Mission

The mission of buyCTgrown is to bring Connecticut's 4,000 farms and their various offerings - from ripe-to-perfection fruits and vegetables to wholesome meats, dairy and seafood; from sweet honey and maple syrup to delicious wines and locally-sourced dining; from hundreds of varieties of plants and shrubs to Christmas trees and wreaths - all closer to you, and in doing so, support local agricultural enterprises and contribute to the health and viability of Connecticut's rural economy.
