Farm History

.Blue Jay Orchards is a picturesque 140 acre farm nestled in the quaint New England town of Bethel, Connecticut.  It is one of the very few remaining commercial orchards in Fairfield County,The farm's history as a modern orchard dates back to 1934 when Mr. Josephy brought a farm house and 50 acres from Elizabeth Weed.  The Weed family had owned the farm for many years. Over the next 50 years  the farm expanded from 50 acres  to it's current size 122 acresMr. Josephy also sold the land development rights to the State of Connecticut.  Blue Jay Orchards was the first farm to be preserved as farm land in the State.  Mr. Josephy owned the farm until its sale to the present owners, Paul and Mary Patterson, in 1985.   A large part of the Patterson's satisfaction with purchasing Blue Jay Orchards was that they were playing a part in preserving New England's heritage for future generations to enjoy
