Our little family (which includes myself, my husband & our son, along with two cats) lives beside a beautiful pond deep in the Maine woods; which brings much inspiration. It has always been a place of peace, art, creating and growing!
For a few years, The Sugar Tree Cafe was a vegetarian food cart, but the idea for what it would become started many years ago with growing fresh herbs for teas at Mothers Moon, (which itself began as something humble, and then grew into something more). Berries from my land, apples from my tree, veggies in my garden or from local farms became a part of my Kids'
Gardening and Kids' Kitchen Programs, and I started creating new
recipes. Soon after, shaping wooden bread boards, spoons, and rolling pins became a such a joy for me. Add in wool felt and other art that were my passion of my Storyteller Moon experiences., and you have The Sugar Tree! With fresh
foods & baked goods; loose leaf blended teas, Maine Artisan rolling pins, cheese boards
& spoons; wool felt veggie toys & art; children's gardening & cook
books, as well as seeds and seedlings in season. . As you will note, most of the goods
for sale have been created by myself complemented by those of my family, but some are selectively chosen natural and/or fairly traded products from
fellow small businesses.
