Rock Maple Farm (Eastford, CT)
A few months ago, I began a search for a local farm that I could photograph as part of a project to help re-acquaint the general public with the importance of our local farms. Coming from a town where my family farm was the second to last to go extinct back in 1996 (Clark's Farm was the last truly active farm until they closed a few years ago), I am amazed at how many active farms there are in the central Connecticut area. One farm in particular, was brought to my attention. Rock Maple Farm, located in Eastford, CT, is run by a wonderful couple, Suzanne and Ken Buell, and their family. This gallery is a small window that allows you to gaze into a part of their daily work environment.

As part of this project, I will be selling signed, matted prints at the Coventry Regional Farmers' Market as part of their Sunday, July 17th "Graze Fest" event. I am also co-sponsoring this event as a show of support for all of our local farming community. 50% of all proceeds from the sale of these prints will be donated back to the Rock Maple Farm! I invite each of you to help join this project and become better educated on the benefits of supporting our local farms!
