BELL FARM SHOPS

Bell Farm is comprised of Bell Farm Gift & Home, Backyard Birds & Garden, & Forever Christmas.  We are technically one shop, but we provide you three distinct experiences under one roof.  In general, we pride ourselves on unique product, thoughtful & intentional product displays that inspire and excellent customer service.  Our store is 3,600 sq ft; there is so much to see, most have to take multiple loops.  Bell Farm Shops is a place where you come when you want to browse, feel at home away from home and enjoy!

BELL FARM GIFTS & HOME

Bell Farm Gift & Home is where you go when you want to find something truly different and special.  We maintain certain product lines, but we are also always bringing in newness to keep you finding a special something every time you visit.  We carry wall decor, home accents, barware, pottery & travel mugs, serveware, seasonal, baby, pet, cards & stationary, women's accessories, beauty, gift sets and so much more!

BACKYARD BIRDS & GARDEN FRILLS

Backyard Birds & Garden Frills has all you need for your birds and garden decor.  We carry all the essentials; bird seed, bird feeders, bird baths, bird houses, and pole systems.  In terms of garden decor we carry small statuary, wind chimes, wind spinners, rain chains, rain gauges and more.

FOREVER CHRISTMAS

Upstairs is Christmas ALL YEAR ROUND!  We carry ornaments, Christmas home decor, Christmas lanterns, snow globes, faux greens, light up prints and much more!  Christmas time is our absolute favorite and we decorate the entire store and have Christmas events!

NECTAR CAFE

Nectar Cafe was added in 2020.  We always dreamed of adding a coffee shop to add to the experience, but inside the store just wasn't feasible.  Covid-19 inspired some out of the box thinking, and it was during that time we came up with the concept for a food trailer outside the store.  My brother in law, Paul started the trailer and now it is run by his first hire, Sarah Diaz!  They serve coffee, specialty coffee drinks, breakfast and more!  During the holidays they offer hot cider, hot cocoa and snacks.  This year they are trying special holiday late night hours and we hope it is successful to bring back year over year!

SAINT NICKS TREE FARM

Saint Nicks Tree Farm is run by Paul Corgan and he offers Nova Scotian balsam fir trees, wreaths, tree stands and more!  He kicks off every Thanksgiving weekend and goes until they sell out!

THE HISTORY

1988 - Bell Farm is created

Bell Farm was built and established in 1988 by Rex & Judy Lambert originally as an antique shop. They filled barn filled with treasures and surrounded it by beautiful perennial gardens and a picket fence out front that are all still there today.

2005 - Backyard Birds & Garden Frills was added!

Inspired by their personal hobbies of gardening and wild birds, Judy & Rex decided to add a second shop in 2005 and immediately started additions to accommodate this new nature related business. Their daughter, Kelly began running this shop in 2009.

2018 - Michelle & John Corgan buy Bell Farm!

It became time for Judy & Rex to retire, so they had to say a bitter sweet goodbye to Bell Farm.  At the time they were selling, Michelle & John Corgan were looking for the right next steps in their lives.  They had just gotten married and moved to Portsmouth, NH from New Jersey.  Michelle has a background in retail & buying and John has a background in finance.  When they saw this property for sale, they knew this was the next step they were looking for.  They feel so lucky to have found such a beautiful place and will continue to maintain the lovely traditions set by Rex & Judy, while making it their own as well.
