Welcome to the Fall FarmShare!

It’s week one of the fall FarmShare! If you are joining us for the first time, welcome! And welcome back if you have been an ongoing member! We appreciate all of your support and hope you will enjoy the bounty that the fall harvest has to offer. 

The fall FarmShare will continue to offer fresh, local fruit and veggies; we source as much as we can from the Fresh Start Farmers, until their season comes to a close. After that we continue to source from local farms around New England to continue to strengthen the local food system and serve our role as a food hub. 

*Indigenous Peoples' Day Schedule Changes*

In order for farmers and staff to observe the holiday, you will be receiving your FarmShare customization email this afternoonYou will have until Monday, 10/9 at midnight to make changes to your FarmShare.

Deliveries and pickups will operate on the normal schedule. This week, you may see some substitutions in your FarmShare since the amounts of crops available were estimated today and might be off a bit by the harvest next week. We appreciate your flexibility and understanding!

of the Week

Spicy Collard Greens and Black Eyed Peas with Fresh Tomatoes

Perfect to warm you up on a cold fall day! And you can get many of the ingredients in your FarmShare, like collard greens, hot peppers, and onions.

*New Beverage*

Nitro Cold Brew from Dean’s Beans- Dean Cycon founded Dean’s Beans Organic Coffee Company in 1993 after working as an environmental and indigenous rights lawyer. He set out to prove that a for-profit business could create meaningful change through ethical business practices rooted in respect for the earth, the farmer, our co-workers and the consumer. 

This cold brew features organic black coffee that is brewed for 24 hours to create a refreshing burst of caffeine!


Dairy Items

Plymouth Cheeses

Plymouth Artisan Cheese Co. boasts American’s oldest cheddar, made in Vermont from an 1890 recipe! You can certainly taste the difference: the raw milk for this cheese is single-sourced from a herd of Holstein and Jersey cows. Each flavor is aged for a minimum of 60 days and when it is ready, it is dipped in hot wax, the traditional form of packaging that Plymouth has used for over 130 years.


Try from flavors like Garlic Peppercorn, Smoked, Black Truffle, and Hot Pepper!


Protein Items

Bone-In Chicken Breast from Robie Farm

It may seem simple, but chicken breast is a great low-fat source of protein and is very versatile. All of the poultry from Robie Farm is pasture-raised which results in meat that is high quality, tender, flavorful and rich in vitamin A and Omega-3 fatty acids.

Great for grilling, stir-fries, curries, casseroles, and so much more!

Thank you & we'll see you soon!
