Healthy living, like catching a really fast pig, requires balance, discipline, and a lack of grease. Move toward a healthier existence with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of local produce, homemade baked goods, and gourmet gifts at Mann Orchards in Methuen.
Mann Orchards has stocked fresh food and homemade baked goods for more than 130 years, helping herbivores decorate plates with a wide range of farm-fresh produce that includes peaches, tomatoes, and more than 15 varieties of apples. Meanwhile, meat-eaters can satiate their cravings for succulent sustenance with a selection of marinated meats provided by a local butcher and animal protein packer. Relive childhood pleasures by biting into chocolate chip cookies, just one of Mann's many homemade confections, or feast on freshly baked scones or wedges of homemade strawberry rhubarb pie. The McIntosh collection gift basket showcases 13–16 pieces of licentious fruit and freshly made fruit bread, cheese, crackers, and candy ($35).
Although Mann Orchards has steadily expanded since its inception in 1877, it has retained its rustic, yet cozy atmosphere. Take a break from shopping and grab a fresh quiche ($4.29) from the lunch menu or sip on a cup of café-brewed coffee and recline by the fieldstone fireplace to ponder how many Santas you could cram inside.
- There is nothing like the apple pie from Mann's. It's the perfect balance - flaky crust, soft (but not too soft) apples, and sweet, tart and tangy. Yum. – Traci K., Yelp, 9/27/10
- The store and atmosphere are above average and produce is fresh. You can sit and have a cup of coffee too to soak up the ambiance. – Laurin D., Insider Pages
