When the Connors established their farm in 1904, they did so on land that already had 300 years worth of farming invested in its soil. At the time, the Connors ran a truck farm?meaning, rather than stuffing parsnips and carrots into mailing envelopes, they trucked all their crops to Boston to be sold. In the mid-1950s, the family adjusted to the changing times, and began selling sweet corn from a roadside stand right on the property. The new plan proved successful: visitors have flocked to the farm en masse ever since.
Today, with the help of its 140 acres of fertile land, Connors Farm continues to fill bellies with the freshest vegetables and fruits available. No, really: the family only sells corn on the day it is picked. In addition to cultivating a long list of crops?the farm produces tomatoes, strawberries, squash, and pumpkins, among others?the family maintains an equally lengthy index of family attractions. That includes an annual cornfield in fall, as well as a peach festival with music, hayrides, and face painting.
Regardless of the season, the experts at J. Mosca Landscaping & Design have plenty of outdoor tasks to keep them busy. As the spring sun starts to shine, landscapers clean up damage from winter storms and yeti mosh pits before seeding lawns and setting up irrigation systems. They also stop by during the dog days of summer to trim the grass and mulch flowerbeds. Once the weather turns cold, the techs shift gears, trading hoes for shovels in order to clear walkways of drifted snow. In addition to seasonal tasks, the experts also know their way around construction; aided by their own fleet of earth-moving M-Series Bobcats, their sure-handed masons can craft walkways, patios, retaining walls, and fireplaces no matter the time of year.
Thayer Nursery, a six-acre, family-owned farm, has been showering the community with exceptional plants and gardening products since 1965. Thayer Nursery guarantees that their kiln-dried firewood contains no stowaway bugs and has moisture levels below 25%. Unlike regular seasoned wood, kiln-dried wood spends three days de-liquifying in a 200-degree kiln before it is stored safely in an element- and Hamburgler-protected barn. Because of this extra-special care, the wood burns cleaner, hotter, and longer, and it doesn't require a PhD in Boy Scouting to light. Kiln-fired logs also contain less chimney-fouling creosote. In addition to fire fuel, Thayer offers a bevy of bouncing baby nursery plants such as three-gallon potted roses ($22.50) and eight-inch mums ($9 each). Shrewd shrub-tenders can prepare their greenery for winter snows with a 40-pound bag of HollyTone fertilizer ($32) from Thayer's complete line of garden supplies. Thayer Nursery has an extensive selection of organic gardening materials and homegrown advice about sustainable growing practices. Even regular, flesh-toned thumbs can take on a Kermit hue with The Gardener's A to Z Guide to Growing Organic Food ($24.95).
