"We have everything you need for Thanksgiving!" says Martha, "Cream, butter, squash, apples and pumpkins for pies, sweet potatoes, onions, cranberries, potatoes, and even the turkey and herbs!"
Create a festive setting with decorative corn and guords and, if someone else is doing the cooking, Wealden has perfect hostess gifts--hand turned wooden bowls, books, aprons, a honey bear, more.
"The cheese pumpkin makes a great pie.  Just bake, scoop out the pumpkin, and puree."
There's something wonderful about a baking turkey with herbs. 
Another great "pie pumpkin" and try it for Martha's Mom's delicious Pumpkin Cornbread recipe (below).  "It's like a dessert!" Martha says.
Local fresh butter and cream, very necessary ingredients, mmmm.

Tender Wealden sweet potatoes

A perfect little hostess present or stocking gift--syrup or honey.

Warren Miskell's bowls are beautiful to look at, hold, and use -- another great gift.
Succulent Mache is perfect for a light post Thanksgiving salad.    Top it with some gorgeous goat cheese, fresh pear, and cranberry... you'll feel healthy all over.
