Christmas Wreaths, Poinsettias, and Cookies
It’s time to dress your home in Christmas cheer, and we’ve got plenty of wreaths, poinsettias, and cookies to choose from! Plus some handmade ornaments for your home or office as well as holiday treats.
You can order your holiday pies and dinners through December 18. And don’t forget about Greg’s homemade sugar cookies that we’ve got in our market every day—he’s got lots of fun holiday shapes that he’ll be rolling out right through Christmas Eve.
Homestead Featured in “Perfect Pie” Article
We were thrilled when we got a call last month from Cheryl Makin of the Bridgewater Courier News, who said she wanted to feature Homestead in her article, “Where to Buy a Perfect Pie in Central Jersey”!
Our farm market was one of the top three recommended places to buy great pies, and we consider it an honor to be in that group! Here’s where you can read the article: http://bit.ly/PerfectPieArticle
Green Initiative Compliance
The final piece of the puzzle is in place—Homestead is now totally ready for the Lambertville Environmental Commission’s single-use plastic bag ordinance that goes into effect on January 1, 2020. We will be replacing the old single-use plastic shopping bags with heavy-duty bags that can be reused at least 125 times. They’re made with recycled content using 50 percent green energy, contain no heavy metals, and they’re made in the USA.
As we mentioned on our Facebook page, in November we replaced the Styrofoam containers we used for our Market Meals with eco-friendly, compostable containers.
And of course, we still carry our reusable washable t-shirt bags and these charming handmade heavy-duty recycled feed bag shopping bags with riveted handles—both are available in our farm market!
We’re Open Through December 24!
Homestead Farm Market will be open right through 2:00 p.m. on Christmas Eve. We’ll continue to have the fresh produce, breads, homemade desserts, prepared dishes and Market Meals (yes, Roz and Greg will still be hard at work all month!) as well as your favorite frozen and refrigerated items.
