DELUCA FAMILY FARM
My name is Nick DeLuca and I am the owner and operator of DeLuca Family Farm LLC. My professional journey began in 2009 when I became a high school science teacher in Hartford, CT. In addition to starting out in education, I was also able to start my coaching career. Over the years, I developed a passion for both teaching, and coaching baseball and volleyball. After being in Hartford for several years I was fortunate to get an opportunity to teach and coach at East Hartford High School, where I currently work.
Being someone who likes to stay busy, and having summers off from teaching, I decided to work on my father’s farm in Watertown. During these summers, I learned the farming business and discovered a new passion, farming. I worked, learned from my father, and eventually met another mentor in Jim Futtner of Futtner’s Family Farm, LCC. Jim had been farming in East Hartford since he was seven years old, and was getting ready to retire. Although Jim was retiring, he wanted very much for his land to be farmed. So, in 2020, in collaboration with Jim, DeLuca Family Farm, LLC was born.
Since the start of my business, my passion for education and community involvement has grown. I have three simple goals. First, I am dedicated to providing local families, restaurants and grocers with the highest quality produce. Second, I strive to provide the type of customer service that all families and businesses deserve. And finally, I am committed to running my business with family, friends and former students.
