Back in 1969, Stew Leonard opened a store for his family’s farm, Clover Farms Dairy. In the span of just a few decades, it’s grown into a legendary chain of dairy stores with six locations in Connecticut and New York.
Ripley's Believe It or Not named Stew Leonard's "The World's Largest Dairy." It's also been named to Fortune Magazine's list of the best companies to work for.
Unlike most grocery stores, customers must pass through the entire store, unless they know the shortcuts.
As customers walk through the store, they're greeted by costumed employees and singing and dancing animatronic characters called the "Farm Fresh Five"
The dairy megastore isn't just known for its cheese; the produce section here is legendary. The stores make an effort to buy locally-produced foods whenever possible.
Piles of heirloom tomatoes sit waiting to be made into sauces, salsas, and everything else Connecticut's home chefs can imagine.
The bakers at Stew Leonard's show up at the crack of dawn to make delightful seasonal treats.
The store is also known for its prepared foods. The stores also feature outdoor cafes and seasonal petting zoos.
When fall comes around the bend, Stew Leonard's is where you'll find some of the most enormous pumpkins grown in Connecticut this year. We're here for it.

99 Federal Road Danbury, CT 06811
3475 Berlin Turnpike Newington, CT 06111
100 Westport Avenue Norwalk, CT 06851
