Description

I am a young CT farmer with 4 years of experience working on an organic garlic and produce farm. My business partner Josh Capiga and I are founders of CT Garlic Company. We grow nutritious, pesticide-free German hardneck garlic boasting big cloves and flavor. Our garlic is a loyal friend in the kitchen, playing nicely with others in the recipe or roasted on its own.

In addition to being a farmer, I am a graphic designer, art director, and educator who maintains a creative design business. My design agency has has brought clarity to small businesses, non-profits, local food producers, educational institutions, museums, and arts/cultural organizations around the world. I've taught university-level courses and guest lectured on design and typography at Northeastern University, MassArt, and Boston University.

My business partner Josh and I are looking for at least 1-2 acres to lease to grow our operation. We are open to most of Connecticut but would prefer something in Hartford County.
