Welcome to Windham County
Farm Bureau
 
Windham County Farm Bureau is an active association of more than 400 members who advocate on behalf of farming issues with legislators, and educate consumers about the benefits of supporting local farming. 
 
Windham County, bordering Massachusetts to the north and Rhode Island to the east, tops Connecticut in milk production with more than 40 active dairy farms. Livestock and calves, plus poultry and eggs are also important farm enterprises in Windham County. Farm businesses are also involved in greenhouse and nursery stock, vegetables, wine grapes, and specialty crops like maple syrup and honey production.
 
More than 25,000 acres alone in Windham County are dedicated to cropland growing hay and corn -- just a portion of the 60,000 acres operated by close to 600 Windham County farms. (Source: 2008 Agricultural Statistics Service, USDA)
