Bartlett’s Farm has applied for an annual license to sell wine and beer for off-site consumption.
I contacted John Bartlett to get an idea of what he’s planning out there:
We will offer wine and beer as an additional offering and are not removing
any products to make room for them.
We have approximately 7,500 square feet
of total retail area in the farm stand. We will dedicate approximately 90 square
feet of existing retail space for the sale of wine and malt beverages for
Exactly what we’ll carry is still in the works, but we want to have a nice small selection of domestic and imported wines and beers that complement the food we’re growing and cooking. We’re thinking around 12 whites, 12 reds, and a couple of sparkling in a median price range.
Our focus will be more on the wine, but there are some great craft beers out
there that people love with food so we want to serve that customer as well. We’d love to carry Cisco products.
I see this as an extension of our
existing business and also a service to our customers. My staff is really
enthusiastic about me moving forward with this and I’m working closely with
my Head Chef, Neil Hudson to put it all together.
If the Selectmen approve the license, the application will then go to the State for approval. I hope to have the license in hand by June 1st.
Co-owners Chris Morris and Michelle St. Martin, formerly of Arno’s at 41 Main, have applied to the Board of Selectmen to operate The Pit Stop year round at the Trading Post on Nobadeer Farm Road.
Michelle and Chris plan to offer “family style barbeque, southern fried chicken and all the fixin’s available by take-out or ready to go items in the hot box. Bulk delivery and on site catering is also available. Breakfast sandwiches will be served daily in the hot box starting at 7 am.”
Expected to open in April, The Pit Stop will be open daily from 7 am to 8 pm, closed on Sundays.
The Trading Post is still serving takeout Thai food on weekends, presumably until The Pit Stop takes over.
