Good Eats: Cygnets

Where some saw an abandoned general store and post office, Keith Swann saw a restaurant. After years in the restaurant business, Swann and his wife, Holly, moved to his family’s farm in Lottsburg. He’d come thinking that it would be cool to open a restaurant, but not until December 2020 when he saw a For Sale sign in front of the old general store did the idea take flight.
