Connecting Curriculum with Nature: Fire Ring Farm

Sunday June 30


Established in 2009, Fire Ring Farm is a community-supported farm in Portland, CT, recognized by the Northeast Organic Farming Association (NOFA). It sits on roughly 4 acres of land overlooking the Connecticut River and is surrounded by the Palmer Taylor Preserve managed by the Middlesex Land Trust. Both Fire Ring Farm and Palmer Taylor Preserve are on the original land of the Wangunk and Quinnipiac first people. At Fire Ring Farm, we hold the conviction that food and plants possess healing properties, while water and soil are the essence of life itself. This belief fuels our commitment to being an all-encompassing, environmentally conscious, and socially equitable organic farm. Our mission is to unite members of the local community and foster a profound connection to the origins of their sustenance while focusing on sustainability. Our organization warmly welcomes individuals from all walks of life and facilitates their connection to the soil. We believe our actions should have a local impact while considering global implications.
