Happy Autumn! Please check our Volunteer, Farm Market, and Farm Event pages for seasonal updates.

About Fairgate Farm

Fairgate Farm is a volunteer-driven urban farm nestled within the Vita Health & Wellness District on the West Side of Stamford, Connecticut. Our mission is to increase access to locally grown produce and to strengthen the community by celebrating healthy food through gardening, educational and harvest-related initiatives.

The Farm serves as an outdoor classroom for numerous schools, nonprofit organizations and community members to share skills, learn about nature and build community. Throughout the growing season, Fairgate Farm hosts a Farm Market and multiple workshops focused on environmental stewardship and nutritional awareness. Each year our volunteers harvest and distribute over 8,000 pounds of fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers to benefit the community. One-third of Farm produce is donated to hunger-relief partner agencies while our volunteers and Farm Market patrons enjoy the remaining bounty.

Fall Update for Farm Volunteers

Although the main farm season has come to an end, farm work will continue through the fall and winter in a smaller capacity.

Farmer Pete will still be in and out of the farm throughout most of the week so if you are interested in volunteering, please reach out to him by email at pnovajosky@charteroakcommunities.org or call/text him at 203-940-2305 to arrange a time.
