(MILLIS, MASS., NEW ENGLAND USA) -- Life is good at Tangerini's Spring Street Farm in the pleasant southwest suburban Boston suburb of Millis, MA. Beautifully grown plants and flowers for sale, farm fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as a small gift area with antiques, painted furniture, gifts and collectibles, and an ice cream stand amidst expansive farmland provide a respite for allwalks of life. Spectacular sunsets gracing those open lands add a dimension that makes one seem like they are somewhere in the midwest when the reality is the Boston city line is just a half hour away.
A family run business in the best sense, Tangerini's proves that simplicity yields a wonderful quality of life. No matter what time of day, it's evident that the Tangerinis take care of their property with the utmost care and passion. They don't have to say "I love my job," it's shown already in the way they interact with their customers, their livelihood and their staff.
Seasonal fruit and vegetable picking, special events like a "Gardeners Lecture Series," birthday parties and hayrides, field trips for local schools, a one-mile walking trail through fields of vegetable and cut flowers, Christmas wreath and trees, and a Christmas shop in a 1700s barn make for a wonderful time at this idyllic location. One visit is not enough -- coming to Tangerini's could easily become a way of life, part of a special, wholesome weekly regimen.
Tangerini's Spring Street Farm is our pick as one of suburban Boston's best run farms. Everything here is so real and down to earth and the produce, gifts, events, ice cream and a place to commune with nature create a place where you look forward to returning to the minute you leave --- the sign of a great business.
