Locavorish: Colchester Trifecta

This summer at the Connecticut Wine Festival in Goshen, we had the pleasure of sampling cheese from Cato Corner Farm in Colchester.  We adored their Bloomsday.  So today we set out in search of more of this tasty cheese.

But before arriving at the farm store, we made a stop for lunch at that Connecticut institution – – Harry’s.  Harry’s has amazing chili dogs, using Connecticut-made Mucke’s hot dogs, and wonderful burgers. You can even get them with sauteed mushrooms and onions.  Mmmm…..  Harry’s is a drive-in with an abundant assortment of picnic tables for outdoor dining.  Better get there soon before they close for the season.

Then it was off to the Cato Corner Farm for a little shopping.  We were able to do a tasting of the six cheeses they had available and purchased wedges of three, including their distinctive Womanchego.

To top off the trifecta, we swung by the Colchester Bakery, another nutmeg state landmark, and purchased a loaf of the pumpernickel rye.  Next time we find ourselves in Colchester, we will have to include a stop at Priam Vineyards.
