Cameron Family Farm


Welcome to the Cameron Family Farm here in East Haddam Connecticut!  We are a small but growing family farm with our own hatchery, poultry processing, and produce serving the local Connecticut market.  We specialize in breeding and hatching chickens (and turkeys) to provide great healthy local chicks, chickens, pullets, cockerels, broilers, layers, turkeys, and poults.  Our primary produce is sweet corn and fall pumpkins though we do maintain a market garden for a small but wide variety of additional produce so check back often to see what's available!

This is a most increadibly late website update ever, I unfortunately just noticed as we prepare to open for the coming season. We are currently closed, we closed early for the season after the hurricane due to damage we received.

We will reopen in early February after our first hatch of the season.  Poultry processing is currently closed until fall of 2013.

Sundays are processing days

Well its getting that time of year again!  Everyone is busy picking their harvest and poultry is no exception!  I just wanted to let everyone know we are closed on Sundays for processing.  Please do not show up on Sundays without an appointment.  We cannot interupt processing to handle walk in customers for sanitation reasons. 

The processing schedule is filling up fast, Septemeber is almost full already!  Please contact us as soon as possible if you would like to schedule processing for this month!

Credit Cards & Pumpkins!

Wanted to let everyone know we now accept regular credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover) payments as well as PayPal & Google Checkout.  Google Checkout is available for web orders only Credit Cards and PayPal are availiable for use anywhere!  Farm store, farmers market, deliveries, almost anywhere (I get a cell signal lol)!

Also wanted to share this picture of our farm truck loaded down with hay for our next round of Pumpkin transplanting.  I saw this in an online video and decided to give it a whirl this year.  Turns out the hey helps supress weeds as well as provide a soft bed for the pumpkins to grow on and help prevent discoleration and mishapen / flat spots.  Well see in the fall!

Showin some tractor

Just figured I would post a picture of my tractor since it happens to be one of my favorite farm "toys".  Its a 1973 Case 444 Hydraulic tractor.

It has a Kohler 14HP single cylinder air cooled engine, 3 point hitch, and Hydraulic PTO for rear implements.  These machines never ceas to amaze me with their capabilities.  I've had a lot of lawn and garden tractors from the 60's models to the newer cheap-o units.  Nothing has come close to the Case in terms of work power.

One of my favorite attachments is the tiller, its almost 4' wide and can till forward or reverse with the flip of a lever.  Does great breaking up tough soil!
