From Farm to Market

 

continued

At the end of June, Trinh Pifer sold the Garden Mill on Main St. to Manchester resident Jennifer Fairfield. Fairfield says she's been a gardener and birder for most of her life and that after twenty-five years in human resources, she was "very ready to do something that had meaning to me." She says she chose Chelsea because it "is such a vibrant community and the downtown merchants are so active--it's a great place for a business."

The store offers both practical and whimsical supplies for garden and nature enthusiasts--from tools and pots to sculptures and birdhouses. Fairfield plans to keep Pifer's inventory and expand the birding supplies, as well as focus even more on children's gardening. "Getting kids into the garden is a real passion of mine," she says. "When kids grow the broccoli they're more likely to eat it!"

The Garden Mill, 110 S. Main St., 475-3539, Tues.-Wed. 10 a.m.-7 p.m., Thurs.-Sat. 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Sun. Noon-6 p.m. www.thegardenmill.com
