Back in 2017, two family members were in search of a unique “going away” gift for a friend who was leaving their hometown of Ridgefield, Connecticut. They looked for a bit, and coming up empty, realized that there seemed to be a business opportunity in the making – providing gifts that invoked a sense of hometown pride. Sure enough, they put their heads together and came up with some very special, and extremely well received, gifts that paid homage to Ridgefield and the surrounding area, most notably the towns of North Salem, New York and Wilton, Connecticut. The Rooted Plow was born.

Fast forward to the era of Covid-19, portions of the family took advantage of new opportunities and ventured to other parts of New England, and as a result, decided to pass The Rooted Plow to a new ownership team in March 2022. The new team shares the founders’ passion for celebrating this beautiful, historic area of Southern New England with sustainably sourced, high quality gifts crafted right here in the USA.

Here's to all who have embraced The Rooted Plow since its founding and to continuing a legacy of celebrating some very special hometowns.
