The Connecticut Country Store is the kind of place I wish I lived right around the corner from: they’ve got organic, locally grown veggies; they’ve got grass-fed, locally grown beef for sale; they sell really adorable hand-crafted gift items like blankets and art work; fresh-baked pies; and, they have flowers, lots and lots of beautiful fresh flowers.
The store features a greenhouse where they grow said flowers, lots of gardening supplies like mulch and top soil, and they even have a petting zoo on weekends (although the usuals –goats Cupcake and Buttercup–were home giving birth the day I visited; the moms and babies are all doing great now according to their Facebook page.) This is a wonderful place to spend some time on a weekend morning with a cup of coffee, perusing some Connecticut-made products, getting your gardening supplies, taking in the beautiful flowers, and bringing home some healthy produce for dinner (and pie, obviously!).
