Thanksgiving is the time of year when families gather 'round the dinner table in lieu of their usual gatherings 'round the tire fire in the master bath. Make the most of this rare occasion with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Thanksgiving fare and fresh-picked produce at Wagon Wheel Nursery and Farmstand in Lexington.
Family-operated since 1952, Wagon Wheel Nursery and Farmstand's bountiful selection of produce and locally produced nibbles grace holiday tables with harvest-time flavor. Fresh, never-frozen turkeys ($2.99/lb.) hog the spotlight during familial gratitude-fests, daintily splashing through gravy and clumsily belly flopping onto whipped potatoes. Shoppers can bulk up cornucopias with fresh fruits and veggies, herbs, and specialty items such as whole-berry cranberry sauce ($2.99). After sliding a fresh-baked pumpkin pie ($11.99) atop the family china and mulling local apple cider ($3.99 for a half gallon) over the stove, revelers' homes will fill with the spiced aromas of autumn and a spirit of giving not witnessed since the Pilgrims' inaugural round of Secret Santa. Groupon holders should call at least six days in advance to reserve a Thanksgiving bird.
Wagon Wheel Nursery and Farmstand also houses a fully stocked deli with Boar's Head meats, sandwiches, and salads. Shoppers can wander the picturesque garden center for flowers and centerpieces, or hone still-life finger-painting skills with a loaded fruit basket.
