What is Roots at Robie’s?  Glad you asked!  We are Joshua and Amber Enright, owners of Roots Café and Catering.  On Thanksgiving Day 2015 our family took a few minutes to peer into the windows of Robie’s Country Store.  What we saw that day was a glimpse into our future.  We knew that Robie’s was a destination spot for history buffs and presidential hopefuls and thought the location was priceless.  Without hesitation, we began our quest to win over the hearts and minds of Robie’s Historic Preservation Board. (They liked us.  They really did!)

ROOTS MISSION:   To keep this historic location alive by offering Country Store items as well as introducing new vendors and menu ideas. We will change with the seasons and work with local farmers and craftsmen to ensure quality products that we can stand behind.  We wanted to bring back local produce, meats, arts, grains, and dairy, and promise to always find the freshest and most unique products available.  (Local sometimes more expensive than processed, preserved, and from other countries… just so we are on the same page!)

Local Vendors include:

North Country Smoke House: Claremont, NH  Maple Sausage links 

PT Farms: North Haverhill, NH ground beef, sausage patties, and ground pork

Farmland and Native Maine: Applewood smoked bacon, hormone free chicken, and Turkey

Page’s Sap House: Maple Syrup

Littleton Gristmill: Corn meal, wheat flour, and various grains

Breakfast Jams: Beaulieu’s Preserves and Laurel Hill Jams and Jellies, Manchester and Bedford, NH

Coffee: Java Tree Coffee, Manchester, NH

Pasta: Valicenti, Hollis, NH

Teas:  A&E, Amherst,NH

Milk and Cream: Hatchland, North Haverhill, NH

Fungus Farm:  Mushrooms, Bow, NH

Produce:  Lettuce and Spinach as of now comes directly from NH farms

and seasonal veggies supplied from various farms and ordered by Johnson’s Golden Harvest

Our catering and passion for helping and feeding people is the backbone of this venture.  We have a lot of connections so if we can’t provide you with whatever you need we will find it for you!   We will make your nightly meals, have your weekend supplies ready for your lakeside get-aways, and be there for you when you just want to sip coffee by the river.

Nothing is beyond our means so just ask… Weddings, graduations, baby showers, landscaping, in house chef prepared meals, room rentals…This is your place as much as it is ours.  Thank you and have a great rest of your week!

Love… Kelly, Brenna, JJ, Joshua, and Amber…
