Here in New England: Hard Work

“When we finished,” Nancy says, “I felt we were back, as much as we could be.” From 17 bottles, her Three Acre Kitchen brand has grown to 1,000 cases a year. She makes a balsamic marinade now, too, flavored with juniper and rosemary, and a blueberry balsamic glaze, all helped along the way by her friends who’d come over and taste spoonfuls of her recipes until perfection.

“Carter would so love this,” Nancy says. She has just served lunch–fresh greens and bits of fruit, all topped with her dressing. Her eyes are smiling. “I can just see him hawking this at farmers’ markets. He’d be so proud. He’d have so much fun with it.”

    Thank you for this well-written article. Carter was my cousin and is still greatly missed. We are so proud of my aunt Nancy and the success she has achieved with her yummy products…and we love to receive our Christmas package every year filled with Three Acre Kitchen goodies!
