L121_Coffee_1_200

Rent a 2017 Fair Trade Coffee Tree!

Give someone Fair Trade coffee beans grown in Nicaragua.

  • The gourmet coffee beans are certified organic and kosher.
  • The taste and aroma are exquisite.
  • Fair Trade encourages & teaches ecologically-sound methods of agriculture.
  • You are helping some of the poorest farmers in the world double their standard of living.

The gift starts with a personalized, parchment Lease Document and Announcement Folder, followed by Progress Reports that will glow with local color, describing the elaborate ritual involved in making your gift recipient’s coffee beans- the long journey from the mountains to their cup.

Coffee Leases cover more than one tree, since a single tree will yield only enough for one pound of finished coffee beans.

Lease a Fair Trade Coffee Tree for a friend who won’t be “seen without their caffeine”! They will receive a blend of dark & medium roasted, 100% organically grown, aromatic coffee beans from the mountains of Nicaragua. Our farmers are paid a premium so that we can offer you the “cream of the crop”.

L101_Maple_3_200

Rent a 2017 Maple Tree!

A gift of a Sugar Maple Lease which provides 100% natural organic maple syrup, will delight your recipients all year long!

  • First comes the handsome, personalized lease document. This reproduction of an 1890 U.S. Treasury “License for Sugar Producer” is printed on parchment and embossed with a gold seal.
  • Then, three lively newsletters will keep lessees updated on the activities of the sugaring crew as it snowshoes its way about the sugarbush. Maple sap is collected by connecting trees with environmentally benign tubing so that the clear, cold sap flows directly to the sugarhouse. In which – without using any chemical anti-foaming agents – we boil it down using a blazing wood fire. No petroleum fumes pollute our mountain air.
  • Transforming raw sap to syrup takes dedication, snowy walks, muscle, fire and patience. It’s a slow process to boil down 40 plus gallons of sap into one gallon of pure wood-fired syrup. Talk about reducing a sauce!
  • We do all the work and you get all the raves (while helping support America’s family farms).

 

A Sugar Maple Tree Lease is a delightfully different gift for anyone on your gift-giving list. Their tree produces delicious 100% natural and organic maple syrup made using the most environmentally-safe methods -no formaldehyde pellets in our trees, no anti-foaming chemicals in our boiling vat, and no petroleum fumes in our mountain air.

L117_Lobster_1_2002

Rent a 2017 Lobster Trap!

Next best thing to owning a fleet! We’ll set your friend’s lobster trap for any day they select. Our “pier-fresh” live lobsters are sweeter, more tender, better tasting, and just all ’round better than you can get anywhere else. No supermarket tank or restaurant can provide you with a fresher lobster.

As the delivery day nears, our lobstermen head out from sleepy harbors at dawn to check their heavy traps by pulling them up onto the pitching deck. It can take up to 50 traps to catch 6 lobsters. Then it’s back to port in the afternoon, where the lobsters are sorted, selected, packed (with seaweed), and shipped via FedEx Priority overnight. We even include lobster bibs and “how to eat a lobster” instructions.

We do all the work and you get all the raves (while helping support America’s fishermen).

Give someone lobsters from their own traps. We’ll set your friend’s lobster traps for any 7-day period they select. We’ll bait, & haul the traps; weigh, pack & ship the lobsters to arrive on the date your gift recipient chooses. These “pier-fresh” live lobsters are sweeter, more tender, better tasting, and just all ’round better than you can get anywhere else.

L124_Sheep_1_200

Rent a 2017 Sheep!

Experience the warmth, comfort, and durability of a natural wool blanket from the wool of a flock that includes your own Dorset sheep, a beloved member of a shepherd’s cooperative.

  • It all starts with the tender care we take of the sheep of your choice.
  • Sheep are first sheared in April (they get a second shearing if their fleece gets too long).
  • The pure virgin wool, nature’s premier fiber, is carefully washed -without the use of solvents, bleaches, moth-proofing or harsh chemicals- by skilled weavers.The wool is then carded, spun, woven, and napped into natural, custom-woven blankets. An heirloom that will be appreciated and enjoyed for generations.
  • Our three progress reports will keep your recipient up-to-date on the tender care of their sheep, connecting them to the land and the flock.
  • We do all the work and you get all the raves (while helping support America’s small family farms and craftsmen).

Treat a friend (or newlyweds) to the warmth and comfort of a natural, organic blanket made from their own sheep’s wool. After your gift recipient’s sheep is sheared the wool is rushed to the mill to be custom-woven into a pure, virgin wool blanket -made as nature intended with no compromise on quality, and without the use of any dyes or chemicals.

The perfectly natural way to stay warm.

L251_Pistachio_3_200

Rent a 2017 Pistachio Tree!

Share in the harvest of California “high desert”, sun-ripened (roasted and salted) pistachios – extra large and meaty with natural non-dyed shells. Our California farmer says: “We honestly believe that we produce the best-tasting and largest pistachio nuts in the world”. He is absolutely right! These pistachios have twice been judged as the “World’s Best Tasting” in blind-taste contests. Because the average tree is 12-16 feet tall and will yield 30 to 40 pounds of nuts, we will divide the harvest from each tree among a dozen tree-tenants.

  • Rent a pistachio tree for someone who would enjoy pistachios from their own tree.
  • The Lease Document is calligraphed with your recipient’s name, and comes with an Announcement Card explaining the program. Periodic Progress Reports provide facts, anecdotes and folklore about the grove. We can even send a photograph of the tree “hard at work” at blossom time.
  • We do all the work and you get all the raves (while helping support America’s family farms).

L231_Date_1_200

Rent a 2017 Date Palm Tree!

The Bible and the Koran mention dates and date palms more frequently than any other fruit. 68 feet below sea level in the 110-degree heat of the California desert, a five-acre family farm grows organic dates as in Biblical times – without any artificial chemicals, sprays, fumigants, or sulfur, and without steaming, hydrating or using preservatives.

Large, sweet and meaty, the Medjool date is a three or four bite dessert all by itself! This farm’s Medjool dates won first prize last year as the finest quality organic date grown in North America. There is no comparison to the chemically treated, steamed, water-added dates found in supermarkets.

Progress Reports will relate exotic lore & tradition as the dates progress from the “Kimri” stage through “Rutab” and harvest. They will be rushed to your recipient(s) in late October.

We do all the work and you get all the raves (while helping support America’s small family farms).

Treat a friend to certified organic medjool dates from their own date palm tree on a small California farm. These dates are grown as in Biblical times – without using any chemicals, sulfur or artificial hydration. Each plump and mouth-watering date is a 3 or 4 bite dessert all by itself!
