Stony Brook Valley Farm was founded in Granby, Massachusetts in 2008. Patrick Bensen apprenticed at Red Fire Farm in 2007. Staying on as a manager, he got permission to keep a flock of hens in some of the farm’s unused fields. Patrick began working on his own full-time in late 2010, and in early 2012 was able to purchase a farm 1/4 mile up the street from his former employer. Red Fire Farm currently grows vegetables in some of Stony Brook Valley Farm’s fields. Patrick continues to work to produce the highest quality foods for himself and his family, neighbors, and customers.
