Acres Farm has been family owned and operated since the mid 1800's.
It started out as a fruit and poultry farm and later our ancestors trained horses
here that were used on horse drawn
carriages on the island of Bermuda.
In 1972, Ken Wood
inherited the farm and with his expertise of working with horses his
entire life, he began a horse and carriage service.
In 1986, his wife became a profound asset to
the business. Together, with their three children they have
their 250 year old farmhouse, barns and grounds and
host Wedding Ceremonies, Receptions, Birthday's, Anniversaries,
Holiday Parties and more.
Our wonderful selection of horse drawn carriages, wagons and unique
horse drawn Trolley continue to be for hire for Weddings and special
events throughout Connecticut. We would be happy to enhance your
