New Pond Farm located in Redding, CT is an environmental educational center and working farm. The center offers three mains programs: educational farm programs, astronomy programs and the Native American program. Their Native American program focuses on the life ways of the Eastern Woodland Indians that once inhabited these lands.
New Pond Farm has a strong focus on their surrounding community. They encourage members to join their “Shared Harvest”. Participants learn about the overall process of tending to a garden. Throughout the year, members are invited to work in the New Pond gardens for a share of the produce grown throughout the season.
New Pond Farm is home to six different cattle breeds: Ayrshire, Brown Swiss, Guernsey, Holstein, Jersey and the American Milking Shorthorn. New Pond Farm is a state-licensed dairy so all of the milk and yogurt is pasteurized and bottled on the farm. If you visit the on-site dairy annex, you can learn more about the different cows and dairy production. Don’t forget to purchase some fresh milk and yogurt!

The other afternoon, I was lucky enough to get up close and personal with one of my favorite local chefs, Luke Venner. I got a chance to hang out behind the scenes, whip up some bomb butter and chat all things Churncraft.
A few weeks ago, a jury of 39 design experts from around the world met in Germany to judge more than 5’500 product innovations from 54 countries. After careful evaluation, the jury paid tribute to Churncraft’s design with the coveted Red Dot distinction. The Churncraft butter churn will be exhibited at the Red Dot Design Museum in Essen, Germany, along with the other winners.
