Welcome to East Village Farm, LLC. We are a small family owned farm nestled in the White Hills section of Shelton, Ct. The farm was established in May 1998 by Bob and Darlene Mingrone. We started this journey when we bought our first four lambs from a local shepherdess and started raising sheep, llamas, alpacas, angora rabbits and chickens.
Today we produce vegetables grown to organic standards, fresh brown eggs, handcrafted soaps, handwoven scarves and blankets, beeswax candles and handspun, hand dyed yarn from our flock of animals. Our farm and products have been featured in the local newspaper.
We produce high quality handcrafted soaps that are made in small batches using natural ingredients so they are very gentle and excellent for all skin types.
There are 36 fabulous fragrances.
Please go to photo gallery to view selection.
$5.50 per bar.
Our handspun and hand dyed yarns come from our flock of animals. The raw fiber is washed, carded, dyed and spun into uniquely textured yarns.
$18-$24 per skein.
Handrolled beeswax candles made with cotton wicks are all natural, non-polluting, non-allergenic and have a honey-sweet aroma. When burned properly , they are smokeless and dripless. They come in a variety of colors.
$9.00 per pair.
Handwoven crib size blankets (approximately 34" x 54") are made from 100% soft cotton yarn. A perfect gift for a newborn.
