60 | OCTOBER 2015 explains, "We didn't want the bakery or kitchen to feel at all sterile or com- mercial." Warm red walls and wood shelving, barn door details that echo the farm stand's exterior, and the bakery's rustic countertop—made of salvaged wood from Cayer's own property—help the bakery blend beautifully with all that surrounds it. A key element to the design is the spacious kitchen, where Marini's team of three bakers and other staff members can work comfortably. Two large windows open onto the space, letting in natural light for the bakers and allowing customers to see the freshly made pies, muf- fins, croissants, and cookies as they emerge from the oven. "We've seen such a great response from our cus- tomers—especially when they come into the bakery to see and smell the freshly baked goods," Marini says. "Word of mouth and the quality of our items have been our two great- est marketing tools." The new bakery fits right in with the Marini way of life: 90 percent of the bakery's goods are made from scratch, and many of them include ingredients fresh from the fields. Customers can purchase boxed pies and packages of fresh muf- fins and cookies, or order from the service counter, where they can enjoy friendly service and a cup of coffee from Atomic Café Roasters with one of Marini's famous cider donuts. "I'm very excited to see how customers respond to the bakery in the fall," he says. "People come from all over New England to visit our corn maze—it'll be great to be able to send them home with a pumpkin pie or a dozen cider donuts." To accommodate the bakery's growing popularity, Cummings, Cayer, and Marini hope to expand the farm stand even more in the future. "Mat and Shawn knew and under- stood my vision even before I did," says Marini. "I was extremely lucky to be able to work with them." The bakery is rustic, spacious, and full of natural light.
