Stone Acres Farm has been supporting local agriculture and the surrounding community of Stonington for over 200 years. Originally a thriving dairy farm in 1765, Stone Acres Farm has been in operation since before the Revolutionary War and provided its wares to the surrounding community during the steamship and railroad boom in the area. The stunning Manor house on the property is a shining example of late federal period Victorian architecture and was built by Dr. Charles Phelps in 1765. The house and property have been passed down for generations and is now owned by a group of investors who can link their lineage back to that of Dr. Phelps.

Beautiful farm, perfect flowers
I purchased farmer pick flower buckets for my backyard wedding during COVID19. The flowers were AMAZINGLY beautiful, fresh as can be (picked the morning I got them), well taken care of, and diverse in texture and color while still cohesive. I wanted a wildflower fairy garden feel -- Stone Acres flowers made it happen with beautiful product AND staff that are fun, responsive, and so kind. I cannot recommend them enough.Sent on 09/19/2020

Very, very disappointed.
We had to cancel our wedding because of uncertainty due to COVID. They said they were confident they could resell our date, discussed a refund on the phone, then decided to keep our money. Very, very upset and disappointed.Sent on 07/24/2020
