Hytone Farm - Coventry, CT
Giovani Peracchio purchased 70 acres in Coventry in 1944 to grow fruits and vegetables with his son, Tony. They added a few milk cows to guarantee year-round income. Today, with over 260 Holstein milking cows, the fourth generation of Peracchios work Hytone Farm.
The Farmer’s Cow Mission Statement says, We believe in what we do—being good stewards of our precious agricultural heritage for future generations. The Peracchios’ land stewardship exemplifies this commitment.
Managing more than 800 acres, Hytone Farm has agreements with landowners in seven local towns to grow corn and grass silage. Keeping farmland productive is the most effective way to ensure it will be available for future generations.
Hytone Farm received Connecticut’s Dairy Farm of Distinction Award in acknowledgment for demonstrated land stewardship. The Peracchios plan to continue the Hytone Farm tradition of farming excellence for generations to come.
