Phinney’s is a new, local grocer supplying produce, pantry staples, and a carefully curated selection of high quality goods. We will also provide weekly prepared dinners, available for take out only. 
At Phinney’s, we value trust and transparency.That’s why we only partner with farms that run equitably, offering livable wages, safe working conditions, and growth opportunities, and with producers, distributors, and importers who feel as strongly about keeping it real as we do. It all starts with our embrace of regenerative agriculture, a form of food production that puts our planet first. We support farmers who engage in this progressive practice by stocking our shelves with what they grow, and telling their stories — because we believe in high-quality goods and high-quality people. Most importantly, we consider every customer a guest in our home. When you come to Phinney’s, you’re not only getting the best food products from in and around Newtown, Connecticut — you’re getting warm conversation with neighbors, and a chance to learn more about the part you play in your own local agricultural system. When you buy community-grown, your community grows. 
Phinney’s also lives online, allowing you to shop for all your provisions from home and pick up curbside at your convenience.
Phinney’s is located at 125 South Main Street, Newtown. Follow along on Instagram for their latest menus, product offerings, and more.

Hi! I’m Dr. Debra Dlug and I own Well Adjusted, LLC, a Chiropractic Wellness Center located in Brookfield. We see patients of all ages, and not just those in acute or chronic pain. Many patients seek care at our office to help prevent and improve their health and lifestyle. Each person receives individualized treatment plans to make sure they receive the best care and see results. I believe we don’t need to look just to the skeletal and nervous system, but the muscular system as well. Integrating spinal manipulation/mobilizations, stretches, rehabilitation, supplements, CBD, nutritional advise, dry needling, cupping, massage, yoga and other modalities. Our office has a focus in pre and post natal care.

I had gotten certified in the “Webster technique” while still in graduate school and continued to take classes with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). I felt very strongly that the pediatric population could benefit with chiropractic care. The Webster Technique is a specific adjustment that address misalignment and imbalances in the pelvis to open up the pelvis to allow more room for the baby to move and provide more balance. Chiropractic care as been shown to maintain healthy pregnancies, help decrease discomforts throughout pregnancy (headaches, nausea, insomnia and more), reduce time of labor and delivery, relieves back, neck and joint pain plus more. After having my first baby, I truly felt the benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy and love to share that with others. The postpartum period was not what I expected, and realized how little postpartum care we have for women. There is the 6 week check up and most commonly cleared to return to normal activities. It wasn’t until after the 6 weeks did I notice a Diastasis Recti and most of all, pelvic floor dysfunction. I thought I could return back to my normal exercise activities but dealt with urine incontinence and more, as well as having back pain while taking care of my newborn. This experience pushed me to find more programs to help women postpartum. It’s been a love of mine to talk with women about how to prepare for labor and ways to help their postpartum period. Many know how hard it is physically and emotionally after having a baby and then even more taking care of a newborn and having other kids to care for. Self care becomes non-existent. After having my second baby in June 2020, and taking care of a toddler, I realized even more how much we need to have these conversations about common postpartum conditions and how we can address this (Diastasis recti, prolapse, urine incontinence, other pelvic floor dysfunction, neck and low back pain, headaches and more).
