As the first layer of snow covers the ground, the barn gets filled with the sweet aromas of pine and balsam. Dried flowers are brought down from the drying loft, pine cones are collected and cured by the wood stove, and our local hunter drops by with the first turkey feather plumes. I can't help but start to get excited about winter and the holiday season!
Once the farm was put to rest, the spring bulbs planted in the greenhouse, and the barn cleaned after a busy end to the cut flower season, it was time for Reg and I to take a break. After spending a few weeks catching up on our daily lives, we got started on our next seasonal project — wreath season! At the beginning of this month, we started scouting New England for boughs and foraged ingredients. By last week, wreath bases full of juniper (loaded with beautiful blue berries this year!), princess pine, cedar, and balsam started stacking up along the farm benches waiting to be decorated with our unique ingredients—most of them grown and dried at the farm!
All of our wreaths and kissing balls are hand crafted with locally foraged and farm grown ingredients making them unique for your home or office. Fresh USA grown flowers are available in table centerpieces if ordered in advance!
- Open for the holidays: Nov. 24–Dec. 23
- HOURS: Wednesday–Sunday 9 AM–4 PM (closed Monday & Tuesday)
- Wreaths, Kissing Balls & Table arrangements available, quantity may be limited.
For fresh flower arrangements please order in advance.
- For Special Orders please inquire by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
or by phone: (603) 348-2223 (order forms are also available at the farm).
The most commonly asked question of my dad and I is “what do you do during the winter?”. While this year Reggie is off to backpack in Chile for the second time (much overdue after 3 winters here), I am staying in the area working in the pub at Cannon Mountain, opening the farm for the holiday, caring for the greenhouse and grounds, booking weddings, and updating the website. There are so many things that need to get done for the 2018 growing season! Due to the ski season starting the very day we open, I found it necessary to hire someone to help make wreaths, welcome customers, and watch the stand on the weekends. So I want to introduce our new team member—meet Allie! After interviewing some excellent candidates, Allie’s drive, education, experience, and flexible schedule made her the best pick. I am also very excited for her to be a part of the cut flower season next summer! If you are stopping by the stand for the holidays, please make sure to welcome her to the team!
I look forward to seeing our new and returning customers this season! Stay in the loop by signing up for our mailing list and be the first to know our 2018 announcements including our flower CSA registration and design workshops!
Warmest wishes for your holiday season,
