These Moth Orchids couldn't be easier to grow and they put on a beautiful display for months!  They may look fragile, but they are very hardy house plants and they thrive on neglect!

From the Kitchen
The kitchen is offering lots of new sandwiches!  
Try the Miacomet Melt or the Madaket Mushroom!
There's also farm-made fudge, including dark chocolate with cashew and white chocolate with cranberries. 
What?  You've never had Raclette?
Time to remedy that!  We've been trying to get it for months, and it finally arrived in the market yesterday, and it is beautiful!

We are thrilled to support the Friends of Nantucket Public Schools by having a team in the Spelling Bee this year! Come on out to the school this Friday night at 6:30 to see some fun community competition! From the FONPS website... The 15th Annual Community Spelling Bee is a wonderful opportunity for the community to get together in the winter and benefits the programs of the Friends of Nantucket Public Schools. Teams of three compete for the ultimate speller award and range from students to businesses to non-for-profits - and everyone gets into the act! While teams are competing, the High School Culinary Arts students put on a show of their own in the cafeteria, providing a warm spaghetti dinner for guests beginning at 5:30pm. It is a great opportunity for community members to visit the school and see what the kids are up to.
Pussy Willows are a sure sign that
spring is right around the corner!
The cut stems don't even need to go in water, but if you want to root them in water, that's ok too. 
And speaking of spring...seeds are in the Market! 
Nantucket Fresh Catch!

Are you interested in opening your house to some work and travel students? At Bartlett's Farm we have never hired students from abroad unless we have adequate housing arranged before they arrive.  
The good news is we've identified a number of bright, young qualified students we'd like to hire.
 The bad news is we don't have enough of our own housing for
all of them.
If you would be interested in opening your house
or renting out a room to a student or two participating in the J1 cultural exchange program here at the farm,
please email Laura or you can get more information from
Whitney at the registers. 
New this year - We are sending lunch specials via text
You can opt out at any time!
