As you leave Connecticut's coast, the scenery turns into a pastoral painting of farm fields dotted with cows, largely because of the state's concentration of dairy farms. At Litchfield's Arethusa Farm Dairy, visitors can get up close to their prize-winning Holsteins, Jerseys and Brown Swiss cattle roaming the five-acre plot and sample craft-made dairy delights. Take a tour of the farm (on Saturdays you can visit the milking barn), then stop by the dairy shop for scoops of handmade ice cream crafted with milk from Arethusa's herd.
