Farmington, CT has long been an agricultural town and the Hein family has been part of that for the last 200 years. In 2019 David Hein was injured and has been unable to continue farming. The farming torch was passed to Farmington Farm Truck in October of 2020 and they now own the farm and continue to grow on this historic piece of agricultural land. Jennifer Villa, the owner of the Farm Truck, wanted to recognize David Hein, his wife Martha and the Hein family for their agricultural contributions and their farming legacy.
In 2020, Farmington Farm Truck sold a very special holiday ornament and the last of the Hein Farm popping corn with all proceeds going towards the creation of an agricultural scholarship.
A fund was established for an annual agriculture scholarship to be awarded to a Farmington High School student interested in pursuing agriculture as a career.
$1,000 will be awarded in June of 2021 to a student selected by the scholarship review committee.
