Greetings from Fresh Start Farms!

Asparagus is here! This fresh spring treat is here thanks to D.A. Smiarowski Farm in Sunderland, MA. Asparagus has a short season, so we got lots in this week for you to enjoy! Spinach is back this week from Harlow Farm. A few of the Concord Fresh Start farmers have their first crops of the season ready for harvest including Alice who has a few radishes and spinach to share this week! 

This week we have Ambrosia Apples from Champlain Orchards. These apples are certified ecologically grown and are a super crisp, sweet eating apple with a honey flavor. They are reminiscent of their believed-to-be-parent Golden Delicious and are perfect for eating fresh! 

Also, new this week, Mild Cheddar from 5 Generations Creamery and Ramen Noodles from Valicenti Pasta Farm. Bliss Berry Kombucha back in stock!

For some of you, this is your last week of the spring FarmShare. Have you signed up for the summer yet? The Fresh Start Farmers are just getting started and have so much delicious food to share with you! Check out the photos below for a glimpse at the Fresh Start Farmer’s plots.

Reminder: It’s getting warmer, don’t forget to leave your cooler out for home delivery!

Sneak peak of the new Boscawen Farm!

You’re the first to know about the newest addition to our farm site properties in Boscawen! Four farmers are growing their farm businesses with additional land at this site. Plus, we’re really excited about 3 acres of blueberries. Stay tuned for an announcement about a summer gathering with blueberry picking!
