Back to the Grinds Compost Program

We created our ‘Back to Grinds Program’ to make more efforts to reduce our food waste while giving back to our local community. We are looking for gardeners who would be interested in using our coffee grinds in their gardens. Coffee grinds are a useful resource in gardens because they are full of nitrogen and other nutrients that plants can utilize. The grinds also improve the soil itself. All of the coffee made at TFG is organic and sustainably sourced and could be an amazing addition to your garden. The coffee grinds come at no charge, and if interested all you have to do is:

1.  Fill out our form

2. Drop off a receptacle with a lid

3. Wait for us to let you know when it is ready for pick up!

"This place is amazing; they offer great breads, soups, lattes, coffee, and baked goods... The maple latte and chicken dumpling soup are amazing. I highly recommend checking this place out. Not to mention, it’s attached to a nursery and garden store but offers tons of different flowers and trees... Keep on THE GRIND!"

"Wow. The Farmer's Grind is amazing every time! Friendly staff, cutest atmosphere and, of course the best food! Great coffee, sammies that are greater than the sum of their parts, delicious ice cream, and carefully curated local baked goods, prepared foods, and produce. What more could you ask for? I seriously would eat here everyday. The photo doesn't do it justice."

Emily Goucher

"This country "coffee stand" is an absolute gem, serving the entire range of quality coffee selections supplemented with bakery shop quality cakes, muffins, and pastries. Owners Eric and Michele make the experience special with the delightful atmosphere they've created. You cannot do better for coffee, baked goods and prepared foods and produce. Two thumbs up!!"

"The Farmer's Grind is my favorite lunch spot in the New Canaan area! Their fresh sandwiches and salads are delicious, they have the best dark roast iced coffee, the s'mores bar is crave-worthy, and you never know what goodies you might find in their refrigerator or dessert case to take home. Oh and the staff is great! Highly highly recommend."
