What's Our Story?
What do a born-and-bred New Yorker and a farm girl from rural Minnesota have in common? Our love of our adopted hometown, Ridgefield, Connecticut. We were two young families (who happened to be related) looking for a special place to raise our kids. For the New Yorker, an unsolicited friendly greeting by a complete stranger on Main Street was a startling and welcome contrast to the typical New York street encounter. For the Minnesotan, the warmth and sense of community felt comfortably Midwestern. Individually and together, we have made Ridgefield our home, raised our kids here, and all four cousins attended Ridgefield High School.
Why "The Rooted Plow"?
The name evokes a sense of history and place. It’s a nod to Ridgefield’s farming legacy, its Native American heritage, and the generations of families who have put down roots in this community and added to the strength of its character; the patchwork of its 300-year-old quilt. The Rooted Plow is a metaphor for Ridgefield’s cultural heritage and all the things we find so special about this town.
