Welcome to Brown's Bittersweet Farms

Brown's Bittersweet Farms is a unique shopping venue that is open to the public.  You can also enjoy dining at our nostalgic, old time café.  This 120+ year old barn has been converted into an antiques and collectibles marketplace consisting of approximately 12,000 square feet of interesting and exceptional items covering three levels.

Visit Brown’s Bittersweet Farms to peruse antiques, collectibles and other rare finds while treating yourself to delectable snacks and specialty items.   Our featured cafe offers delicious sandwiches, rich and creamy soft serve ice cream and mouth-watering cakes and pies.  All of our wonderful offerings are housed in the historic, rich architecture of a beautifully restored 120 year old barn.

About Us

Brown’s Bittersweet Farms was built out of the dream and vision of Dawn Brown who wanted to find a way to re-connect to simpler times within the fresh, lively atmosphere of the modern day.  Brown’s Bittersweet Farms takes the convenience of today and brings back a sense of nostalgia and fun, by housing  many vendors from different areas and tastes in one large venue.

You will be amazed by the exceptional quality of the timeless vintage antiquities and unique heirlooms here at Brown’s Bittersweet Farms.  Whether you come here in search of a gift, a collectible knick knack or a rare antique, you will be surprised and pleased with all there is to see.  Don’t forget to look at the exquisite architecture of the barn itself, re-built and renovated to maintain its classic structure and history.

No matter the reason you visit us, you can be sure you will definitely be taking home more than a few Bittersweet memories.
