Rachel Amaral

An island fan. A magenta fan. A photography fan.

These could be three different people but in truth, it describes one person in particular at Bartlett’s Farm...Rachel Amaral.

Beginning with the farm in the summer of 2009, Island native Rachel has taken turns in both the market and the registers before finding her true home in the Garden Center.

When asked about the part of the job that brings her joy, she describes the first hour of the day in the garden center. Coming in early to open and set up the ideal presentation for potential customers includes radio silence and Zen time. Once the day has begun full swing, it’s bringing a customer from start to finish with their plants that makes it all worthwhile.

If the photo was not a big enough hint, Rachel spends her days off the farm with a camera firmly in hand. From capturing family moments with a portrait session or a bride on her wedding day, she will be found taking the photos or editing them. Farm photography included.
