A family photo of the current generation who owns and operates Oxen Hill Farm

Oxen Hill Farm is a family owned and operated farm with land in both Suffield and East Granby, CT. The 28 acre Suffield farm has been in our family since the mid 1800s, when the ancestors of Carol (Biggerstaff) Griffin emigrated to the United States from Northern Ireland. The East Granby farm location that we use for the majority of our production was originally part of a royal grant of land from the King of England, awarded to Sgt. John Griffin in 1647. The 11th generation of the Griffin family is still now operating the farm.

What’s in a name? The origin of our story as Oxen Hill Farm

In this photo from 2010, Spike and Tony are be seen grazing their pasture in the distance behind the field which has since become our flower growing field.

Spike and Tony have since joined Betty and Billy in the afterlife, but we hope that they all are proud of the farm legacy we have created on their beautiful land.

Our family is proud to say our farm is a USDA Certified Organic vegetable farm and a non-certified flower farm that primarily serves our CSA customers, while also catering to local groceries, restaurants and farmers’ markets. Our overall business philosophy continues to be about family, faith, and fun. It is an honor to be a part of the rich cultural heritage of Connecticut agriculture.
