Volante’s is thrilled to have become your one stop shop this holiday season. Now that we carry wonderful and fresh local food year round in addition to our traditional Christmas trees, Poinsettias and decorations for the home we can be the easy way you complete your to do lists this week.
We still have hundreds of trees to choose from and are getting fresh deliveries of flowering plants for the weekend. Bunched branches, wreaths, lights, ornaments and garland are all still available in our greenhouse trim-a-tree shop as well.
There are many beautiful ornaments and gift items to choose from in our trim a tree shop and farmstand, many handmade locally as well as cookbooks from local authors like Amy Traverso’s The Apple Lovers Cookbook and Sweet Basil Restaurant’s Dave Becker’s newest cookbook STEWED.
Of course a a gift of food is always appreciated, which is why we are happy to offer gift cards for sale online and in the store. Additionally we have designed a variety of fruit baskets and local and specialty gift baskets for a quick and thoughtful gift option. They can also be ordered online for in store pick or from the cashiers.
We are also happy to suggest the gift of education this Christmas. We have just announced Volante’s Hearty Winter Cooking Class with Chef Todd. Slated for January 19th from 6-8 pm, Todd will lead a small group through the preparation of 5 Hearty Winter dishes. Tickets are $50 per person and may be purchased by calling the farm and following the voice prompts at 781-444-2351.
Chef Todd has also released his Christmas Menu. Like his Thanksgiving Menu, it will consist of large portion side dishes available for ordering prior to the holidays for pick up. All orders will need to go directly through Todd so that he can be sure you are getting the amount and dishes you wish, but please check out his offerings here. Many of them will be familiar but a few new ones are in there as well like appetizer sized Beef Wellingtons, Garlic and Cheese Puffs, and Spanakopita.
He will surely be sampling some of them in the stand over the next week, so you can try before you buy and keep our savory side dishes in mind to take some little bit of stress out of your holiday planning. He will take orders through 5 pm on Friday the 21st for pickup by 5 pm on Christmas Eve.
Since you might let us take care of your side dishes, maybe pies and baked goods as well, consider taking on the meat course yourself. We are very pleased to offer a special Holiday Meats Order service for our customers this season. If there is a cut you have been dying to try or a traditional item you have trouble getting a hold of, see if we can help you out with our Brandt Farm Prime Beef Tenderloin or Bone In Rib Roast. We are taking special orders on the following products through next Thursday, December 20. If there is something not on the list already please ask us, we may be able to get it for you. Many of these items are by order only, but we will have some interesting meats in the freezer and refrigerator so be sure to see what is new when you stop in.
Likewise the kitchen and deli are ready to take your orders for catering platters. There is a wide selection of choices from cold cut platters, sandwich patters, and fine cheese plates. see our menu for more and direct orders and questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
If there is anything else we can help you with this holiday season, please let us know. It has been a very exciting and eventful year for us and we have to thank you for helping us realize this new level of success. Happy Holidays to you and your family from all of us at Volante Farms.
