Charles "Peter" Merrill, Owner

 

Peter's first introduction to livestock started when he was 4 years old and he received his first lambs as an Easter gift at our farm in Suffield, CT. Peter wears many hats and provides a significant amount of marketing, general business and IT support for the farm business. He also serves as one of our most valuable farm hands, helping to build fence, move dirt and rock, mow, tend to new lambs, work the farm stand or handle any other task that may come along.

 

Friends, Family & Community

 

Sweethaven Farm & Flowers® also does not fail to recognize the benefit of the generous support and insights of long-time farmers and friends within and outside of the community. We are forever greatful for their continued involvement and influence on the success of our operation.
