Deerfield Farm

Durham, Connecticut

Deerfield Farm is set in the beautiful rolling hills of Durham, Connecticut. This growing business started as our families 4-H project and hobby 34 years ago. Prior to that farming was the way of life for the Naples family of Durham. In 2004 Deerfield Farm spread its feet and grew into a full time business. The present location on the corner of Parmelee Hill Road and Pent Road is town-owned open space. The land and barn are leased from the Town of Durham. In spring of 2005 the building of the new barn was done and we started the installation of our milking system, tie stalls, and barn cleaner. Fencing went up and the cows arrived in late spring of 2005. This pretty piece of farmland once farmed by the late Tony Caltibiano was again alive with agriculture. We harvest our own hay and the cows graze the rolling hills through the warm months. Deerfield Farm started by shipping all of our milk to a large scale processing plant. In December of 2005 we started bottling our own milk and selling it from the farm. Now all of the milk we produce is bottled at the farm or made into yogurt, chocolate milk, mocha coffee milk or soft cheese in our own state-certified processing room on premises. Deerfield Farm products are sold at the farm, Perk On Main and at the Durham Farmers’ Market. Deerfield Farm welcomes visitors and groups for field trips.
