Blue Jay Orchards

Blue Jay Orchards
125 Plumtrees Road


The farm's history as a modern orchard dates back to 1934 when Mr. Josephy brought a farm house and 50 acres from Elizabeth Weed. The Weed family had owned the farm for many years. When her husband died, Elizabeth Weed kept a few cows and sold butter that she churned from their milk.  She also opened her home to New York City vacationers during the summer months, becoming one of the Danbury area's first Bed & Breakfasts.
