An Autumnal Afternoon in Redding, CT

An Autumnal Afternoon in Redding, CT

Autumn is the best time of the year to go for country drives in Connecticut. Though we live in a suburban area, we are lucky to be so close to such bucolic landscapes. Driving north for just thirty minutes, you find yourself surrounded by charming farmhouses, babbling brooks and rusty red horse trailers sitting in the woods.

The historic New England village of Redding has been meticulously preserved. The town green, bare of any signage and commercial establishments, is comprised only of a classic old church and a few other long-standing white clapboard buildings. Walking through the green makes you feel as if you’ve stepped back in time.

Getting lost on the winding roads of Redding, we came across so many beautiful things. On our trip, we met a sweet, gentle horse named Gypsy grazing in her pasture. We stumbled upon a one room school house that dates back to the late 1700s. We even passed by a beekeeper out front of her home, busy at work, prepping her hives for the winter. It was a serene afternoon surrounded by the beauty of rural life.

I headed into the Designer's Night party at the Red Dot Museum in search of Churncraft. Words can't describe how exciting it was to turn the corner and see our Churncraft butter churn beautifully displayed in the culinary section of the "Living" exhibit. Nestled in between Cuisinart and Breville, our butter churn stood out as one of the most beautiful and unique products there.

There's no better way to kick off summer than a visit to the Nantucket Wine and Food Festival. Last year, Churncraft had our debut at the NWFF. Though we weren't selling yet, we got a chance to teach people about slow-churned butter and introduce them to our modern butter churn.
