National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day
August 4 @ 6:00 am - 4:00 pm
At Barstow’s, every day is Chocolate Chip Cookie Day! We celebrate year round….
But National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day is celebrated on August 4!
Shannon, head baker and seventh generation Barstow, prepares chocolate chip cookies at Barstow’s Dairy Store and Bakery, daily, using Grandma Barstow’s recipe. Shannon spent hours in the kitchen with Grandma while she was growing up. Today, her dream to be a baker is very much a reality at her family’s 214 year old dairy farm! Grandma Barstow passed away in 2017, but her legacy lives on in many ways – including the recipe book at Barstow’s.
Grandma kept a diary of her life beginning at age 13. The entries recount her daily routines, doing the wash, mopping the floors, visiting with family, baking cookies, pies, or cakes. In October of 1994 she notes that she’s made 10,000 cookies so far – just in that year.
Celebrate the most popular cookie of all time at your neighborhood dairy farm on August 4 (and everyday!).
Barstow’s Dairy Store and Bakery and Barstow’s Longview Farm is owned and operated by sixth and seventh generation Barstow’s. Nestled at the base of Skinner State Park and right alongside the Connecticut River, the dairy farm has been a part of the landscape since 1806.
Barstow’s Dairy Store and Bakery offers homemade baked goods and pies, lunch from local ingredients, farm fresh produce, farm raised beef, ice cream, and scenic views of protected farmland from the porch and dining room. This family friendly store is open daily year round. Come meet your neighborhood dairy farmer!
