About Us
All year round since 2004, we -- Bill and Liz Farrell -- work the dirt at Fat Stone Farm in Lyme, Connecticut. Sure, it’s frozen dirt in the winter, but that’s the time for maple sugaring!

Our unique farm products are made with heritage New England ingredients, sometimes with an updated twist. If we can't grow it, we won't put it in our products. That's why we say "eat food from the dirt, not the lab".

We named our farm “Fat Stone” partly to poke fun at ourselves, partly to make people remember us, and partly to remind us to laugh sometimes! Liz drew the stone walls depicted on our labels from the walls we built on the property – entirely with our very own fat stones. Some of these walls are simply extensions of the old field walls built by previous farmers.

Regenerative farming can improve ourselves and our communities

After starting our farm and growing our food for a few seasons, we felt better, stronger, and more resilient. We extend this commitment to you, our customers, by only growing and producing the best foods that we ourselves eat every day.

Small business -- Big commitment

During much of the year, there are 3 of us making, bottling, labelling, and sending farm products to you. Some months we are fortunate to spread the work out between more of us. Meet the crew:
