I’ve always surrounded myself with hardworking female entrepreneurs, and one of my favorite of the bunch is Carol Adams of Ashlawn Farm. Her energy level exhausts even me (and that’s a feat). Her latest launch (just in time for the 20th anniversary) is Ashlawn Outpost, a new cafe on a bucolic farm in Deep River. While I’m happy pecking away on my laptop for an hour or two of work in the Saybrook location, this new spot screams hang out and enjoy the view. Grab your soy decaf cappuccino and fresh croissant or mini GF Morning Glory (OMG, I love them), and head out to the picnic tables overlooking the field for a calm respite. Moms (and dads) will love it here, with a bevy of toy tractors to keep the tots busy while you leisurely sip your favorite Ashlawn blend. My go-to chicken salad is available, along with yogurt parfaits, plenty of baked delicacies, a variety of sandwiches for lunch, and those crazy chocolate chip cookies, plus all your favorite coffee concoctions and a daily smoothie. Plenty of indoor seating, too. Father’s Day features live music with Tim Lewis and The Scoville Unit from 10am to 1pm: Jazz, coffee and farm fresh air!
Head over Tuesday thru Sunday from 7 am to 4 pm.
P.S. Keep an eye out for the latest product launch in two weeks: Ashlawn’s “Snapchilled” 1730 Blend in a handy can. Snapchilling uses Elemental beverage Co.’s technology to cool hot coffee in seconds and amplify flavor, vibrancy, and aroma.
