Frames from Nantucket: Bartlett’s Farm

by Landis Carey on July 5, 2011

Sunday morning we set off  for a bike ride with no particular endpoint in mind, except the the notion that we wanted to explore the the western end of the island. We headed to the end of our street and instead of turning right to head west, we mistakenly turned left. We wound around, back into town, and then south where we found ourselves at the gates of Bartlett’s Farm, which we learned was the island’s oldest and largest family-owned farm: The Barlett family has been farming the same land since the family arrived on the island in the early 1800′s.

Of course we fell in love and wanted to bring home much more than we did—we then remembered we were on bikes—so we opted for pumpkin seeds, coffee filters and the sweetest sugar snap peas we’re ever tasted.

We journeyed on in the overcast day, exploring the beaches on the southern part of the island. Our cyclocross bikes came in handy as we took them off the main roads onto the sandy and gravel-covered paths.
