OUR STORY

Re-knitting A Historic Litchfield Farm

Chanticleer Acres is located on the indigenous land of the Mohican people.

It is a historic farm built on top of a natural drumlin in the rolling Litchfield hills.

The farm house was built circa 1840 by Charles D. Wheeler a local farmer and politician. The English style barns date from roughly the same period. 

Beginning in the 1990's Harvey Hubbell V began to purchase and restore the farm repairing infrastructure and degraded soils. We maintain a commitment to using permaculture design and regenerative practices to care for and steward the land while seeking to build our community into one that is thoughtful and educated on the food we eat.
