Update on 01/31/24: I no longer sell on Etsy but please feel free to visit my more recent blog posts on gardening, such as making your own seed tapes or the different types of seeds available, food preservation like canning and fermenting, hydroponics, and more.
Two Ponds Farm has a new vintage item available; apothecary glasses. These are graduated glasses/beakers that would have originally been used by hospitals or biology or chemistry laboratories. They work well as drinking glasses, beer glasses or a vase! I am not sure how old they are but they were manufactured by the Mercer Glass Works Company in New York City which at the time was based at 17 W 17th street (see current picture from Google maps below). They are still in their original boxes, likely never used! They are solid at almost 1 pound each and measure approximately 7.25 inches high by 3.5 inches in diameter at the top and 3 inches in diameter at the base. Please contact me for more information. Thanks!
Thank you for visiting my new website. The previous purpose of this site was to share more information about my online Etsy store and the products I sell. I started a new Etsy store just before Thanksgiving 2016 that focused on all-natural items that are sourced from our land in central Wisconsin. I have since shut down my Etsy store and instead have pivoted to blogging about topics that interest me such as gardening, fermenting, food preservation such as canning, herbs, chickens, and ducks, and some crafts.
In 2016, my family and I moved from the New York City area to small town Wisconsin. Our move, this website and blog (and our previous Etsy store) is the result of our desire over the past several years to simplify our lives, increase our quality of life, reconnect with nature, and enjoy a more self-sufficient life. I grew up as a country kid in central Pennsylvania working on my grandfather's fruit farm and as a corn "de-tassler" at a local seed farm. My background is in biology where my love of nature originated. I am a former research scientist and professor and have now transitioned to a part-time stay-at-home mom, self-employed tutor, and small business owner. Thank you for taking the time to check out my site.
