In addition to our full time staff in the Farm Market, Bakery and Greenhouses, three generations of the Sam Mazza Family presently work on a day to day basis keeping things running smoothly on our 350 acre Colchester farm. Father, Sam Mazza, daughters, Laurie Mazza Bombard, Melissa Mazza, Cheryl Mazza Patterson, Theresa Mazza Anthony and grand daughter Melanie Bombard, along with Laurie's husband Gary Bombard, are the backbones of the family farm. Other Mazza family members work during the summer and at special events as needed.
The Sam Mazza Family farmed and operated a General Store over on Mallets Bay Avenue which opened for business in 1935 selling groceries, vegetables, and a real meat counter operated by Sam Mazza, Sr. who was also the butcher. In 1969 Sam Jr. and his wife Annette started their own farm on property adjacent to his father's land fronting on Lavigne Road at the present site of the Farm Market and Greenhouses. At that time the farm had a 450 foot chicken house and raised vegetables for sale on a wholesale basis. Due to health reasons the poultry business was discontinued in 1988 and the first small greenhouse and retail store opened. The in-house, full service Bakery was added in 1992 and Frank Peters was hired on as the baker and has been firing up the ovens on a daily basis ever since.
