In 2006 Bill Sokol and Anita Kopchinski started Hidden Brook
Gardens, LLC, a certified organic farm, in Ledyard, CT. We
came to farming after working as chemists and have never looked
We specialize in fruit, vegetables and herbs and focus on heirloom varieties to encourage bio-diversity as well as excellent flavors. Our guiding philosophy is to be in balance with nature by enriching and continuously building the soil with organic compost and amendments. In 2011 our focus became ensuring the nutrient density of the vegetables/fruits we grow by feeding our soil to ensure trace elements, minerals and beneficial microorganisms are readily available. When you visit Hidden Brook Gardens you will observe the beautiful crops which are surrounded by an abundance of wild birds, bees, and other beneficial pollinators that make the farm their home as well.
As part of our Catholic faith, we came to realize that we do our part to promote the respect of each person's human dignity by providing access to nourishing food. Towards that end we have incorporated sharing of part of our harvest with those in need. We encourage you to get involved in your local soup kitchens/pantries or other areas of need that you feel called to help with. Together we can make a difference for good!
Bill and Anita are proponents of supplying high quality fruits, vegetables, herbs, seedlings, jams and jellies, etc. in season to the local community
