Pillwillop Therapeutic Farm is the latest program of Community Counseling of Central Connecticut Inc. Our goal is to provide a safe place for people in the community to meet and share knowledge. While you can expect to receive the same high quality mental health services that Doc Warren and Community Counseling have been providing for years, this new venue gives the opportunity for so much more.
As funds allow, we will open up classroom space, community rooms for use by different programs, and we will be offering a diverse array of workshops ranging from clinical to social to art-based, spiritual, nature and farming to dance. We will be open to most any appropriate workshop that seeks a place.
Pillwillop Farm, as it was known until the end of 2011, has been a family run farm since the 1860s. It has had many incarnations. It has had animals, vegetable crops, timber and Christmas tree sales, as well as a host of other uses. Originally hundreds of acres, the farm is currently around 50 acres and hosts hard and soft woods, as well as a community garden and hiking trails. It has been the home of several local businesses over the years including the Sharp Shop, which sharpened most anything that had a blade.
