This visit was over my birthday weekend in October and the leaves had juuuust fallen off the trees so the landscape was barren-esque, bit not so barren as to have no color at all.

Last week I decided to log into the email account I have associated with this blog for the first time in… maybe six-seven months. I had a bunch of PR emails and a ton of reader emails asking me questions I want to answer. The problem is, I don’t know the answers to some of them so I’m going to start posting them weekly in hopes that other readers will solve these mysteries. Last week a woman was looking for apple cider wine she had in 2012. This week the question is more subjective:
Who has the best apple cider donuts? -Lilly
Like most New Englanders, I consider myself an apple cider doughnut aficionado. Some of my favorites: Bushy Hill Orchard in Granby, Dondero Orchards in Glastonbury, Buell’s in Eastford (pictured above), and I just had Applebrook Farm’s huge doughnuts two weekends ago.
There are only a few fall weekends left. Who makes the best apple cider doughnuts in Connecticut?
I received this question and can’t think of what this place could be… any ideas?
Hi. I visited Connecticut in 2012 and happened on a small roadside shop on the route to Litchfield from Farmington. I cannot for my soul recall the name of the place, but it had the best cider wine I ever had! It was not a huge farm or orchard, just a small family run store. Any ideas what it is? I don’t know the route name either, but it even may have been further out as I went on up into Cornwall bridge too. Thanks for any help!! Anna Walker
The apple cider doughnuts at Horse Listeners Orchard aren’t actually made at Horse Listeners Orchard; they’re from The Milkhouse Bakery in Sterling, but that hardly matters when it’s sunny and beautiful and crisp out. Horse Listeners has all the must-have trappings of a pick-your-own farm: wagons to pull your kids in, cider and doughnuts for sale, and pumpkins and apples to pick. Plus, there are horses just wandering around the orchard eating apples.
They also have their own apple sauce, apple butter and a host of salsas and pickled veggies made from their own produce. This makes it a great place to stock up on hostess gifts for the holidays.
