Situated in Lyme, CT, Ashlawn Farm has been in the same family since 1909. In recent years, crops have changed from local to global, and the old milk room has been reborn as a top flight coffee roaster. “There’s something exotic about buying coffees from plantations around the world; there’s something comforting in buying coffee from the farm down the road. For eighty-five years, Ashlawn Farm provided dairy products to many households in Connecticut. Now, although you’ll have to get your milk somewhere else, you can use it in our Farm Coffee. And rest assured that you are still drinking exotic coffee because we buy only the best Arabica green beans from coffee farms on every coffee growing continent.
