There's not another old fashioned country store like Calef's in the entire US of A, or for that matter, the entire world! Established in 1869, Calef's has been "buying local" since Ulysses S. Grant was president. We currently source over 90% of our gifts and specialty foods from small New England companies. Come visit our store in Barrington, NH or shop online for Calef's Snappy Cheese, Jams, Jellies, Ginger Snaps, Penny Candy, Dill Pickles, Maple Syrup, Peanut Brittle and a whole bunch of other nostalgic merchandises you won't find anywhere!
Calef's signature Gift Boxes and Baskets make a wonderful gift. Whether for close friends or business associates, our gift boxes are easy to give and a delight to receive! You can check out our standard gift boxes here or give us a call at 800-462-2118 and let us design a New England made gift to your specific needs and budget.
