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

Carlson Orchards apples are simply the best!  Try this recipe for 
using any of the delicious varieties in the market!
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! 
And while we are thinking about branded t-shirts and sweatshirts, we are on the look out for any vintage Bartlett's clothing you might have lurking in the bottom of your dresser drawers!  We are looking for new 'old' designs to bring back. Send us a photo of any old t-shirt designs you find! 
In the Greenhouse
The pansies aren't ready quite yet, but the garden center is opening March 14 with pottery, hard goods and garden supplies,
so you know flowers won't be far behind! 
Imagine yourself picking fresh vegetables from
your own garden...
Seeds from Renee's Garden and from Botanical Interest are in the market...just in time to start planning your garden.  
Check out this Coloring Book that you can download. You can also get one free when you purchase 3 packs of Botanical Interest Seeds.

You asked for them...
We are now carrying savory pies from the
nationally known Centerville Pie Company!

Pre-made Frozen Pie Crusts!

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.
