There's still plenty of time to get your trees, wreaths and decorations!
Having trouble choosing gifts? Look in the market for signs that say "Great Gift!"
Need some gift ideas? Bartlett's Farm Gift Cards are always appreciated.
And for the cook? How about our new farm cookbook? It's full of gorgeous photography and 75 mouthwatering recipes for every season of the year.
We are offering pre-made gift baskets this year, too! They are all wrapped and ready to give and are in the market. If you own a small business, these baskets might be perfect as employee gifts!
The Poinsettia isn't the only Christmas plant!

Stocking Stuffers
I know it's hard to believe, but we still have tomatoes - they should be on the shelves right up until Christmas. There are plenty of farm-grown winter veggies from our fields, too. Our squashes, potatoes, onions, beets, turnips, broccoli and cauliflower are all great for roasting and adding to soups and stews.
And if you have a juicer, try the
beets juiced with a little lemon and an apple or a pear.
Soooo delicious and really good for you. (Fresh beet juice will help mitigate the effects of all those great Christmas cookies and treats!)
Don't forget to visit the NHA's Festival of Trees at the whaling museum. It's a great activity for out of town guests. Tremendous creativity is displayed in all the trees! Bartlett's tree is located at the entrance to Gosnold Hall on the left.
