A Brief History
Townline Farm is a newly re-established, privately owned farm on the scenic Baldwin Road in Woodbridge, CT.
Beginning in 1660, the Baldwin family purchased 640 acres of land from Chief Towtanimo of the Paugussett Tribe. This land was farmed by the Baldwins for centuries until the Hitchcock family purchased the land in 1947, using the land for crops, hay and milking dairy cows. The land then continued to be farmed by the Lockyer family in the 1980s, who raised Hereford beef cattle for several years.
For the past few decades, the hay fields have been farmed and maintained by the Hine Family of Field View Farm, a neighboring farm in Orange.
In 2021, the land was purchased by Cristian and became what is now known as Townline Farm. We have been working hard to bring the land back to its former glory by removing invasive plants from fields and wooded pasture land, growing vegetables, tapping the many maple trees on the property and remediating the pastures for our pasture raised beef cattle. We have also have a small farm stand and fall corn maze for the community to enjoy. Stay tuned for more events throughout the year.
We are excited to see what the future holds for the farm and hope you are too!
