Stationed a safe distance away from the crowded city center, Easteleigh Farm has kept bygone eras alive since the early 1900s in Framingham. Current ownership converted Eastleigh back to a dairy operation in the early 2000s, and visitors have reaped the benefits ever since. During stops at the on-site store, visitors find fresh-from-the-farm products, including raw milk, cheeses, eggs, and honey. Even the farm's land exudes a high level of verdure: instead of crop-dusting the property with protein powder, Eastleigh uses all-natural nutrients such as fish oil to keep the land healthy. Visitors can see just how healthy the bounty is, too, during tours and hayrides around the farm.
Professional bartenders teach in classrooms set up as fully functioning bars. The facilities present lifelike conditions for students to learn skills such as the proper shake and pour for a variety of cocktails, muddling raw ingredients, and getting the right amount of head on a draft beer. Courses also cover the technical elements of bartending, which may include setting up drink stations, understanding liquor laws and board-of-health requirements, and operating payment systems that accept both credit cards and gold ingots.

The sartorial pros at Komal's Custom Tailors and Clothiers craft and fit men’s and women’s bespoke suits, jackets, shirts, dresses, and tuxedos to match each client's frame and taste. Choosing from more than 2,000 fabrics from global brands such as Royal Oaks and Ermenegildo Zegna, tailors outfit shoulders in swank jackets ornamented with hand-sewn buttons or tuxedos that keep men looking sharp while standing on top of nearby wedding cakes. Fittings in the outfitter's Framingham storefront grant the tailors the opportunity to capture all information needed, and appointments scheduled in patrons’ homes or offices accommodate busy schedules or those who need final approval from judgmental family pets. Kaleidoscopic ties and accessories complete fetching ensembles, and gift certificates and tuxedo rentals sail into special events when needed
The journey from confusion to organization doesn't have to be a long one. Often enough, it's the length of one tiny strip of metal?the staple that holds a school paper together, or attaches a cover letter to a r?sum?. Staples doesn't carry staples exclusively, of course, but for 28 years, they've aspired to create that same sense of effortless order. Their library of products covers everything from pencils and fire extinguishers to all-in-one machines and facility supplies, all of which aim to make jobs easier.
The technology aisles feature more advanced gear: cameras, phones, label makers, tablets, and laptops from popular brands. Their Copy & Print Centers churn out professional documents, business cards, photo gifts, and more. And, though Staples' focus is work, the stores can also furnish break rooms with chairs and coffeemakers.
