Ledyard Real Estate Update
Ledyard Photo Friday - Gypsy Moths

Buttonwood Farms in Griswold 2012

I’ve been working on cleaning up photos on my computer and came across some of my very favorites from Buttonwood Farms in Griswold. It reminded me that it won’t be too much longer before my annual trip to the farm to shoot photos and eat ice-cream.

The owners at Buttonwood Farms plant 10 acres of sunflowers, providing 300,000 magnificent blooms framed by blue skies and stone walls. Every year they sell bunches of these flowers and donate the proceeds to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Over the years, they have raised $500,000 for the cause. 

During the weeklong event, people and their cameras show up from all over the state to visit.  I go back each year to see if I can take an even better photo!  This year the event runs from 10 a.m. to dusk the week of July 21 - 29th.

While I love the view, the ice cream is also pretty special. My favorite is peppermint stick with the peach flavor a close second. Buttonwood Farms is only about 25 minutes from my real estate office in Ledyard and once the sunflowers have finished blooming, the ice cream is still there.
