Upper Pond Farm
New Mercies Farm
Old Lyme and Lyme, Connecticut

One business, two farms. Both Upper Pond Farm in Old Lyme and New Mercies Farm in Lyme are operated as one business under the name of Upper Pond Farm. We will be living at the New Mercies Farm location and farming both locations. That way, we'll be able to have on-farm pick-up at New Mercies, grow our membership, and provide more wholesome food for our community. With greenhouses, we have tomatoes and "microGreens" during the off season. With new acreage tilled, we have expanded production for our CSA customers and clients including Foodworks, Coffee's Country Market, Tri-Town Foods, Ashlawn Farms Cafe, Oceanhouse, La Belle Aurore and the Lyme and Chester Farmers Markets.
