arethusa farm

Arethusa farm  is just six miles from my home studio.  It was bought several years ago by the CEO’s of Manolo Blahnik  (there is an article here if you want  to read more). They transformed the dairy from a sort of run-down farm to this gorgeous site (when I was young I took riding lessons on what was once part of the farm).  All the cows here are very happy ones, wouldn’t you be if you lived here?
Today they had their annual sample sale at the farm, I braved the crowds to check it out again (scored last year). The proceeds go to scholarship funds to help kids schooling for agricultural school. 
If you are in Litchfield County, run don’t walk, to taste their ice cream in the center of bantam (in the old firehouse building). It’s the best homemade ice cream around. Have a lovely weekend, and I will be sure to post some images of Julie + Jordan’s outdoor wedding  shin dig today on the farm. Please do a sun dance for us (the skies are looking awfully overcast).
