Holiday season has officially begun here at Pietree! We have packed the farmstand with many unique, locally made treasures including hard goods, books and specialty foods. Many items are handmade, one of a kind treasures such as food slabs from American Stonecraft and wooden kitchen utensils from Peterson Woodworking. We have a great selection of locally themed and printed children and cook books, clothing, hats, mittens, hand-stitched napkin and tea towels from Madder Root, beautiful coasters and magnets from Art By Alyassa, and much, much more! Specialty food items include McCrea's caramels, Sawyer honey, organic candy canes, small batch jams, Bixby Bar chocolates and Northwooods Gourmet Girl's relishes, jams, preserves and desert sauces.

We have a great selection of late fall and winter produce available in the farmstand this week. Fresh, organic cranberries from Woodward Cranberry Farm are available this week as well as eight varieties of winter squash, several varieties of potatoes, pie pumpkins, yacon, garlic, Niitaka pears, and more! We also expect to have radishes, kale and some other greens from our greenhouse this week!
From the bakery we have a great selection of both savory and sweet treats this week! Our latest creation is our Cranberry Pecan Sourdough loaf. This is a tart and nutty sourdough with a lovely crust and prominent sourdough taste- perfect toasted and smothered in butter or as a grilled sandwich stuffed with turkey and cheese. Also, for the first time, we have made a Roasted Garlic Focaccia. As winter approaches we are utilizing our storage crops, such as garlic, for flavor instead of fresh herbs like rosemary and thyme. We are really excited about our delightfully rich walnut biscotti! This biscotti has a nice crunch bursting with rich chocolate and walnuts- perfect paired with a cup of coffee or cocoa! We also have a great selection of White Wulff pies including apple, blueberry, pumpkin and more! We plan to have a varied selection of pies and breads on our shelves for the week of Thanksgiving- just in case you need some help in the kitchen this year!
