Enjoy a sweet treat at this dairy farm.

Since 1868, the Webster family owned a dairy farm close to Litchfield, Connecticut, which they named Arethusa after a pink orchid grew in a swamp on their land. The Arethusa Farm was a dairy farm and the family delivered their local products to the community. The farm was purchased by George Malkemus and Anthony Yurgaitis in 1999. Malkemus and Yurgaitis bought 5 purebred registered Holsteins for the farm and soon added Jerseys and Brown Swiss in an effort to establish their own dairy herd in 2001. Three new barns were added to the farm in 2005 and Arethusa Farm began bottling milk in 2009. 

The Arethusa Farm now has a fine dining restaurant called Arethusa Al Tavolo and just across the street is the bakery, the Arethusa A Mano. You can also visit the scoop shop, which makes fresh waffle cones and has a full line of dairy products such as cheese, yogurt, ice cream, milk, butter, sour cream, and eggnog seasonally. The Dairy & Café is a traditional dairy store. Visitors often come here to enjoy coffee, baked goods, and ice cream. They also have a full breakfast and lunch menu if you're in need of a meal.
