Why Lockwood Farm at CT Agricultural Experiment Station is our Farm Hero

 

Each growing season Lockwood Farm, located at the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station in Hamden, donates its entire harvest to Connecticut Food Bank. Donating everything from acorn squash to zucchini, more than 102,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables have made it to the dinner plates of low-income Connecticut families over the last 10 years. It is through generous donors like Lockwood Farm that Connecticut Food Bank is able to increase the distribution of fresh produce which is often too expensive and is most lacking from the diets of people who struggle with hunger. We are grateful for our partnership with Lockwood Farm and value the dedication and generosity of its Farm Manager, Rich Cecerelli.
