Valley Falls Farm
Valley Falls Farm, located on seven scenic acres of open pasture, provides beautiful vistas for artists and photographers. In 2005 Valley Falls Farm was designated a “Local Historic Property” by the Historic Commission of the Town of Vernon.
Located on the corner of Bolton Road and Valley Falls Road in Vernon, Valley Falls Farm includes a historic 1850s farmhouse and six farm outbuildings. The property is owned by the Friends of Valley Falls. Organized in 1972 as a private non-profit 501(c)(3), the Friends is a volunteer organization with the following mission: “Responsible stewardship of the Valley Falls Farm and Valley Falls Park.”
To save Valley Falls Farm from developers, the Friends purchased the seven acres, farmhouse and outbuildings in 2001 with a State of Connecticut grant, a $100,000 grant from the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving, Town of Vernon funding, and local contributors.
Valley Falls Park is owned by the Town of Vernon and is located across from Valley Falls Farm. The Friends work in partnership with the Town to improve and retain the park’s beauty and protect its natural habitats.
