Bellview Farms began back in 1914 when Angelo and Maria Quarella emigrated from Italy and purchased a small farm in Landisville, NJ. They grew crops and raised animals, but wine didn’t come into the picture until four generations later, with current owner Jim Quarella. In 2001, he pursued his own dream of opening a winery and turned his family’s farm into a thriving vineyard. Now he’s growing Blaufränkisch, Cab Franc, Cab Sauvignon, Cayuga White, Chambourcin, Chardonnay, Viognier, Merlot, Muscat Ottonel, Niagara, Petit Verdot, Pinot gris, Syrah, Tinta Cão, Touriga Nacional, Traminette and Vidal Blanc grapes. The winery grew and grew over time, a larger production area was added, the vineyard was expanded and the tasting room was renovated. Currently, Bellview has 40 acres of vineyards and produces over 8000 cases of amazing wine per year. We feel very lucky to share this amazing local product with all of you. Come check it out

FREE LIFE CHANGING DONUTS (saturday 5/20) w/ @csartphilly 12-4pm. .
.
Everything cool is all happening today, and If you are like me, you will try to hit every one of them, because if you don’t, you will feel regret about what you missed. With that being said, DON’T MISS THIS ONE.
.
.
We are giving away freshly made, incredibly delicious, pennsylvania dutch style donuts for FREE and pairing them with @littlebabysic ice cream and @vaultbrewing beer. All the money you spend (please bring cash) on ice cream and beer will go to support a rad local art collective called Grizzly Grizzly & Co, which has started a really interesting Art CSA program. Basically, you buy a share, like with any other CSA, but instead of food, you get original amazing artwork from 6 different artists. It's a really great way to support your local art scene while also building a cool collection of artwork for a relatively affordable price. .
.
If you come to Martha tomorrow afternoon ( a rare saturday day time opening for us) you can eat some FREE bad ass donuts, meet the various artists, see some examples of their work in our mezzanine gallery, and just relax in the mild temperatures on our patio and play bocce ball. .
.
The Kinetic Sculpture Derby rolls by Frankford and York at about 1:50pm so stop by before or after and hang out for a second. If you don’t, you will surely regret not trying these donuts (and supporting our local arts scene). Cheers!

FREE LIFE CHANGING DONUTS w @csartphilly tomorrow, Saturday 5/20 12-4pm . .
.
Yup, you read that right. Martha is opening early (12pm) to host an amazing donut / @littlebabysic / @vaultbrewing / bocce ball party to celebrate and support our good friends from Grizzly Grizzly & co, who have put together a really cool innovative CSA for artwork!
.
.
Wait. What? A CSA for artwork? Yup, thats correct. Just like a Community Supported Agriculture program, this CSA supports a direct maker-to-buyer relationship between artists and collectors working and living in the Philadelphia region. Featuring a diverse range of contemporary art from local artists, the program offers curated “shares” of innovative and affordable artwork. Grizzly Grizzly & CO. have commissioned 6 artists to make 50 “shares” for this program. These shares include a range of diverse art objects including sculpture, prints, paintings, rings, records, photographs, and drawings. You can see some examples in our new mezzanine gallery space this month. Each work is unique, and even multiples will be individualized. Interested collectors will purchase a share (aka a “subscription”) and in return will receive three “farm boxes” of locally produced artwork at intervals throughout the season. The first pick up will be in September 2017 and the last will be in December 2017.
.
.
Apparently the Kinetic Sculpture Derby rolls by Frankford and York around 1:50pm so please stop by before or after the parade and eat some of our friend Mary’s super delicious generations-old Pennsylvania Dutch recipe donuts for FREE. While you are here, you can enjoy some awesome ice cream and beer and know that your money (please bring cash) will go to support a really cool local arts program.

FREE LIQUID ART w/ @roypitzbarrelhouse #MarthaMondays (5/15 6-8pm).
.
.
Liquid Art is an expression of craftsmanship. The Roy Pitz brewers use barley, hops, yeast and Chambersburg water as their canvas, and then strive to create a balanced piece of art in liquid form. They immerse themselves into the selection of the finest raw ingredients, and then add a pinch of this and a pound of that, to create a product that hopefully reflects both their skill and imagination. Their product is passionately and artfully created both in the bottle and also with the paintings that are on the bottle.
.
.

Come try some delicious Liquid Art for FREE this Monday with head barman Martin Sandeen of the new and amazing looking Roy Pitz Barrel House opening up very very soon at 10th and Spring Garden. .
.
Founded by Longtime friends Jesse Rotz and Ryan Richards eight years ago, Roy Pitz Brewing now has a production facility, a Chambersburg brew pub, and this new sour beer focused Barrel House opening in Philly. To celebrate this important imminent opening, we will be pouring lots of FREE samples, discounting all Roy Pitz beers (including an amazing soft pretzel gose!!!), passing out FREE snacks from @ohharpo and also offering ½ priced Roy Pitz beer cocktails from @landersmike.

It should be a lot of fun, please join us :) #liquidart #freebeer #freesnacks #happyhour #friends #neighbors #barrels #beercocktails #doit

HE’S BAAACCCKKKK!!! @pizza_gutt #popuptuesdays 5/16 6pm sharp!
.
.

It’s been waaayyy too long. we have been totally craving those magical, crusty, soulful pan pizza pies that only the one true Daniel Gutter aka @pizzagutt can create. If you are reading this and have not yet tried one, come right at 6pm on Tuesday to Martha and order a slice or whole pie for you and your friends. It’s sort of a life changing pizza, IMHO. it's kinda like if Pizza Hut was made with love and real ingredients. Anyway, unfortunately Martha will not have its regular food menu available that night (we are normally closed on Tuesdays) but we will have our funky and delicious beverage selection for you to enjoy with your pizza. How about a nice @roypitzbrewery soft pretzel gose to go with your pie?
.
.

In addition to the pizza, our friend and neighbor @beatinghearts will be making and selling her dope pound cakes with boozy berries for desert, and who knows what other neioghbors might show up? Come hang out try some ‘za and drinks some dranks. You’ll be glad you did :).

SOUR BEER IS TAKING OVER THE WORLD w/ @roypitzbarrelhouse #MarthaMondays (5/15 6-8pm).
.
.
And we couldn’t be happier! Our friends from @roypitzbrewery are about to open a very exciting new barrel house and brewpub dedicated to sour and unique barrel aged brews over at 10th and Spring Garden, right near Union Transfer. To celebrate this momentous occasion, we are psyched to have head barman Martin Sandeen join us at the #MarthaMonday table to pour all of you lucky neighbors some FREE BEER for the evening. We will, of course, have some dope complimentary snacks courtesy of @ohharpo and some killer beer cocktails from @landersmike offered for ½ price during happy hour.
.
.
We clearly love sour beers over here, so we will also also have ½ priced pints of Roy Pitz’s delicious Sour Hound (kind of like a sour Oktoberfest) and their newest brew, Das Pretzel Gose (!) , which is a kettle soured German style ale mashed with York City’s German style pretzels and infused with sea salt. If sours aren’t your thing (we can forgive you) we will also have discounted bottles of the Fatsacks IPA and Honeysucker PIlsner.
.
.
So come drink FREE SOUR BEER with us this Martha Monday and learn more about this exciting addition to our neighborhood. You’ll be glad you did!
