Bug Hill Farm

Sam and Charlotte of Bug Hill Farm in their garden

 

Sam first spied Charlotte (love at first sight) when she visited his garden to pick basil, and he proposed two years later while they were picking blueberries knee-deep in water on a lakeshore. Thirty years (and four grown children) on, as their organic vegetable garden outgrew their land in eastern Massachusetts, they turned their vision and ambition west, dreaming of creating a rural homestead. After three years of looking for that perfect piece of farmland and feeling a little discouraged, a changing perspective (are we really going to carve a homestead out of raw wilderness at our ages?) and a bit of serendipity (an email from a friend-of-a-friend of the farm extolling the virtues of black currant cordial) led them to Bug Hill. They stopped by, and it was love at first sight, all over again.

At Bug Hill Farm, they grow all their berries (currants, raspberries, blueberries, gooseberries, elderberries and aronia) using organic and regenerative practices that benefit the taste and the nutrient value of the fruit and the health of the land.
