We hope that the month of August is off to a good start for you! The cooler weather is very refreshing, especially for the Fresh Start Farmers who work tirelessly growing, maintaining, and harvesting so many vegetables! Did you know that the Fresh Start Umoja Farmers in Concord have a wholesale contract with the NH Food Bank to grow ethnic crops? Through the “NH Feeding NH” program, the Food Bank is purchasing culturally appropriate food grown by the Fresh Start Farmers to distribute to area food pantries and soup kitchens to provide more recognizable foods to families in the community. 

It's a Bread Week!

Fresh bread from the Crust and Crumb will be available this week to add to your FarmShare! Flavors include: Whole Wheat, Tomato Herb, and Honey Oat! The Crust and Crumb sources as many local ingredients as possible to help strengthen our local food system, and was the first Certified Local bakery in New Hampshire! Did you know that they save their scraps and donate them to farmers to feed their pigs? Minimizing waste can be really sweet!
