CT Farm Map and Website
 
 
Visit Connecticut's farms, courtesy of a new Connecticut Farm Map and Website. Tour your state’s destination farms using a colored, full-scale road map lists by category, 207 farm businesses with detailed directions to their establishments and brief descriptions of their business. It includes Agritourism, Farmers' Markets, Christmas trees, Pick-Your-Own, Orchards, Maple Syrup and many others. The map also contains information on Connecticut agricultural statistics, Farmers' Markets, Cooperative Extension offices and Department of Agriculture contacts. This map is both entertaining and educational and points to the diversity of our state's agriculture and of its importance as a destination attraction. The map is distributed at Extension offices, town halls, libraries, tourism centers and farm stands.

A collaborative effort, the Connecticut Department of Agriculture, the lead agency, along with the Connecticut Department of Transportation, and the University of Connecticut College of Agriculture and Natural Resources all contributed time and talent to the design and publication of the map. The USDA Rural Business Service supported this Connecticut Farm Map. Funds from a Rural Business Enterprise Grant helped print the map.
