Wright's Orchard

Every so often I find a place that I feel compelled to advise everyone in Connecticut to go to right away. Union's Mountain Laurel Sanctuary is one of those spots, as is the Kinne Cemetery in Griswold. Here's another, and it's especially good if you want apples or gourds or dried flowers: Wright's Orchard in Tolland.

It's located in a rural/residential area near the Willington line, and it's not one of those farms where the apple picking is a Scene and everyone's judging your boots. There's a pretty pick-your-own orchard and a sweet-smelling farm stand, but the best part of Wright's is the weathered old barn where dried flowers hang from the ceiling in bunches. This is really a cooler experience than it might seem, and if you want to see it this year you should go now; the dried flower barn closes for the season at the end of December.
