DIRT ROAD FARM
DIRT ROAD FARM is a small farm on a dirt road in Weston, Connecticut, owned and operated by farmer-chef Phoebe Cole-Smith and her husband, former NHL executive Mike Smith.The pair produce wood-fired maple syrup from their 350-tap stand of sugar maples, keep honeybees and laying chickens, and grow herbs, vegetables and fruit on their 5 1/2 rocky, hilly acres.
In addition to providing Phoebe’s cooking business, PICNIC, with Dirt Road Farm produce and goods, value to the farm business is added through the sale of eggs, honey, and maple syrup, as well as pickles and preserves. Beyond what Dirt Road Farm provides for Phoebe’s cooking, she also sources directly from nearby farms, farmers’ markets, and purveyors for locally grown, raised and artisanal goods.
DIRT ROAD FARM was designated a farm in 2011 by the Town of Weston, Connecticut.
