Farms

Truelove Farms

Tom Truelove and Lindsay Rush run a pasture-based farm raising heritage breed pork, grass-fed beef, heritage turkeys, and roasting chickens. Their free-range eggs are out of this world. Pork is the farm’s main product, but they also have about 1,000 laying hens, 60 cows, and turkeys. With no pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers on the pastures, all of the animals are completely hormone and antibiotic free. Truelove Farms products can be found at these Farmer’s Markets in the summer: Stratford Farmer’s Market, Old Greenwich Farmer’s Market, Branford Alps Farmers Market, Monroe Farmers’ Market, Wooster Square, Coventry Farmers’ Market. In winter they will be at City Seed Indoor Market in New Haven. There is a small convenience store at the farm, open weekday afternoons and weekends from 10am-6pm (or later, if you see the open-flag out).  You can stop by and pick up anything from a dozen eggs to a top round roast.

Food

Popey’s Ice Cream

A best kept secret among the locals, complete with swinging picnic tables outside and a no-frills interior café-style dinning space. It is a wonderful place to enjoy simple food (yummy ice cream as well as hamburgers, hot dogs, fries and onion rings), in a casual setting. It does get crowded on weekends.
