We are currently bringing our delicious, fresh greens, radishes, and potted herbs to the Farmers’ Market. You can find us in Bridgton on Saturdays from 8am-1pm and in Norway on Thursdays from 2pm-6pm. We anticipate more greens and shelling peas will be in the farmstand in two to three weeks. The growing season has been wet and slow, but our onion and garlic crops are looking beautiful and productive. We are glad to see lots of flowers on the strawberries. Mary, our Field Manager, reminds us that we have to be “looking forward” farmers!
We are proud to carry Maine-made products that are thoughtful, useful and beautiful. Coveside Conservation makes feeding and nesting boxes for birds, bats, and insects. Each is designed with the species in mind and provides a brochure on it’s design, purpose and placement. We welcome Jim Turpin of Coveside June 22nd, 9am-12pm to talk about Coveside’s products and answer any questions we may have.
Cooking is something we love, and now we carry some of our favorite utensils! We are excited to offer Jeff Peterson’s beautiful and functional array of wooden spoons, rolling pins, and kitchen accouterment. Each piece is made in Maine from the by-product of a Maine cabinetmaker and are as durable as they are beautiful. Come check out the selection and start your collection today!
We also love our bread here at Pietree. We have so much fun trying out different recipes and styles that we feature one of our creations each week. This week our featured bread is a Sage & Cheddar Quick Bread. It is not a yeasted loaf- leavened instead with baking powder and baking soda. It is almost like a biscuit with a crumbly texture bursting with pockets of sage and cheddar to excite and please your palate.
We are excited to carry Carpe Diem Coffee this year! Carpe Diem is a Maine coffee roasting company located in Berwick, Maine. We carry one pound, whole bean bags and have a grinder on premise for your convenience. We have many varieties available from the dark and robust Thunder Bolt Blend to the subtle and smooth Sunrise Blend. The Pietree Friendship Blend is smooth and sweet and the perfect cup of coffee to share with friends after dinner.
Carpe “TIEM” tea bags are available by the cup for your sipping pleasure. There are lots of exciting flavors including, yerba mate, chai, and assorted black and herbal teas that are all unique and delicious.
