We built the barn on our property in 2007 to house a garden shop, rental Lodging and Jan’s Landscaping Services business. We opened our Blue Tulip Garden Boutique in July 2009—changing merchandise regularly, depending on the season—to offer customers a wide variety of unique Maine-made art, garden décor, handcrafted gifts and cards.
After 12 rewarding and successful years serving hundreds of customers annually, we closed our retail business at year-end 2020. Turning 77 and 75, respectively, in 2021, we both would like to have more free time to travel, see our children and 7 grandchildren, and experience more of the things we moved to Maine to enjoy.
Farmers Market, Farm Stand Sales
Though we no longer have a retail shop or regular retail hours, we will continue to sell Jan’s vegetables, herbs and cut flower bouquets from June through early October at the Ocean View Grange Farmers Market, just one mile away in Martinsville. Rosemary will also be there selling jam, relish, honey, maple syrup, soap, candles, note cards and her own knit and fabric creations.
We invite customers to join us in our gardens throughout the growing season to select their own produce. There’s no better way to assure you that “just picked, right out of the garden” freshness!
If our flag is flying on our corner, you may also stop by the farm table outside our barn to select produce from what’s been recently picked.
Our list of home-grown vegetables and herbs includes:
- Beans, Beets, Broccoli
- Cabbage, Carrots
- Celery, Cucumbers
- Eggplant, Kale
- Leeks, Lettuce, Onions
- Peas, Peppers, Dutch Potatoes
- Pumpkins, Radishes
- Spinach, Squash
- Tomatoes, Zucchini

You will also find Rosemary’s knit and fabric Blue Tulip Creations at locally scheduled craft fairs and at Joann Hoppe’s Blueberry Moose shop on Main Street in Thomaston throughout the year.
