Oronoque Farms is located at 188 Leavenworth Road (Route 110), in Shelton’s White Hills neighborhood.

The company started in the late 1940s when hand-baked pies were sold from a roadside stand. Oronoque Orchards was in Stratford, and later moved to Shelton after a fire destroyed the original bakery. Learn more at www.oronoquefarms.com.
