Welcome to Walnut Ledge Farm!  

A little farm with a big view!


Walnut Ledge Farm is a CHEMICAL-FREE 14-acre family farm nestled into the rich farming community of South Glastonbury, CT.  WLF is owned and operated by Michael and Joanna Kamis, along with their two daughters.  Although we have owned (2005) and operating (2013) the farm for the last 11 years, our farm has been around for generations!  Some of our blueberry bushes have been calculated to be close to 100 years old!  We are the 1st farm in the State of Connecticut to be preserved by the Connecticut Farmland Trust.  We are also proud to be registered with the Connecticut Botanical Society with having some of the largest walnut and chestnut trees in the state.

With the largest crop being our pick-your-own Blueberries, we also have expanded our Garlic fields to over 10,000 bulbs a year.  Garlic also provides an early crop of garlic scapes.  These delicious "extras" can be sauteed to taste like asparagus, or blended for a yummy pesto.  Chestnuts are the 3rd largest crop we raise bringing in close to 1000 on a good year.  Competing with the squirrels can be our biggest harvest challenge.  We also have recently added Elderberries to our fields and we hope to start to a harvest for consumers starting in 2024!

We also have 3 hives of Honey Bees on the farm with hopes of expanding and producing a strong line of Honey and Beeswax products.  Beekeeping can be a challenge and has in recent years faced many new challenges.  Our aim is to bring more pollinators to the area instead of concentrating on harvesting honey.  But if we do, BONUS!

Through the years we have been striving to bring you quality products with zero use of any conventional pesticides, fungicides or herbicides.  As of now we have accomplished just that for the past 10 years.  We are working really hard to nurture our soils and plants to help create a healthy place for insects and wildlife while also creating and putting more nutrition into the soils for the plants so they can rely on what nature intended.  We have had some luck with some homemade fertilizers made up of sea kelp and compost teas.  We are happy to find success in this program and will continue this method for as long as we farm.  While we do things different, we also get different outcomes whether a slower growing season, or battling with our weeds.  We appreciate your patience and support as we go on this adventure to healthy living for you and for our family. 

We look forward to seeing you!
Season is Running 2 weeks early!
