Located in Connecticut's "Last Green Valley", Bigelow Brook Farm was founded in 2002 when a 55 acre farm annex was purchased by a family member. The original farm has been owned by the same family since the late 1800's and is one of the oldest continuously running dairy farms in New England.
The farmland borders along a section of the Yale-Myers Forest, which covers 7,840 acres and is managed by the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies. It also borders part of the Natchaug State forest and is within walking distance of the Nipmuck and Natchaug trails (AKA "blue blaze trail"), hiking trails that span hundreds of miles throughout Connecticut. The majority of the land was placed into an open-space plan to help preserve the rural character of the region. The existing fields produce corn, alfalfa, and timothy for dairy farming while selected hardwoods are timbered for lumber and firewood.
