 Fall in Love with Fall...

"Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor,
summer an oil painting, and autumn a mosaic of them all"

-Stanley Horowitz

 
 
 
 
Although we hate to see summer go, there are so many things we look forward to doing when fall comes around. Don't wait! To experience fall in full effect, check out Our-

Plant a Fall Garden

So many options in the Garden Center to
plant a beautiful fall garden, gorgeous window boxes or decorate the porch with lots of pretty fall flowers, gourds and pumpkins

 
 
 
 
 
Try some New Wines

Try a light red with that roasted chicken instead of your usual white. How about a french cider with that roast pork? A fan of bigger bolder reds? We have those too. We like wine over here, but we don't like to spend a lot for it. So, we carry OVER 30 awesome, yummy reds, whites, and ciders for $15 dollars and under. These are no swill mind you, many are organic, small producer and down right scrumptious.  
 
 
 
 
 
Get Your Roast On!

Our farm grown potatoes are plentiful and perfect for roasting. Olive oil, salt, pepper, some farm grown herbs and a hot oven are all that's needed for perfect potatoes every time!
 
 
 
 
 
Farm Grown
Squash Everything!

 
 
 
 
 
Make Hot Cocoa 

Nothing better than hot cocoa on a cool fall night. We love this organic mix from Equal Exchange. Crafted using organic cacao grown by the farmers of CONACADO co-operative in the Dominican Republic, organic sugar cane from small-scale farmers in Paraguay, and organic milk powder from Organic Valley dairy co-op in the U.S.
 
 
 
 
 
News From
Nantucket Fresh Catch

Jeff says, "Swordfish is super fresh & great this time of year. Coming from Canadian waters, the fish have a short trip to shore, and that's a good thing."
 
 
 
 

Fresh Catch hours are Wednesday to Sunday, 10 to 6 but don't fret! They have been stocking the meat cooler with fresh Salmon Fillets, Swordfish and Lobster Meat.
 
 
 
 
 
Scenes from the Fruit Table
Pears and Apples are in full force! 
Comice Pears, Anjou Pears, Seckle Pears, Quince, Apples, Apples and more Apples!
 
 
 
 
Why do We Love Local?
Carlson Orchards Heirloom Apples are grown with love and care in Harvard, Massachusetts, and picked fresh from the tree and shipped direct to the Farm

We are long-time friends and supporters of Carlson Orchards from Harvard, Mass. Carlson represents a combination of excellent growing standards and practices, producing premium quality fruit that is more than worth the wait every year.

1 package Tates GF Ginger Zinger Cookies
1/4 cup melted, unsalted butter
2 tbsp dark brown sugar
1 large egg white



Filling:
2 cups pureed winter squash

Directions

Crust:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

In a bowl, combine the ginger snap crumbs, butter, and brown sugar and blend well. Transfer to a 9-inch pie pan, and press into the bottom and up the sides with your fingers. Place another 9-inch pie pan on top of the crust and press firmly to smooth and pack the crust. (Some of the crust may spill over the edges of the pan.)

Bake until golden, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool. Brush the crust with the egg white. Refrigerate, tightly covered, for one hour before using.

Filling:
Mix sugar, cinnamon, salt, ginger and cloves in small bowl. Beat eggs in large bowl. Stir in pumpkin and sugar-spice mixture. Gradually stir in evaporated milk.

Pie:
Preheat oven to 425 F. Pour filling into cooled pie crust and bake on a cookie sheet for 15 minutes. Lower temp to 350 and bake for 25 minutes or until knife inserted comes out clean. Place on wire rack and let cool.
