Jones Family Farms, nestled in the White Hills of Shelton, with its 19th century dairy barn and homestead farmhouse, impresses the visitor as a peaceful and relaxed living environment. The beautiful countryside with its orderly rows of Christmas trees, neat stonewalls, and well-maintained fields are the result of efforts by seven generations of Jones family farmers. The farmers of the 400-acre working farm invite families to visit and harvest seasonal crops. Presently under cultivation are 200 acres of Christmas trees, 15 acres of strawberries, 15 acres of blueberries, and 25 acres of pumpkins, gourds and squash. The Jones farmers harvest these crops from three different farm locations known as the Homestead Farm, the Valley Farm, and Pumpkinseed Hill. The farm also manages 50 acres of hay land and 50 acres of woodlots. Over five acres of grapes are in production for the farm's winery.
Off to our annual visit to Jones Farms to get our two Christmas tree. The season just opened and we were there early in the morning to get our trees. Best time to go to beat the post-Thanksgiving rush. The staff is always very helpful...MoreThanks for the summary Andres! It looks like you cover a lot of ground on your visit! We are happy to help you start celebrating the traditions of the Christmas season!

Veracious Brewing Company in Monroe Connecticut was created by Tess and Mark Szamatulski the owners of Maltose Express. Tess and Mark have written two books on brewing beer and have operated Maltose Express for 27 years. They brew many styles of beer and now have 19 beers on tap in their tap room. Please stop in and try world-class beers in a local setting.
We recently visited Veracious Brewing Company on a Saturday afternoon. We were drawn by the fact that this particular brewery has been noted as one of the best in the state. Along with a family member we shared two flights allowing us to sample eight different brews. Each was unique and enjoyable. At the time we visited the place wasn't crowded, but they have seating for many. We opted to go to a local restaurant for lunch but Veracious encourages you to bring your own food or to arrange for delivery from one of the menus they have on hand from local restaurants. Veracious sells growlers which can be refilled on site for those who live locally, but we were disappointed that it wasn't possible to purchase bottled beer. While it is a bit of a trek from our home, we hope to return soon with friends for an evening out.

This was a nice, clean state park. Unless you're into water sports there didn't seem to be much to do, but the scenery was nice.

Great place to see a movie for a few dollars--free on the third Saturday night of the month (thanks Ingersol Motors!). Concessions are inexpensive and while you are there get lost in the building whether it be looking at the amazing paintings on the walls of the stairways or looking at the old gym filled with memories, or just poking around. Great building and the center of Newtown. When you go outside, look at the benches and what's written as well as checking out the plaque by the mailboxes.

The Derby Greenway is approx. 3.5 miles long. You are able to park easily in Bj's parking lot and walk across the street. The beginning of the greenway is up a small incline and it is easy to walk. At about the 3/4 mile mark you cross under Route 34 and when you emerge on the other side you will not believe where you are. The area is forested with ponds and wildlife. You can either complete the loop and return or go under the Route 8 bridge and take several pedestrian bridges to downtown Derby. The entire walk is on a wide paved path and if you are not up to walking the entire path even a short walk is wonderful. Bikes are allowed but pets are not which makes for a nice clean path with no surprises along the way

This park is for everyone! Families, couples, solo hikers, byciclers, dogs ponds and strollers! There are many different entrances and thus trails but they all can eventually lead towards water where you can fish or canoe or kayak. Great place to spend time :)

*Please call ahead to check for special hours and closings* ROCKIN' JUMP is a trampoline park with over 10,000 sq. ft. of trampolines - including open jump arenas, foam pit, trampoline dodgeball & basketball. ROCKIN' JUMP is a very popular and unique venue for birthday parties and family gatherings. As a party destination, we provide a place for kids to let loose while parents relax and socialize with one another knowing our staff monitors safe jumping.
This is a fun place to take the kids-- especially great for a kid's party. It's a series of areas that have "trampoline floors" for jumping, playing basketball and for little kids to bounce around. They have a concession for food you'd expect in a cheap concession. The kids have a great time as do parents watching the antics. It's done by the hour or a little longer for parties. I think they have parties where you can supply the food, but not sure of that.
It's worth while.
