Stonington Kelp Co is owned and operated by Suzie and Jay (and hopefully one day, their three kids). The vision for the farm began in 2016. The Pawcatuck based couple partnered with Greenwave, a non-profit dedicated to support the next generation of ocean farmers. In 2017, their farm was up and running with a hope grow a native sea vegetable that could be shared with their family and their community while doing something great for the environment.
Suzie and Jay farm their kelp in the winter months (November-April) each year and are excited to bring this sustainable food to a dinner plate near you. The farm is based in fisher’s island sound and the office is located on the Pawcatuck River in Pawcatuck, CT. You can see the farming process in action by following them on instagram.
