Maywood is a private estate located in the southern tip of Litchfield County, Connecticut. Classic architecture combined with several traditional gardens grace the property and its panoramic view of the Berkshire foothills.
The gardens immediately surrounding the main residence are formally structured, and lead out to more naturalized gardens and woodland trails. Various production gardens are integrated into the forty-acre landscape, providing fresh cut flowers, vegetables, and field crops which are available for sale at the Bridgewater Village Store, Bridgewater, CT.
Environmentally Sound Practices
In addition to maintaining the manicured grounds, our staff prioritizes good stewardship of the land and its agricultural purposes. Environmentally sound practices to encourage wildlife and compliment the pictorial setting include:
- IPM (Integrated Pest Management) programs
- Berry producing plantings to attract birds of a variety of species
- Bluebird trail
Maywood is a member of Audubon International and is the first property in Connecticut to become a member of the Rainforest Alliance's Smart Wood Program for forestry management. The estate traditionally follows the Northeast Organic Farmers Association's ( NOFA), guidelines.
