Journeyperson Spolight: Roger and Isabelle Phillips


I don't want to jinx it, but dare I say it finally looks like spring is here to stay! After CT was welcomed into the season with a wintry mix of snow and sleet a few weeks ago, this bright and sunny Monday gives me hope that we are in the clear of any further reminder of the harsh winter. This sense of inspiration by nature is a great transition into.....  

Our final installment focusing on the recent round of Journeyperson takes us to central CT to Roger & Isabelle Phillips of Sub Edge Farm in Farmington!


Rodger and Isabelle Phillips run Sub Edge Farm, a family farm in Avon and Farmington, Conn. The couple leased the 289 acre farm in 2013 and are slowly working to reinvigorate their soils to produce healthy, delicious food for their local community. They grow four acres of vegetables, herbs and cut flowers and specialize in old fashioned, heirloom varieties. Through theirCSA program they are growing and fostering their community's connection to the land. Besides vegetables the Phillips' also are keeping a variety of pasture raised animals including cattle, sheep and goats. Committed to ecological farming techniques, they have applied for organic certification and have signed the CT NOFA Farmers' Pledge.

The Journeyperson program is funded by a grant from the National Institute for Food and Agriculture through the USDA Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program.
