Dear Friends of Piper Mtn. Maine Wreaths & Gifts,
Thank you once again for opening our little website and taking the time to read our news. And we have big news indeed.
We have sold our home, farm and business! The new owners are Mac and Anne McCullen. Mac is currently finishing up a 34 year career in the Navy. We are running the farm this year as usual and they will be taking over on January 1, 2019. We have purchased a home about 10 miles down the road in the neighboring town of Hampden and have begun moving stuff and will be moving ourselves after Christmas. We will still be involved in the farm as mentors and consultants.
Mac is no stranger to the land, having grown up in Pennsylvania. He knows what hard work is and there’s no shortage of it around the farm. He and Anne have been spending time here and will be with us much of this season observing and learning.
One day in 1983 or ‘84 a customer observed that our wreaths were very nice (we were making about 200 at this time) and mentioned how much a relative in Arizona would love one. So (guess who) stepped right up and said we would send her one. In 1992 we were shipping about 300. We built a new barn and shop and were told about a small mail order company called Country Spice Christmas which was for sale. We bought the assets and here we are, 25 years later.
The McCullens will bring new ideas and new energy to the farm and will continue the mail order segment, making needed changes. We wish them well. We thank you for your loyalty, some of you for the entire history of our ownership. MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Jim and Norma Corliss

In response to requests for a centerpiece that's slightly larger and a bit more formal, we've created this three-candle arrangement—perfect for that special holiday table. Also available with red candles.
Welcome the holiday season with our traditional Balsam Fir Wreath. Our 22" full, fresh, and ever-so-fragrant Balsam Wreath is hand-crafted here at the farm with careful attention and lasting quality. Decorated with red velveteen bow, holly berries, and three clusters of pine cones.
A true taste of Maine for the holidays. This year we have added seashells to the decorations on the wreath. Includes:
• Our fragrant 22" Balsam Fir Wreath with sea shell accent
• 6.5 oz. can of Lobster Meat and/or 15 oz. can of Lobster Chowder
• 15 oz. can of Condensed Clam Chowder
• 8.4 oz. bar of Katahdin Cheddar Cheese
• 250 ml. (approx. 8 oz.) jug of Maine Maple Syrup
Our hand-crafted wreath is decorated entirely from nature's bounty, with natural fiber angel and bow. Give us room for creativity; your wreath may not be precisely as pictured. We thought perhaps this was the perfect vehicle to introduce the 'Natural Giftpack" which will feature the wreath and a selection of granolas and trail mixes fresh from the kitchen of a lady in East Blue Hill, Maine
We designed this giftpack to show off a few of the many ways to enjoy the unique flavor of maple. Maple candy, some granulated maple sugar, 250 ml of syrup (warm up a couple of tablespoons and put it on vanilla ice cream) and some maple flavored popcorn. The snow themed wreath seemed like a natural companion to all this sweetness.
Here's a delicious way to warm your holiday. Includes:
• Our fragrant 22" Balsam Fir Wreath
• 1.7 oz. bottle of Maine Maple Syrup
• 10 oz. jar of Cranberry Marmalade
• 10 oz. jar of Wild Blueberry Preserves
Full of the sweet summer flavor of Maine blueberries!
The taste of Wild Blueberry Preserves, Blueberry Scone Mix, and Blueberry Syrup comes with a Balsam
Wreath decorated in a beautiful blueberry motif, making a
wonderful holiday gift.
