Thank you for being a member of The 1840 Farm Community. We hope that you’ve always felt welcome at 1840 Farm and that you feel as warmly about us as we do about you.  

In 2022, we began offering subscriptions to 1840 Farm. We created more of the content you’ve come to love and a new way to share it with you. We built a more robust community together without algorithms following us around and deciding what we see and how we can interact with each other. It was so fun to cook and bake with our subscribers all year long and invite them into the farmhouse to take a peek at the Farmhouse Kitchen.

We’d like to invite you to become a Farmhouse Friend and join in that journey. We’ll have exclusive content that subscribers will see first along with opportunities for you to become a more active part of 1840 Farm. Subscribers will be able to follow along as I remodel the farmhouse kitchen and share my DIY successes and failures along the way.

We’ll also encourage our subscribers to become recipe testers so that they can help us to improve new and existing recipes. Our recipe testers will see recipes that haven’t been shared anywhere else. We’ll incorporate their ideas and feedback into the published recipes and let them help decide which photos we use to illustrate them. Those recipes will be used to fill our monthly newsletters and the pages of our digital publications and print editions which are being designed this year and ready to share in 2023.

Want to see one of our digital recipe booklets? You'll find one for One Pan Creamy Orzo with Chicken and Spinach right here.

We hope that our new paid subscriptions will allow us to continue creating great content to share with you and help cover the increasing costs of supporting our blog. Don’t worry, subscriber or not, you’ll always be welcome at 1840 Farm and we’ll have plenty of recipes and ideas to share with you.

 

We are proud to offer our content ad-free and to promise never to share your personal information. We hope that you'll love what you see and consider becoming a paid subscriber to support the creation of new content and to help cover the costs of running our blog without ads.

 You can learn more about our different subscriptions levels by visiting our blog. Have questions about our subscriptions? Send us a message and and we’ll be happy to help you to decide which level is just right for you. We have our fingers crossed that you’ll become one of our Early Birds and that we’ll be sharing amazing new content with you in 2022 and beyond!

P.S. - If you're interested in paying your Farmhouse Friend subscription monthly ($5 per month), becoming a Next Door Neighbor ($2 per month), or just signing up for a FREE account to be a member of our 1840 Farm Community, you can do all of that on our blog by clicking here.

Everyone is welcome at 1840 Farm. We invite you to become a member of our community so that you can browse our recipes, stop for a visit in our Mercantile Shop, and see what’s going on here at the farm. If you use them, be sure that you follow along on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest to make sure that you never miss a new post.

Have questions? Send us a message and we'll be happy to help. We can't wait to bake and cook with you all year long!

 

Materials

Prewashed fabric, cording, thread

Our Styles and Sizes

All of our coiled fabric pieces are made by hand here at 1840 Farm.  Each fabric strip is torn by hand before being combined with other complimentary fabrics and then wrapped around a length of cording, joining the fabrics as we go.  The fabric wrapped cord is then coiled and stitched together using a zigzag stitch on my sewing machine.  I continue to wrap the coil and shape each item as it is stitched.

Each piece has its own unique color pattern and slight variation in shape.  Because every piece is handmade, each one is a true original.  Our handmade baskets display the raw edge of the fabrics used to create it.  They are handmade in our non-smoking farmhouse.  

I make our fabric items using the same technique my Great Grandmother used over 50 years ago.  She lovingly transformed worn out clothing into useful household items that were used in their New England farmhouse.  While her items were made purely for utility purposes, it is my goal to create beautiful handmade items that can serve a useful purpose in your home.

Each basket in our Collection comes with a hand signed product tag that includes the date that the basket was finished.  Each basket is numbered and displayed in our photo gallery.

Our fabric items can be cleaned by spot cleaning or washing in the gentle cycle of your washing machine.  Gently reshape baskets or trivets while still damp and allow to air dry.  Overturning a damp basket on top of a bowl will ensure that it retains its shape while drying.

Trivets are not fire or flameproof.  They are constructed of cording, fabric, and thread.  They should not be placed in the microwave, oven, or directly over an open flame or hot burner.  We find them to be an excellent buffer between a hot cooking pan and our kitchen counter.  As they are made using natural materials, they will eventually conduct some heat, especially when used under extreme conditions.  Care should be taken to ensure that they are not damaged and that the surfaces beneath them are adequately protected.

We also make custom pieces to order.  Contact us if you have questions or would like to place a custom order. We would love to work together to make a beautiful piece just for you.

We hope to be sending something special from our farmhouse to your house soon!
