The search for a cactus at Running Brook Farms

By Marjorie Tietjen.

The other day I was on a mission to buy a cactus or succulent for my cousin who is chair bound. I immediately thought of Running Brook Farms, which specializes in these plants, among other useful products. I had bought interesting specimens from there before, so I was confident I would also have luck this time.

When I entered the large sales room adjacent to the greenhouse I was pleasantly surprised to see everything rearranged. Front and center is a really neat rustic Cafe bar. The cafe addition is not quite open all the way yet, but at the end of January it should be up and running. An open house is scheduled for around that time.

The cafe will serve coffee, tea, cocoa, cider, and baked goods. I am looking forward to when the cafe opens so I can enjoy a cup of coffee and their friendly company. I forgot to ask the name of the woman who’s running this, but I could have talked to her for hours. She is so interesting and informative!

The herbs they grow and sell are all organic….so many healthy products to choose from. CBD products are one of their specialties.

As you can see above they have quite a few succulent and cactus specimens to choose from.

I love the way everything is displayed so nicely with such an organic feel.

These are the three cute little guys I ended up bringing home. They look so healthy and I can’t wait to transplant them into larger pots.

Come and browse their exotic plants and fun and useful products and gifts. Let’s make this inviting place a new hangout!
