Internship information
General Farm Description: Unbound Glory Farm is a small vegetable and flower farm located in a gorgeous location in the rolling hills of CT’s Quiet Corner (close to RI and MA). We follow Regenerative Agricultural practices, including no-till, cover-cropping, use of carbonaceous and living mulches, pollinator plantings, and more. We sell our produce through a CSA and local farmer’s market. In addition to the farm, we have a food truck and wood-burning pizza wagon that we use on weekends to highlight our produce while we serve seasonally-inspired food at local hot spots in our area. We love what we do and love sharing our passion for farming and food with others!
