About Us:

Hale Hill Tree Farm in Portland, CT is the inspiration location where Ric Hosley, Founder of Hale Hill BioFuels, embarked on an unexpected journey; a journey which began in 2005 while seated on his tractor wondering what kind of world he would leave his children.

As the tractor puffed a gray black smoke, Ric knew all too well that today's pollution, energy resource depletion, energy insecurity and climate change would be theirs to bear unless real change was made.

Out of smoke grew fire and a passion to make a difference. After testing biodiesel blends in his own fleet of trucks and farm equipment, Ric began distributing biodiesel blended fuel to homeowners, businesses and municipalities throughout Connecticut.
