Braise your Standards

Of course there will be delicious samples!

Talk begins at 10am in the Hayloft.

There is no admission fee.

Time to Sign Up for Cheesy Fun!

Dr Hinson's amazing creation from 2010's contest.

You might be interested to know that Bartlett's Grilled Cheese Invitational is not the original and we got this great idea from Tim Walker, the originator and instigator of the national event. Because he thinks we are cool, he has given us his blessing to hold our own version of this wacky event.
However, his version is even wackier!
The 2nd 8th annual (yes, you read that right) Original Grilled Cheese Invitational will take place on April 11 in Los Angeles, CA. To see more about this event, click here!

The Original

What's going on around the farm?


The Garden Center greenhouse is opening on March 14th!

Pansies and primroses are already in the market. Watch for small blooming perennials for your spring windowboxes.

The Garden Guru is also sending out Guru emails every few weeks. Sign up below if you'd like to receive them.


Dave's crew is picking mesclun and baby arugula every day. It seems like most folks on the farm love the arugula served with shavings of parmeggiano-reggiano and drizzled with honey. Try it! You won't believe how well the savory, salty and sweet flavors marry in your mouth.


We have added a new line of organic coffee beans! Great package, delicious flavors, AND there's a whole espresso bean selection that you can grind right in the market!
Jim's Organic Coffees, straight from Cape Cod! Check it out!

And while you are here, warm up with a cup of Bartlett's Blend, Nantucket Coffee Roasters special farm blend.
Jim's Coffee and Nantucket Coffee Roasters...
two great local choices!

Succulent Citrus!
Kishu Mandarins
They are the size of a walnut, seedless, easy to peel, with a very high natural sugar content.
The perfect lunchbox treat!
Minneola Oranges

Nicknamed "Honeybell" because of its bell shape, the Minneola is a cross between a tangerine and a grapefruit. Its large size and slightly elongated "neck" make it easy to recognize. The most popular of the tangelos, seedless Minneolas are brimming with sweetly tart juice.

Clemenvilla Mandarins
The thin rind is a distinctive reddish-orange and is easily peeled to yield a fine textured, dark orange flesh. The fruit is juicy with a sweet, rich flavor that makes a wonderful juice either in combination with other varieties or on its own.

Find them all in the produce case!
