful addition to the herd. Lucy is due to have a calf in February and will be helping us work toward our goal of becoming a micro dairy. Back in the 1800's and early 1900's our farm was a dairy with several cows in the operation and over two hundred acres of land. The property is much smaller now but the remnants of the dairy operation are still there. We plan on restoring what we can while still modernizing the dairy operation to conform to all the current dairy regulations. Currently our herd of four consists of Holsteins but we are planning on adding other breeds of cows. Our goal is to have the dairy up and running by February so we can bring the community some local fresh milk from our cows and from our goats as well.
