2013 fall & winter gift guide

Season’s Greetings from Al At this time of year, our pace slows and we reflect on the harvest. We talk about the year gone by and the year to come as we enjoy the company of family and friends and eat good food baked in our farm kitchen. I invite you to experience the flavors of summer captured in our spreadable fruits and pastries. Try some of our cookies if you don’t have time to bake yourself...or my personal seasonal favorite: fruitcake! It’s loaded with dried fruit, nuts, and enough rum to make you smile. It’s our wish at Frog Hollow Farm that your year was full of health, happiness and delicious food. Happy Holidays,

M

agic at Frog Hollow Farm occurs year-round. Fall and winter each bring their own special wizardry. By mid-October, most of the trees are shedding their leaves in preparation for a winter sleep that will bring buds in the spring. As holiday season rolls around, chill mornings blanket the ground with a gentle mist that twines through the orchard, following the dips in the dirt roads. Pears are the king of fresh fruit all the way through to the end of the year, and in the farm kitchen, our cooks busily prepare delicious whole fruit conserves and pastries to make good use of all that our fertile land has given us. This gift guide was created to help you find the right match for your friends, relatives, and customers. We’re certain our farm has something for just about everyone, whether it’s the classic match of pears and artisan cheese, a bag of crunchy wholesome granola, or a subscription to one of our beloved summer fruit programs. Take a peek and if something catches your eye that would be even better with a tweak or two, give us a call and we’ll do our best to accomodate. If you would like to place an order or have any questions, visit us online at www.froghollow.com or call us at 888-779-4511
