We'll also be serving wine from our award-winning collection, as well as beer from the Thomas Hooker Brewery. This event will also feature the county music & bluegrass stylings of Appalachian Still. Plus plenty of great farm games including Hay Bale Toss, a Corn Shucking Competition, Hayrides and more!

Our most favorite time of the year is just one week away. Next Friday, June 5th, we will formally kick-off the 2014 season here at Rosedale Farms and Vineyards! We have once again teamed-up with Executive Chef Scott Miller and his team to bring you the Chef-to-Farm Dinner series with Max's, and first on the menu is "The Max Lobster Clam Bake", on June 14th from 4pm-9pm. For more information and to purchase tickets please visit the Max Online Store.

We're also proud to announce that our NEW Smartphone app is here! Available for both Android and iPhone devices, the FREE Rosedale app offers one-touch calling, a calendar of events, original Rosedale recipes, directions to lots of local businesses, plenty of social media sharing options, and much more!

Now through Christmas Eve we'll be open daily with adjusted holiday hours. You can visit the farm Monday-Thursday from 12-6pm, or Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 10am-7pm.
We'll have Christmas Trees (generously provided by our friends at CRS Landscape in Simsbury), wreaths, decorations, baked goods, Rosedale wines, and a variety of holiday gifts. Plus, you can still purchase your Rosedale Membership Plan for 2014.
We look forward to seeing you this Holiday Season!

So here's the plan. There's just one plan.
We're no longer offering Summer, Fall, and All-Season Memberships. Instead customers can now purchase just one simple, easy-to-use plan. This membership plan will run from late June through mid-October – that's 12 weeks of guaranteed farm-fresh produce all season long. And, members will receive an automatic 20% OFF everything at the farmstand all-season long including wine, plus 2 FREE passes to our Corn Maze!
Early registration is going on now for a limited time for $399.00. Purchase your CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Plan on our Farm Membership page.
It's that time of year again. Rosedale Farms & Vineyards welcomes you and your family to Corn-maze-ing! Individual tickets are $8, children under 3 can enter the maze for FREE! We'll have donuts and cider available for sale, as well. Get a little exercise in the cool, crisp air. Bring the whole family... just be sure you leave with the whole family.

About the Owners
Kevin and Anne Plaut took over West Hartford’s famous Harry’s Bishops Corner in 2007, formerly owned by Harry Rufleth. Kevin and Anne had been long-time employees of Harry’s, originally meeting and working at Harry’s Pizza on Farmington Avenue. In 2007, Harry decided to retire from a long, successful career in the pizza business. But he didn’t want to sell the business to just anybody, so he asked Kevin and Anne if they were interested. Kevin and Anne are now the proud owners of Harry’s Bishop’s Corner and take great care of the name and reputation that has been built over the years. Kevin and Anne are so grateful to their customers for their support and encouragement.
We're popping the cork on wine-tasting season this Saturday, July 6th, and Sunday, July 7th from Noon until 5pm. At our Tasting Room you'll enjoy a sampling of our vintages including six, 1-ounce pours, and leave with a souvenir wine glass for just $9/person! We also welcome group tastings by appointment. Call 860-810-4440 to arrange a private tasting for your group.
