A Few Local Gems

Its been a little hectic in the bakery these past few weeks, so this entry is late. The pics are so gorgeous, I had to post it anyway :)

After pumping out hundreds of bags of cookies last week, I was thrilled to be able to enjoy the picture perfect weather this Labor Day week-end with my family. Instead of joining the throngs of travelers heading to the beach, we opted to stay home and take advantage of what Warwick has to offer. Although we've been living here for seven years, we never fail to discover a delightful, local gem if we search hard enough.

Our daughter has been telling us lately that she wants to be a farmer when she grows up, so we've been trying to expose her to as much of the local farm country as we can. We hit three farms in one day over the Labor Day weekend for a scrumptious country breakfast overlooking the sunflower fields at Rogowski Farm, a milking demo and tour of Bellvale Farms (home of Bellvale Farms Creamery), and a tasty dinner and some local brews with live music at Pennings Farm Market.

It was an awesome way to spend a rare day off "in my own backyard."


  1. Wow! Kudos to Tom! These pictures are stunning.

  2. Does Tom sell these pictures! They capture Warwick.

  3. Thanks, Pam and Missy! What lovely compliments. And thank you for reading the blog!!

    Missy, yes he does sell his photos. He's a portrait photographer, but his true love is in landscapes and details of a particular place that make it special. He can be reached at for info and pricing.
