The Best Christmas Shopping 

Who’s on your holiday list? A friend with impeccable style, a lover of all things food and wine, or someone who’s extra-hard to buy for? We’ve got you covered! 

For Lovers of Locally Made 

Beloved Farms and Pumpkins & More Farm Market are packed with items crafted by talented local artisans, plus a great selection of locally raised/produced meats, eggs, jams, jellies, spices, and more. Your Christmas table would look great with a handmade centerpiece and a charcuterie board made with all local eats!

For Food and Wine Fans
 

Wine and cheese are the perfect pairing! So, wrap up a gift of wine from Monkey Hollow Winery (or try their version of moonshine: Monkey Shine) and Peppers’ Ridge Winery (the Lakeview Peach is a favorite) with a selection of Steckler Grassfed Farms’ raw aged cheeses.
