Show Cows and More at Arethusa Farm in nearby Litchfield

A new excursion while staying at Cornucopia at Oldfield Bed and Breakfast is a visit to Arethusa Farm and Dairy in nearby  Litchfield (20 minute drive).  Founded by George Malkemus and Anthony Yurgaitis (owners of Manolo shoes) in 1999, this dairy farm is now the home of some very famous cows.  These "Show Cows" are sought after for their breeding as well as their excellent milk.




Take the tour of the barn to see how well these cows are cared for (although not as well as you will be at Cornucopia at Oldfield - but close), learn more about milk production and breeding 



and then go visit their recently opened shop in nearby Bantam where their ice cream and cheeses are receiving rave reviews.  Their outdoor seating area should open soon.  And remember to say hi to Veronica:
