There is also Browns Harvest in Windsor. The Brown family has been farming in Windsor, employing countless local young people who have become part of their family. So when lifelong patron of the farm Joe Ferolano received a life-saving kidney transplant 2 years ago, Brown's Harvest added LifeChoice Donor Services to the numerous charities they support. To encourage Connecticut residents to become organ, eye and tissue donors, Brown's Harvest is hosting The Power of a Pumpkin to Save a Life. This event will be happening on Saturday, September 26th and Sunday September 27th from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Get more information here.
