Less than two miles outside of the artistic village of Stony Creek in Branford, Connecticut sits a true legend in the iconic “Lakso Farm” a.k.a. “The Old Stone Barn of Stony Creek”; a farm that has stood the test of time and graciously welcomed visitors to this quaint Shoreline Town, and The Thimble Islands, for almost a century. Frozen in time and weathered, the iconic farmhouse and old stone barn stand like beacons for those making their way back to the shoreline and The Thimble Islands after a long week in the city. The fabulous Leetes Island Road location, just off of Interstate 95 at Exit 56, still provides a perfect quick on and off for residents and visitors on their way home or to visit the scenic shoreline. Plump strawberries, sweet corn, luscious tomatoes, peaches, pumpkins and a wide variety of delicious vegetables and fresh cut flowers made their way from the over 40 acres of pristine farmland to the little farm stand that still stands today. The composition of the rich fertile soil kissed by glacial rock minerals was long thought to be the secret behind the deliciousness of the fruits and vegetables. In fact, the land was bestowed the prestigious A.V.A. Designation; designating it as a Viticultural Area with soils second only to the Connecticut River Valley and perfectly suited for a Shoreline Vineyard.The farmhouse itself is rich in history; cared for almost two and one-half centuries by a Town Selectman, teachers and a pioneer of “moving pictures”.
