Spring and Summer CSA Memberships
Are you new to this CSA idea?  CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, and CSA's can take many forms.  Bartlett's offers these CSA's as a convenience to customers, whereby 'shares' are packed each week and picked up at the farm.  Each share is comprised of vegetables and greens that have been freshly harvested, recipes to use those veggies, plus occasional surprises.  To place your order for the 2015 Spring Greens CSA, or for our Summer CSA, go to our website. 
Create your own Easter Baskets
From baskets and candy to toys and games, you can custom-create gifts for all the Easter lovers in your house.  Smiling sheep, Wild Woolies finger puppets and tons of other cute and delicious goodies can be found near the registers. Make a unique basket this year! Plus Easter edibles are on sale - 25% off!
And Neil has changed it up a little bit!  You can get some of your old favorites, and try some new ones like White Burgundy, Sake, Tawny Port  and Ruby Port!  
The Garden Center Is Open!
