About The Producer
Calef’s Country Store
In 1869, just after the Civil War, Mary Chesley Calef mortgaged her family farm and pledged her savings to open Calef’s Store in the front rooms of her modest home in Barrington NH. Five generations of the Calef family operated Calef’s Big Store until the 1990’s, including Mary’s son Senator Austin Calef. Today the traditions endure as Calef’s Country Store serves the local community as well as visitors from afar. We still pump our own molasses and honey, cheese is aged in our cooler, and our smoked Ham is mouthwatering.
Walk through our doors today and take a step back to a simpler time, when customer service wasn’t a gimmick, but the way things were done.
The wood floors creak with stories of lore, our wood stove warms passersby, the aroma of fresh baked breads and donuts entice even the healthiest of folks.
Jar after jar of penny candy tempts young and old alike.
Our Calef’s brand old fashioned jams, jellies, pickle items, bread and soup mixes offer something for everyone.
The wooden pickle barrel is still a focal point in the store. Our Ginger Snaps are renowned for their bite.
Next time you visit New Hampshire, stop by and pay us a visit, you’ll be glad you did. Store hours and directions.
Each Thanksgiving, I made individual sized Mincemeat pies just like my grandmother always did. My family said the Mincemeat pies I made this year were very addicting! I had many compliments! I was looking for recipes to make my own this year when I stumbled upon your country store. I will definitely be back to get more next Thanksgiving!
I placed an order for my mom for Christmas. She used to make mincemeat from scratch and she said this mincemeat is delicious!
