Using our organic farm grown fennel, mint and some of Elizabeth's Nantucket-made Gioia burrata you have a simple and beautiful dish.

2 medium heads fennel, cored and very thinly sliced
2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for serving
6 strips lemon zest, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons lemon juice
8 ounces burrata
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Grilled or broiled bread slices, for serving

Place fennel, oil, zest and lemon juice in a shallow dish; season with salt and pepper. Let stand 10 minutes. (Meanwhile, grill or broil bread slices, if serving.) Just before serving, arrange fennel salad on a large platter. Scatter burrata and mint over fennel. Drizzle with additional olive oil.

 
 
 
 
 
Cisco Sunsets
Cisco sunsets are amazing! And Bartlett's Farm can help make it a delicious evening as well. Stop in for a steamed lobster dinner with all the fixings or a bottle of Rosé paired with one of our
fabulous cheeses and crackers.
 
 
 
 
 
Guess the Corn Date!
How good is your memory from year to year? Our delicious non-GMO corn is growing beautifully in the field and we will harvest as soon as it's ripe! Can you guess the correct date for the first harvest? Stop by the farmhand stand and make your guess.  We will choose a random winner from all the correct answers, and that person will win a dozen ears of corn and a gift basket!  
 
 
 
 
 
If you are out in 'Sconset please stop by our vegetable truck - parked in the rotary -  and say hi to Helen! She will have the freshest farm grown vegetables + and beautiful bouquets of flowers every
Monday-Saturday from 9am-1pm.
 
 
 
 
 
Here's a new artisinal wine for us - we were so excited about it we bought every box they had! 
La Nevera Blanco
La Nevera is a fun, delicious wine produced from organically grown grapes in the renowned Rioja region. The advantages of doing a box wine in Rioja are many, not the least of which is the saving of
glass, corks and printing labels! 
This is a youthful wine that is vibrant and uncomplicated,
bright and zesty.
Its citrus and herbal aromas and flavors of pear and lemon pairs well
with chicken and seafood, particularly with spicy preparations.
Each box holds the equivalent of 4 bottles of wine,
so this is a great value, too!
