Remember When?
Many of you have been shopping at Bartlett's Farm for a long time.  And with that, you have lots of memories.  During the month of March (and beyond) we will be sharing images we have collected
since the mid-1990's! 

Do You Instagram?...Do You Facebook?...Do you Tweet?

We do all of them, and that's where you can find and add images of your own memories at the farm.  It's OK if you don't do social media though.  
If you want to email your photo to us for us to share, click here. 
We'd love to see them!
You can share your images in the following ways.
Instagram - follow us and tag us @bartlettsfarm
Facebook - follow us and tag us Bartlett's Farm
Twitter - follow us and tag us @Bartletts Farm

Stay tuned for a Retro Clothing Instagram Contest...rules will be posted here and on Instagram next week! 
Remember when Ben and Jerry were just young'uns?
Dave is giving them practice in their yoke when they were just little guys back in 2009. 
What do you get when you mix a Centerville Pie Crust with
Pink Lady Apples from Carlson Orchards? 
The Easiest Apple Pie!
sugar, flour, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, salt
8 cups thinly sliced peeled Pink Lady apples
There are two crusts per package, so use one for the bottom crust, and invert the second one for the top.
Check out the wall in the market where sweatshirts, t-shirts and sweat pants are 50% off.  Don't wait - this sale is over when the merchandise is gone.  These aren't seconds...just a little overstock that needs to be cleared out for some 2016 designs! 
In the Greenhouse
Fernanda just planted the first crop of greenhouse lilies.
They will be ready to harvest in about 100 days...
look for them in the market!
Bulbs from the Netherlands are planted in black crates with nutrient-rich soil, then they are watered directly with drip irrigation.
This is a technique farmer Pete developed over 20 years ago.
Imagine Yourself in the Garden...
Seeds from Renee's Garden and from Botanical Interest are in the market...just in time to start planning your garden.  
Watch this video to get in the mood to start growing something! 
Centerville Pies
You asked for them...
We are now carrying savory pies from the
nationally known Centerville Pie Company!
Chicken Pot Pie
Shepherds Pie (with Sweet Potato Top)
Spinach Pie
Pulled Pork Pie
Pre-made Frozen Pie Crusts! (See Apple Pie Recipe Above)

In 2010, Centerville Pie Company Inc. expanded its production by partnering with Cape Abilities, a nearby non-profit organization that supports people with disabilities on Cape Cod, helping them with housing, transportation and employment. Centerville Pie Company now handles much of its pie-making operations from the Cape Abilities location and employs over 50 disabled adults.
The company also supports Cape Abilities by donating a portion of their annual proceeds to the non-profit.
