Looking for a place to lunch today? Here's an idea: The Farmer's Cow Calfè & Creamery will officially open for business at 11 a.m. in Mansfield.
"We chose Mansfield because its central to all the [Farmer's Cow] farms," General Manager Justeen Bligh told Mansfield-Storrs Patch Thursday. "We have a place where we can offer and showcase all of The Farmer's Cow Products."
That being said, the Calfè and Creamery will feature dozens of products Farmer's Cow fans know and love.

Head in for lunch and take your pick of salads, wraps, sandwiches, paninis and lunch specials like the Half & Half: Choose Two: half a sandwich on a Chabaso roll, or half garden salad, or cup of soup for $6.95. Or try the Traditional English Ploughman’s Lunch ($6.95): an open-faced Chabaso Ciabatta with a wedge of Cabot aged sharp cheddar & sliced Boar’s Head ham with lettuce, tomato, red onion, Branston Pickle & The Farmer’s Cow hard-boiled egg.
Looking for a sweet treat to polish off your meal? Fresh Connecticut ice cream with flavors like "Up Early Coffee," "Fields of Mint Chocolate Chip" and "Black Raspberry Moo Chocolate Chip," and Farmer's Cow Sundaes, shakes and floats are all on the menu.
The menu also includes local products such as Hosmer Mountain soda and Beltane Farm goat cheese. Breakfast options will be available in the coming days.
Indoor and outdoor seating is available.
Bligh said she has hired nearly two dozen people to help out at the Calfè & Creamery and is looking to add more to her staff.
