Bright Acres Farm
Bright Acres Farm: Our maple syrup is made in the Quiet Corner town of Hampton, Connecticut. It all began in the 1980's with a kid boiling sap in foil roasting pans over a 55 gallon drum stove in the back yard. The process evolved through several homemade evaporators, to an antique Grimm evaporator in an old wood shed. In 2011, we built a post and beam sugar house and installed a new state of the art, energy efficient Leader Evaporator.

While we may be operating with the most to date technology, it still takes a lot of old fashioned hard work to produce maple syrup. Thankfully, our good friends, family and neighbors are always willing to lend a helping hand.

The tradition of making maple syrup began when Native Americans cut maples and collected sap. It takes about 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of syrup in a good year. Like fine wine the taste of syrup varies from one geographical location to another.

We hope you take pleasure in this local, sustainable, all natural product make from the bounty of the land. And remember, syrup isn't just for breakfast anymore!

Hosmer Mountain Logo
Hosmer Mountain Beverages: Hosmer Mountain Bottling Co. was purchased in 1958 by Arthur J. Potvin from Mrs. Fred Meyer, whose husband had passed away the previous summer.

The Potvin’s then became the fourth family to run Hosmer. With the help of his wife and two eldest sons: Bill and John, Arthur began the arduous tasks that make the soda business a difficult one. He worked hard at keeping the machinery operational and the trucks on the road, blending the soda varieties, and keeping the customer happy. He learned how to make good soda with the help of a salesman and through trial and error.

All soda was made with bagged sugar in those days and dry ice was converted to gaseous CO2 for the carbonation. All cases were wooden and bottles were all heavy refillable glass bottles. Two more sons, Andrew and Chuck, joined the operation in the late 60’s.

Early changes included getting a company logo (the shield that is still used today) and going to reusable fiber cases. However, the use of glass bottles has remained constant. Many of the same flavors are still available today along with the addition of diet beverages, seltzer water, and some new trendy drinks.

La Bonta Logo
La Bonta di Fiesole: Here is the highest quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil imported from Italy! This is your site for fine artisan-quality extra virgin olive oil, grown, pressed and bottled in Tuscany. La Bontá di Fiesole means "The Goodness of Fiesole"--Fiesole is an ancient town lying just outside of Florence, Italy--and this delicious gourmet extra virgin olive oil is made the old-fashioned way, using entirely traditional methods.
Taken from the first cold pressing and left unfiltered in order to preserve its full body, La Bontá di Fiesole extra virgin olive oil is painstakingly produced in tiny quantities from olive varieties native to Tuscany: the frantoio, the morellino, the pendolino, the morchiaiolo, the leccino. Our olive groves are centuries old, and our trees are hand-cultivated on steep slopes in the foothills of the central Italian Appenines.

This boutique extra virgin olive oil has what lovers of highest quality Italian olive oil are looking for: an intense aroma, a rich green color with glints of gold, a luscious body, a piquant flavor. Creamy in the front of the mouth and spicy as you swallow, La Bontá di Fiesole is Tuscan in style, the kind of great tasting and intensely fragrant extra virgin olive oil that is famous around the world.
Liussi Cheese Logo
Liuzzi Cheese: Puglia, Bari, Alberobello-enchanting names given to a southern Adriatic region of Italy; a place of beauty and vitality, blessed by the sun and Mediterranean ocean breezes. Inhabited for millennia, this region of Italy thrives with agricultural abundance and proud, hard-working, self reliant people such as the Liuzzi family.

The founders of our company, Pasquale and Nick Liuzzi, came to this country thirty-nine years ago. They had a dream to establish their own enterprise, producing premium quality cheeses and fine foods, reminiscent of those made by the Liuzzi family for five generations.

Most of her breads are made with only three ingredients: Organic flour, well water and salt. Most of her breads typically take two days to make, as a slow fermentation process creates a final loaf with greater texture and superior flavor. Other fine baked goods made at Sweet Sage Bakery include a variety of fruit scones, muffins, including the very popular morning glory (similar to carrot cake), and rich and decadent bars.
