The Burnap Brook CSA operates at Evergreen Farm in Andover, CT under the guidance of Ben Brewster, the resident head farmer. Featuring organic vegetables, flowers and berries the farm offers weekly pickups or delivery.
Find Evergreen Farm, 20 acres of awesome farm land and a magnificent stand of timber, including oak, maple and various ornamental plantings at 57 Hendee Road, just over the bridge a quarter mile from Andover Landscape on route 6 in Andover. Located on the Hop River with bottom land soil with enough tillable space to provide food for CSA members and a weekly farm stand from June through October. Land restored and maintained by Steve Witham formerly of Witham Nursery.
The farm connects with other private holdings along the river to make an informal wildlife refuge for many species of birds and animals including coyote, deer, bear, fox, and beaver.
This is our third season offering fresh picked, organic produce for CSA families and our farm stand. We take great pride in maintaing healthy soil, rotating crops and nurturing produce with timely organic practices. We have had great success the past two years with the only organic corn in the area, 15 varieties of tomatoes, many kinds of vigorous lettuces and greens, large and small pumpkins, sweet watermelons, 5 kinds of potatoes, onions, garlic, u pick flowers, and thirty other varieties of food and flowers. We will augment our strawberries and add rasberries for our members this year.
We have left room for a small multi purpose sports field for soccer, frisbee, touch football and other activities. There is a fun walking and biking trail and a swimming hole and barbcue area for family visits. We will host monthly events including farm to table meals, cookouts, hay rides, treasure hunts, camping and halloween activities. Sports teams can use our area for team building and augment their normal training with small field play and skill review. Call or text us at 603-996-1019 if you would like to explore having an event at Evergreen Farm. We have really easy access off of route 6 but great privacy for the garden, recreational events and riverside activities.
