Bartlett's Farm Holiday Gift Guide
Our Farm Staff share their favorite gifts to give and receive, all available on the Farm —ensuring that everyone on your list receives the field-tested best.
Constanza (Caep intern) says, "Our Myrtle Topiaries are a great holiday gift! They prefer indirect sunlight, ideal for winter, but can go outside in warmer months. They also have a wonderful, lemony scent when pruned. I just love the smell!" 
"Definitely Chocolate. Read the description, it's on point! Just the right amount of salty, crunchy potato chip flavor. I would give it as a stocking stuffer, or along side a bottle of bubbles!"-
Whitney Butler- Customer Service Manager
"I am a big fan of Gift Baskets. A nice assortment of honeys, crackers and cookies like Effie's Oatcakes or Klara's Shortbread and I'm a happy camper."
Nick Delacruz- Produce Supervisor
(If you're sending something to the west coast, order by 12/13!)

 "The scents of the Thymes candles we sell are incredible.
They are very natural smelling.  We did a Yankee swap one year with candles and it was great because every time I lit that candle, Christmas and family came to mind"
Leah Mojer - Wine and Cheese Manager

"Chocolate Turtles are a perfect stocking stuffer or as a treat for your favorite neighbor"
"Put a bowl of this bark out for your guests. It's as beautiful to look at as it is to eat!"
"I love getting great reads for Christmas. The Nathaniel Philbrick books would make a great trio! Throw in a new holiday mug for sipping hot beverages while reading and I'm good to go."
Alison at the Farmstand

"Wine is always a welcome gift for your host and hostess. We have lots of reasonably priced wines, like Pine Ridge Chenin Viognier and Luccarelli Primitivo that are also very delicious!"- Hilary Newell, Marketing Director

Kate, our Gift Manager says, "This over sized blanket was perfect for laying out on the beach in the Summer, and now it keeps me nice and toasty on my couch! Great also because we can ship them anywhere from the Farm!"
Mj, our Market Manager, has a soft spot for this Ghee. "Give the gift of good fat! Nothing isn't improved by a little griddle-time or saute in this luxurious Ghee. Your Sunday brunch will never be the same."
Christmas Cookies...made by Cheryl our farm kitchen...yum
Poinsettias and greens to tuck into your window boxes and containers are all in the market! 

It's the time of year when more and more things are going on sale!  Spring bulbs, pottery and statuary are all 50% off, and lots of holiday items will be marked down starting this weekend.
