Holiday Gift Guide 2023
The communities of Litchfield County arguably reflect that spirit year-round, and nowhere is it more obvious than in the small businesses serving us. Show them the love this season!
Collector’s Items
Litchfield-based Arethusa Farm has been producing its eggnog for over a decade. Each year, they prepare a limited batch of sweet eggnog that flies off the refrigerated shelves.
For Christmas, a Historic Organ in a Tiny Church
The Trinity Milton Church in Litchfield holds claim to having the oldest functioning tracker organ in the country and the only one in Connecticut.
Slices with Santa, A Washington Holiday Tradition
The event is a fundraiser for the Washington Community Fund, which supports Washington families and individuals who face unforeseen emergencies and who require assistance.
Design Chic
The couple wanted their mid-century Tom Babbitt-designed guest house renovated and updated, but with the original layout and sensibility retained.
Featured Eats
Restaurants, libations, and local food
Like any creative person, there is always the desire to find something new and fresh, to put behind you your last restaurant, your last book, your last painting, and start all over again.
The restaurant business is not known for its longevity so when a restaurant such as New Milford’s Lucia Ristorante has been open for 16 years it’s a sign they are doing something right.
