'A Tomato A Day' 
That was way before anybody wrote a book about him!

Those darned oxen! Every time some child finds them, they go off and hide again!  They could be anywhere where customers are allowed to go...in the garden center, in a cooler, on a shelf, up high, down low, who knows!  So if your child finds one of them, bring that rascal bovine up to the customer service desk and get your reward!

Meet Matt Notarangelo

Matt started with the farm in April 2016 and works in the kitchen as a prep cook.  Hailing from Southboro, MA, a 2010 job offer from another business brought Matt to the island every year, and this is his third year at Bartlett's. 

Matt has been singing for 6 years and is a huge fan of karaoke nights hosted at various spots around the island! He also participated in Nantucket Dreamland's Nantucket's Got Talent show this past winter. 

Favorite artists include Sam Smith, John Legend, and Alicia Keys!

What he enjoys about working at Bartlett’s Farm is getting to meet new people from different cultures and  backgrounds.

When asked to describe the island: fantasy island, whole another world, peaceful, and it's like living in a postcard.
