Perched on a bend atop Town Road in Colchester, Connecticut is Cold Spring Farm. It is no surprise that this spot which peers towards East Haddam has a pretty view. Nestled in the countryside, the farm has a quaint atmosphere.
Inside a petite cottage, a row of short scarecrows on sticks stand guard by the front window near a ledger where customer purchases are recorded.
Pumpkins which currently take center stage at this small farm stand, sit side by side on wooden shelves in front of a typically New England style stone wall. The price is jotted on each pumpkin. There are also miniature gourds from which to choose.
Step inside the cottage to find seasonal fruits and vegetables. Part of a farmer’s cooperative known as Common Ground, CommonGroundCSA.com , they also sell their goods at area farmer’s markets.
Should your travels take you off the beaten path, that’s where you’ll find Cold Spring Farm.
