Join Our Fall CSA
CSA, Community Supported Agriculture, is a program where the local farmer offers customers fresh-picked produce weekly. The customer purchases a "share" of the season's harvest in advance. Essentially, the customer is buying a "share" of the produce and then the farmer provides the shareholder with farm fresh, locally grown produce for a certain period of time. A full share typically provides a week's worth of vegetables for a family of four.

Imagine a bag filled with our famous corn, crunchy carrots, crisp lettuce, delicious tomatoes, beautiful winter squash, and healthy baby kale... That's just an idea of what you will receive in your Early Fall CSA share. Enjoy any of these 9 weeks of locally grown, freshly harvested produce. You'll also get tasty recipes for the veggies you receive each week.

Purchase the full 9 weeks and you will also receive a
$25 gift card with your first pick-up!

Back To School Stuff
Don't head back to America without some cool lunch boxes, thermoses and backpacks. The display just as you walk in the door is chock full of
colorful back to school stuff.

Eggplant? Ugggh! That was my childhood response to this vegetable. As an adult, I've learned to prepare eggplant many different ways. Ratatouille is just one of them and it is one of the most 'comfortable' of comfort foods to me. With the plethora of farm vegetables and the slightly cooler weather, it's time to make a batch!
Click here for the recipe published in our original Bartlett's Ocean View Farm Cookbook. (Available in the market)

Lobster Mats
lobster mats
These very durable door mats are made from reclaimed rope and are hand made in Maine. 500,000 pounds of rope have been reclaimed from the ocean and they've done such a good job of getting the rope out of the water, there's none left.
So these are the last lobster mats made from reclaimed rope that will be available. Get them while you can.
When they're gone, they're gone.

10/19 - Green Halloween

Time to dig out the loved and gently worn Halloween costumes from the back of the closet! Instead of buying a new costume this year, trade in your old ones at the

costume swap on Saturday October 19!

Bring those old (clean) costumes to the garden center beginning on Monday the 14th, and we will organize them and hold onto them until the swap on Saturday the 19th.

Come back on Saturday, and choose your new costume!

There is no fee to participate, and everyone is welcome on Saturday whether you have contributed or not.

Bring costumes and accessories for infants through adults and even pets!

Costume swaps mean fewer resources are used to make new product, less packaging, and less transportation of the product and
less waste going into the landfill.

Hours for drop-off are Monday, October 14 at 10am through
10am on Saturday October 13.

10/26 - 10-11 AM Pumpkin Carving in the Hayloft. Purchase a pumpkin in the market and take it up to the Hayloft to paint or carve! We'll take care of the clean-up!
