L101_Maple_3_200

Rent a 2018 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.

Give someone Fair Trade coffee beans grown in Nicaragua.

Rent a 2018 Honey Hive!

Honey-making is a season-long job for bees and beekeepers. These flower-specific honeys have a fragrance and taste distinct to each delicious honey.

Honey is shipped as it’s garnered:

  • Cranberry in Sept.

L231_Date_1_200

Rent a 2018 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!

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.

L181_Honeybell_1_200

Rent a 2018 Honeybell Tree!

A holiday gift with a harvest that says “Happy New Year”. The Minneola Tangelo or “Honeybell” is a hybrid, combining the delicate, tart taste of juicy grapefruits with the sweetness of tangerines! Grown primarily in the Indian River area of Florida, there are very few of these hybrid trees – making the fruit quite rare. Each piece of fruit is hand-picked. Often called a “Honeybell” because of the shape, it is incredibly juicy, sweet and as easy to peel as a banana. This luscious harvest is delivered at the the end of January.

  • Rent a honeybell tree for someone who would enjoy honeybells 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.

L201_rice_1_200

Rent a 2018 Wild Rice Bed!

True Wild Rice is actually a variety of grass, and very different in look and in taste from the black cultivated “wild rice” mixtures usually sold in stores. Pure, natural, uncultivated wild rice is tan in color, cooks in half the time of paddy-raised “wild rice”, and has an incomparable nutty flavor. Tribal members of the Ojibwe Lake Reservation Tribal Council will hand-harvest this uncultivated wild rice for you. Using long forked poles, the harvesters bend the rice stalks into the canoes, where the “knockers” beat the ripe rice kernels off the stalk. The rice kernels that fall into the water now become the seed for next year’s harvest.

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

L151_Cocoa_1_200

Rent a 2017 Organic Cocoa Tree!

Your 100% organic cocoa will also be naturally processed so that it has a smoother taste, lighter color and more refined aroma than commercial-grade cocoa. Because most of us only know chocolate that is packed with sugar, this organic cocoa is a taste revelation. Cocoa from Costa Rica has a distinctively chocolate flavor, with a floral bouquet. Choose Baker’s cocoa if you don’t want any organic sugar or dry milk added.

Cacao, the fruit from which chocolate is made, is the ideal agricultural commodity for the rainforest because it depends on the rainforest canopy for its survival!

The Rent Mother Nature Fair Trade Cocoa Lease meets the highest standards for social and environmental responsibility. The farmers receive fair compensation to support their families and communities and incentives to work their land wisely, while you enjoy this delicious product and help protect the rainforest of Costa Rica.

We do all the work and you get all the raves (while helping support sustainable agriculture).

Giving a friend the harvest from their own Fair Trade cocoa tree will help protect the Rainforest of Costa Rica & support a farmer’s cooperative.
