Ed Sullivan's Connecticut farm | TV Guide, Buffalo, 23-07-1955


Ed Sullivan, the Toast of the Town man, swaps town for country every chance he gets these days-to hie himself out to his new home (once occupied by Arlene Francis) and his nearly 200 acres of Connecticut farmland, 22 miles north- east of Bridgeport. A self-designated (and New York-born) "city slicker," Ed now happily is learning how much fodder will take a Guernsey or a Holstein through the winter, how many pounds of milk each gives a day, and what constitutes a cord of wood. However, the necessary work around the place, he stresses, is being done by real farmers.
