Established in early 2012, New England Olive Oil Company aims to add flavorful dimension to a kitchen staple. The tasting bar’s selection of extra virgin olive oils are crafted from fresh olives grown all over the globe, and range from mild, slightly fruity offerings such as the Arbosana to the robust, delightfully bitter Chilean Barnea. Fresh pestos, flavored balsamics, and specialty oils infused with roasted almond and white truffle round out the shop’s selection, allowing cooks to add subtle hints of flavor to a meal without having to hypnotize a chicken into thinking it’s a mushroom.
Schartner Farms has a history that stretches even longer than its annual corn maze. After immigrating to the United States in 1902, the Schartner family settled in Bolton and opened a farm. For the next century, multiple generations of the family milked cows and filled the soil with seeds to grow fruits, vegetables, and cheeseburgers. The farm became something of a local landmark, and in 2006, the town of Bolton and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts designated it an Agricultural Preservation Restriction Farm.
Today, the fourth generation of Schartners runs the farm. Aside from the signature corn maze, they invite visitors to pick apples, ride ponies, and relax on hayrides, which wind past the property's forests, fields, and ponds.
The word “bead” has multiple meanings at Bead Fiesta The Shoppe. It can mean—among other things—tiny seed beads, handmade glass beads, wooden beads, pearls, crystals, gemstones, and silver trinkets. Housed in the rustic 19th-century Cider Mill Building, the shop also stocks jewelry-making supplies, which are now considered highly valuable to pirates. To complement its wares, the venue hosts a variety of jewelry-making classes, on topics from working with precious metal clay to forging accessories from ice resin.
