CT: Thompson: Morning Bekons Farm

A few years ago I was enamored by a LLama named Bolt whom I met at a farm in Goshen, CT in 2019. I didn’t know much about llamas and somehow thought they only lived in some far off land – many of us who grew up in NYC feel that way. Researching the quietContinue reading “CT: Thompson: Morning Bekons Farm”

CT: New London: Colchester: Cato Corner Farm

With part of my family from France, cheese and wine tastings is one of my favorite pastimes. While I can’t seem to get myself to France, tasting the delicious farm fresh cheeses at Cato Corner in Colchester takes me away. I was so busy eating I didn’t get a chance to snap a picture ofContinue reading “CT: New London: Colchester: Cato Corner Farm”

NY: Katonah: Muscoot Farm

My healing injury has offered me the opportunity to find local easier outdoor offerings to enjoy. Fun to see all the smiling families on a hayride around the farm.

While they offer many activities for kids,Continue reading “CT: Fairfield County- Stamford Nature Center”

CT: Fairfield County- New Canaan- Grace Farms

I have travelled a couple of hours to every county in Connecticut finding outdoor adventures forgetting to look in my own backyard! This was my first visit to Grace Farms and I was quite taken by it and could not do it justice. Their mission is to support the environment, nature, community and education inContinue reading “CT: Fairfield County- New Canaan- Grace Farms”

CT: Hartford County- Granby Open Farms Day

On September 18, 2021 there was an open Farms day in Granby which fostered a day of patronizing the local growers of the area. They had a detailed map and calendar of the day events and while it was my first time, my understanding is that this is an annual event. Nice environment with decentContinue reading “CT: Hartford County- Granby Open Farms Day”

CT- Fairfield County- Stamford Nature Center

There is a fee or membership required but if you live near by young or old it’s a great place for a walk. They have their farm, a pollinator garden, a museum with varying exhibits, nature’s playground for the kids and an accessible trail through the woods. Each visit offers me a different experience toContinue reading “CT- Fairfield County- Stamford Nature Center”
