Episode Summary

Artisanal Crafts and Foods
Although the family had been involved in making extracts for three generations previously, Charles H. Baldwin and his father, H.M. Baldwin, officially established the company Charles H. Baldwin and Sons in 1888. Charles Baldwin peddled his extracts all over the Northeast while his wife stayed home and raised the family, tended the farm, and packed up the orders to ship to her husband for distribution. The current owner, Earl B. Moffatt, is the great-grandson of the founder. For thousands of years, baskets served as indispensable objects in many cultures. Although modern society is less dependent on them, our long connection seems to have left an archetypal imprint, a symbol of elemental simplicity. Their inclusion in our homes can soften the edges of our often hectic daily lives. Today, we visit Newt Washburn, a fourth-generation New Hampshire basket maker, to learn the basics of the craft.moreless
