April is Free Re-potting Month!
Starting Saturday, you can bring out your overgrown and root-bound houseplants and we will re-pot them for free
with the purchase of a new pot!
 And our Farm Grown Organic Herbs have been spotted in the market!  English Thyme, Lemon Thyme, Sage, Oregano are available now, and more are still tucked away all snug in their greenhouses. We will bring them out when they are ready to face the elements!
Time to start seeds! And we are carrying your favorite brands! We are in that magical time of "6-10 weeks before last frost" so if you don't have your garden planned, it's definitely time to start!
This is Not a Joke...

Wine Sales Are Back

(Starting Saturday April 1)

Our wine selection (curated by Leah Mojer) places an emphasis on small, dynamic growers and producers who reflect the values and methods with which we farm our land and interact with our community. 

New this year - look for labels with colored borders to indicate the type of growing and producing practiced by the vineyard!
Easter Gifts and Accessories
Our gift manager Kate has found some delightful items to celebrate Easter with this year! Wonderful gifts that encourage creativity, tasty treats from Hammond's and Eco-friendly Easter eggs and grass. Let the farm help you make this Easter holiday one to remember.

The calendar may say SPRING, but the thermometer didn't get the memo!  It's still feels like we need a fire in the fireplace, and
are just what you need to get that fire going!  
Find them near the registers!
