The Indian Neck General Store and the Stand are undergoing a transformation.
Located across from Lenny's Indian Head Restaurant, the general store was originally an auto repair shop and garage, owned and operated by the Beatty family since 1938. In recent years the garage expanded to include a convenience store selling various sundries, newspapers, snacks and fresh coffee.
New owners Ted Cwiertniewicz and Kevin O'Neill recently purchased this idyllic property and have plans to eventually expand the store, having already given the vegetable stand a fresh new look. They've added a quaint seating area where customers can sit a spell, enjoy their coffee, and pick up some fresh local and New England vegetables. And, they still offer the convenience of filling up your propane to help us all fire up those gas grills this summer.

Here's a picture walking tour of some of the things you'll find when you stop and visit at the Indian Neck General Store and The Stand.
Inside the store are boxed and canned goods, ice cream, candy, friendly service and fresh coffee.

Outside you'll find an outdoor patio with the most comfortable rocking chairs ever (and they're for sale too) - the perfect place to sit a spell and enjoy a deli sandwich, cold soda pop, or cup of coffee with friends.
Around back, you'll find fresh herbs and vegetables being grown.
There's always fresh produce at The Stand!
And all are from local farmers around CT and New England!
Did I mention there are FRESH PIES???
And handmade goods from my friends at Sunflower Farms!
Beautiful flowers and herbs surround the property...
Stop down and sit a spell! - Buy a soda and a sandwich!
Do some people watching and enjoy the summer weather!
We loved meeting new owner Ted and learning all about his visions for the store. He was so quick to point out that they couldn't be doing all these great things without the support of long time employees, new staff, and most importantly, the Branford Community!
And we're so happy that the tradition of "Buy Local" stays in Branford Connecticut!
