Who We Are

Welcome To The Smithy

We strive to source and showcase  local, sustainable & organic  products that support our local community and global ecosystem.

Our community

In the heart of New Preston, The Smithy is housed in an authentic recreation of the village's mid-19th century blacksmith shop.

This dynamic community hub, promotes and celebrates the best of everything local : farms, foods, arts, crafts, classes, performances and events.

"In Passing" is a collection of landscapes, water views, city scenes, floral studies, still life, and wildlife images by Connecticut photographers Susan Reinberg and Marc Isolda.

"We chose the theme "In Passing" for this exhibit," Susan explains, "because that is how our photographs are made. We stop along the way. The images are the journal of our lives."

“I've had a camera in my hand since I was 8 years old,” Marc says. “Even then, I was fascinated with the idea that I could capture a moment in time — I could freeze forever something that would never happen again. Taking pictures was almost magical. I still feel that way.”
