Around the Farm and In the Market
Thanks to the mild weather, we are still enjoying freshly harvested organic greens - mesclun, baby arugula and baby spinach - for a little while longer.
Many of us are gearing up for holiday baking - and we have what you need. King Arthur brand flour is what we use in our kitchen, and that's what we have on the shelves for you. Bags are from 2-10 lbs. Chocolate chips, baking chocolate, spices, and sugar are stocked up and ready for you to use when you make your grandmother's famous chocolate cookies!
Having trouble choosing gifts? Look in the market for signs that say "Great Gift!" Kate has picked out some wonderful choices for you!
Need some gift ideas? Bartlett's Farm Gift Cards are always appreciated.
And for the cook? How about our new farm cookbook? It's full of gorgeous photography and 75 mouthwatering recipes for every season of the year.
We are offering pre-made gift baskets this year, too! They are all wrapped and ready to give and are in the market. If you own a small business, these baskets might be perfect for employee gifts!
And if you have relatives in far-away places, we will custom decorate and ship a Nantucket-style wreath for you. In order to guarantee timely shipping, the deadline for shipping wreaths is Monday, December 12.
Holiday Decorating!
We have plenty of decorations for the whole holiday season.
From trees and custom decorated wreaths, to poinsettias and amaryllis!
We're open until 6pm, so you can some out and shop for your live or cut Christmas tree after work! Our helpful staff will help you choose your tree, cut the trunk and tie it on to your car!
Wreaths, greens, trees, poinsettias and other holiday plants are all in the market!
