Laurel Glen Farm has a long family history of farming. John Rogowski came to the United States in the early 1900s with big dreams for his family and future. After working in a coal mine in Pennsylvania, he decided on a whim to try his hand in agriculture. He started Laurel Glen Farm with 100 acres providing fresh dairy products to the local area. In the 1970s, dairy production ceased due to the competition from supermarkets. In the 1980’s, second-generation farmer Peter Rogowski and his brother Alexander kept the farm alive by raising beef and growing hay. Finally, in 2013, Randy Rogowski took the reins on his family’s farm and converted it to a mixed vegetable operation. Now with 20 acres, Randy, Victoria and their team are committed to keeping the movement alive by providing fresh produce to the community.
Come out to see Victoria and Randy and support their efforts. They host their farm store at 247 Waverly Road in Shelton, Connecticut which is open May through December, Monday through Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday from 9:00 a.m to 6:00 p.m. Remember to ring the bell when you leave to thank a farmer! You will also find them at the Trumbull, Monroe and Shelton Farmers’ Markets weekly. Laurel Glen farm also has a very successful 250 member CSA vegetable subscription business, so sign up early if you can.
