The other Saturday I had the pleasure of visiting Harvey’s Farm & Garden Center in Westborough, MA. Normally when I go to a Garden Center, I am completely ignored, offered no help, find many plants not labeled, and usually wander about in circles. What I hope to be a fun, relaxing, & rejuvenating (yes – to see some bright colors, foliage, and life can encourage the soul here in New England!) shopping trip usually turns out to be a frustrating experience. NOT AT HARVEY’S ! You are greeted, offered advice, asked specific questions related to your project(s)! They are WONDERFUL! They are HELPFUL! They are EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGABLE! Also, their plant material is in the best shape- healthy & happy (disease free!), they take great care of their plants and property. Their selection of Vegetable Transplants is amazing – You name it, they’ve got it!! If you want to start a Veggie Garden – GO HERE! I was floored! Thank you Harvey’s for a shopping experience I had always hoped for!!

I will be photographing a wedding at Hartman’s Herb Farm this June so the bride and I decided to go out on a lovely spring day to see what was in bloom or about to be in bloom.  I like to scout out locations prior to the day of shoots merely to get comfortable with my surroundings – I try not to pre-visualize things too much or else I feel like things just don’t flow.

Well, we were in a for a treat, not only is the venue beautiful, the owners are incredible too! What a great family !!! They try to do as much ‘Farm to Table’ items as possible for each event including Flowers & Veggies. If you ever need Herbs, Flowers, Perennials, Wedding/Party Venue, Dance Venue – this is it! Lynn and Carissa are so nice, welcoming and hospitable- it is clear they put as much emphasis, thought and love into an event as the host! 

If you are looking for a nice country drive head out to Hartman’s in Barre, MA to see the beautiful flowers, shop around, and look at the animals ! Call the farm if you have any questions about their farm, what they sell, they are very helpful! This place is adorable and I barely touched the surface and mainly focused on the animals-FYI!

Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays! Here are a select few photos from Natick Community Organic Farm (NCOF) from my visit this Fall! This will be the first of many blog posts about NCOF, it is in such a great location and they  have SO much to offer year round! Great place to grab some organic chicken, beef, pork and take a stroll !! They offer lots of camps during the summer and school vacations! If I were a kid I would LOVE to go here for camp!!

Drumlin Farm is worth a visit! They provide interest year round and have tons of animals! These are just a few sneak peak photos of what the farm has to offer! Don’t miss the raptors in their cages, the pigs, birds, the beautiful vegetable gardens, ponies, cows, and great staff!

They offer tons of interesting classes in their cozy education building, and miles of hiking trails !

This farm is full of fun and laughter ! My husband and I had a great time walking the trails and enjoying the fresh, autumn air !
